“The Truist program has supplied me with the skills and mindset necessary for planning ahead. Having adopted a more proactive stance for the future, I’ll be better prepared for whatever challenges life may throw my way, throughout and beyond college.”

“I am grateful to have taken these modules. Because of Truist Financial Foundations, I took action in finding the most practical art college and saving for it. Knowing the possibilities of federal loans and other monetary aid drove me to schedule meetings with officers at the Ringling College of Art and Design, a more affordable art school.”
