Watch the video below to learn a few super easy tips that will help maximize that college financial package and alleviate stress due to finances. Who wants to go through college worried about money? Not you. Watch.

Video Key Points:

1.) Make a budget at the back of your spiral or on your phone, so you can keep up with your meal plan money.

2.) At the top of the school year, set aside the money you will need for summer housing on campus and living expenses, so you do not blow through it during the school year.

3.) Use an investment app like Acorns to start investing NOW. This will be very helpful for your future. For more info, check out The Black Business School.
