While we are passionate about personal finance, Common Cents Collaborative ("Common Cents") is not a financial advisor, investment advisor, legal advisor, accountant, or other certified financial professional. Our primary goal is to provide valuable information and insights based on our own experiences as college students. We have encountered numerous challenges and triumphs throughout our financial journeys, both inside and outside of school.
