Between attending classes, joining clubs and pledging fraternities and sororities, college students across the country are wondering, “Hmm. Where should I bank?”
Okay, maybe picking a bank is not so high on their to-do list, but it should be. As we know, credit unions and community banks offer some of the best and lowest fees around. And now the folks at MoneyRates.com have helped make the process a bit easier with their new list of the Best Checking Accounts for College Students.
1. Bank of the Commonwealth Student/Senior Citizen Checking
For students located in Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina locations, Bank of the Commonwealth requires a minimum $50 to open an account but after that you have virtually no other fees, except for the $2.00 out of network ATM fee.
