The grad school I am going to is in a large university that has its own credit union. Would I benefit enough from switching my banking to them for the time I am there or should I stick with the big bank I have now? (it is a 2 year grad program and I have no clue if I will stay in the city after I’m done with it)

Maggie, if you are happy with your current bank, it might make sense to keep your current accounts, but you can also open an account with the credit union if you want a local bank for convenience. If you are being paid a stipend, you can direct it into more than one bank account, FYI. That way, you can use the credit union for cash/debit transactions and perhaps maintain your other accounts for other payments you may already have set up. I don’t advise using a debit card that is attached to your primary and largest bank account anyway, so this might be a way to handle that.
