Financial Cents

Welcome to NIU Financial Cents! Through our peer educator group, course presentations, workshops and additional resources, we strive to give the NIU community, as well as local communities, a better understanding of important financial decisions that will impact their lives before, during, and well beyond their college careers. 

Financial Cents discussed student loan refinancing with Senator Dick Durbin at NIU.
