Student Resources - Spring 2019, To Be Announced
At Thrivent Student Resources we believe students deserve to go to college without spending the rest of their lives paying for it. That’s why we offer: 1) an advanced suite of tools and resources to help students and the families prepare, plan, and pray for college; 2) educational webinars to help learn how to manage student debt and explore repayment options; 3) a network of financial guides who coach families to match their college dreams with financial means; and 4) access to student loan information and education. We want to help you have a healthier relationship with money, especially at the beginning of college. When you’re more financially secure, you’re free to live a more content, confident, and generous life. RSVP deadline TBA.
