What We Do

The Center for Financial Independence educates and supports all Northeastern students on their path to financial literacy and independence while encouraging peer-to-peer knowledge creation and sharing. The Center primarily operates in three ways: hosting workshops and presentations, student mentor financial counseling, and Thrive – the personal finance incubator.




We empower students to make confident financial decisions.

Thrive delivers critical content on how to earn, manage and invest money, as well as appreciate how general market and economic conditions will impact students’ financial decisions throughout their lives.
