Financial Literacy Month comes to a close

Today marks the end of Financial Literacy Month in Minnesota! True to their word, Commerce Commissioner Rothman and his staff led solid efforts all month long to help Minnesotans of all ages get the best value for their money.

The second week in April was Higher Education Financial Literacy Week. OHE had events scheduled throughout the week aimed at helping students and their families navigate the bumpy waters of paying for college.

We listened to dozens of students and their families talk about the difficulty of paying for college. Once out of school, countless students struggle to cover their student loan payments. Instead of living the dream by buying a new car, their first home, or starting their own business, many students are straddled with student loans that can be several hundred dollars a month.

This is one of the most important challenges facing our state. Check out OHE's website for more information!
