Frequently Asked Questions

  • Common Cents aims to make personal finance interesting with activities like Kahoots, choose-your-own-adventure, jeopardy, and more (most of the time with a prize for winners!). We also forge innovation through interdisciplinary events like Masterchef when we had a live cooking demo and talked about meal prepping under a budget.

    Generally, we host a wide variety of events, including speaker events, informational classes, career panels, and online webinars. Because of the current virtual environment, all events for the fall 2020 semester will be virtual; however, we look forward to hosting more in-person events when we are back on campus.

  • No! We encourage anyone and everyone to join as a general body member because personal finance knowledge is applicable to everyone, regardless of your background.

    To become a member, all you have to do is fill out our interest form and you will be added to the listserv!

  • Common Cents Communities are groups of 6-8 people who are interested in personal finance and want to socialize with other members! Common Cents Communities meet a few times per month for online games, movie nights, and friendly competitions.

    CC Communities are a great way to make friends online amidst the virtual environment!

  • Unfortunately, we have stopped accepting applications for the Fall 2020 semester. Keep an eye out for when we recruit in the beginning of next semester.
