UCSD’s John Muir College and Financial Summits announces a Personal Finance Seminar


Financial Summits is pleased to announce that it is partnering with the Muir College Council (MCC), the student government body of UCSD’s John Muir College, to offer personal finance classes to Muir Students on January 23rd and January 30th in John Muir College in the Sequoyah Room from 7:00PM to 8:30PM.

Richard Pak, MCC’s commissioner of finance, commented, “We are happy to have Financial Summits return to the UCSD campus. I attended the Financial Summits classes that were offered last spring through the UCSD Undergraduate Investment Society, and found them to be both informative and interesting. After speaking with Dean Mahaffey and my colleagues on the council, we invited Financial Summits to begin offering classes at Muir.”


Financial Summits is a San Diego based 501(c)3 nonprofit that promotes financial literacy amongst college-age students. The organization was founded in May 2011 and taught its first classes at San Diego State University in fall 2011. The organization has since taught classes at UCSD, USD, SDSU, as well as presented to other organizations. The organization has taught approximately 250 students since inception as of November 2012.


Our organization’s mission is to promote financial literacy amongst college-age students by providing them with valuable tools to help identify, develop, and fulfill their personal financial goals. We achieve this mission by working with universities to help schools develop and expand their financial education offerings so that students are better prepared to deal with the financial challenges of life.

How Financial Summits Works

We teach basic personal finance classes free of charge at universities. The classes cover financial topics such as: budgeting, student loans, credit cards, investing and retirement planning, making large purchases, and insurance. Financial Summits generally partners with university officials in admissions, dean of students, and financial aid offices to most effectively deliver and market the financial literacy classes.
