Financial Wellness Awareness Month



FWAM stands for Financial Wellness Awareness Month. The Financial Wellness Committee focuses on financial literacy and wellness practices to improve student financial health. This diverse team works in collaboration to streamline financial wellness efforts across campus and to align financial wellness resources and support systems.

April is Financial Wellness Awareness Month, during which a number of events are hosted virtually and in-person to cover financial wellness topics such as: loans, tax filing, balanced eating on a budget, ways to save, paying off debt and more!


The Financial Wellness Committee invites you to celebrate Financial Wellness Awareness Month! We will be hosting a variety of virtual programming where students can participate in activities and events to learn more about: loans, filing taxes, balanced eating on a budget, ways to save, paying off debt and more!
