Albert Schweitzer once said, "The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others." And Dan Rather said, “Service is a virtue.”  The Student Money Management Center hosted the Friends Help Friends Community Resource Fair based on these concepts.  If you or a friend are in need, please utilize these resources to support you in a time of need.

"Sometimes in life, you can fall down holes you can't climb out of by yourself. That's what friends and family are for - to help. They can't help, however, unless you let them know you're down there." - Meg Cabot
