Money Matter$

Money Matters was started in 2021 through funds received through the faculty senate’s signature student experience fund.  Our goal is to make Money Matters a place for everything money related on campus.  Each semester we hold multiple Lunch n’ Learn events where mainly Mines Alumni come back to campus and speak on subjects related to investing, personal finance, buying a house, crypto currency and many others.  The next I Dig Money events are listed below.   In addition to the Lunch n’ Learn events we have also built online asynchronous personal finance modules.  These fun interactive modules will help you learn the basics of investing, types of accounts, how to build a budget and more.  Finally, it is our goal to increase the Mines Student bodies knowledge on personal finance related topics.  If you would like us to come speak to your group, please reach out!


“Invest in your 20’s, or invest in your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s.  The choice is yours”
