Changing the College Culture #CounttheCost

Updated: Jul 24, 2020

According to a campus pulse survey conducted in 2018, Aquinas College students reported the lack of financial literacy as a major barrier to their success at Aquinas College. To address this reality, Dondreá Brown, Director of CORE has brought a financial culture movement to the Aquinas campus community through partnering with Huntington Bank, Chemical Bank, and 1428 Financial Wellness LLC. 1428 Financial Wellness LLC is an organization committed to building healthy financial behaviors in order to help others achieve financial freedom. These organizations have contributed to offering a six week workshop series each semester titled: My Money and Me. Over the past two years, Huntington Bank and Chemical Bank has made significant financial contributions to support the workshop scholarship fund.
