Boiler Financial Track is a component of Purdue’s Steps to Leaps initiative, a set of five convenient, self-assessment pillars to help students build lifelong habits that lead to more resiliency, self-confidence, financial literacy and the growth mindset.

What does Boiler Financial Track offer?

  • Free financial counseling appointments designed for students

Banzai offers lessons and tips on managing your finances, avoiding common financial mistakes, debt management, budgeting, savings, and more.

We are with you on the path ahead.

As we work to help students move toward employment and after graduation, we know the importance of establishing healthy financial habits to reach your goals after graduation. Come talk with us about your financial plans for the future.


Boiler Up and stay safe!
