As overworked college students we are sometimes left in the dark about important things like filing taxes and managing student loans. When it finally comes time for us to manage these aspects of our lives, we face a tsunami of new information to understand what needs to be done.

The end result of this is to then save you the countless hours googling, or money paying consultants to figure all this out through current methods.
