Each spring semester, DFE's Student Advisory Committee organizes the Demystifying Finance Series, which is designed to increase first-years' understanding of finance careers in a zero pressure environment. The series' four sessions cover major job roles in the finance industry, how to pursue a finance career, and finance resources on campus.

Each session is led by seniors who have gone through the rigorous finance recruiting process and done internships. No knowledge about finance is necessary or assumed, and attendees are encouraged to ask any and all questions.
