Financial Trek: Save

(This financial path is currently being improved, check back soon for an expanded trek experience!)

Most of us know it is important to save money.  In college, it can be challenging to spend less than you earn without specific financial goals to work towards. Your individual financial goals are as unique as you, so it is important to make an intentional plan that works best with your spending habits, lifestyle, and goals. 


The Save Trek includes topics such as savings accounts, investing, emergency funds, retirement, bargain shopping, and more!
