March Money Madness

Engaging U presents, “Drexel March Money Madness,” a friendly game that encourages you to adopt healthy financial practices by performing simple account checks and reflecting on your saving and spending habits. We want to help you make your money work smarter and set you on the right path for the rest of the year.
