What Comets are saying about our services
- “I thought the group activity, comparing credit card offers, was helpful in showing me the different options available. The different options (student, secured, checking vs savings) were presented well. I also didn't know you could get free credit reports.”
- “The game was extremely engaging and help give a better understanding of budgeting.”
- “This was a really helpful workshop. UTD should definitely continue providing this training and keep helping students understand financial literacy.”
