Financial Wellness is virtual and has exciting plans for Fall 2020; join us every Wednesday for #FinancialWellnessWednesday!

Every Wednesday there will be a virtual event or opportunity to engage through our Instagram page: OCCWellness.

The more events you attend, the more opportunities to win e-giftcards. Some events will have prizes for competitions and some will have prizes for participation, some you will simply have fun. Additionally if you attend at least 8 events you will be entered to win 1 of 2 $50 e-giftcards.

Sign up here for all the events (or just the ones you want); we will send you a weekly reminder and the Zoom link for each event.

We want financial wellness to be part of your life!

Our mission is to educate and empower students with financial knowledge and resources, so they can ultimately apply this knowledge to their lives, have financial security, and attain financial wellness.

For many students, college is the first and most significant financial investment of a lifetime. We’d like to help you get the most out of this investment and not only develop financial literacy skills, but to develop a healthy sense of financial wellness that you can carry confidently into your future.
