“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” ~Albert Einstein
College costs aren’t what they used to be, and students in college need to do whatever they can to save money when they’re enrolled in school. Nationwide Bank did a study on the spending habits of college students, and the average student needs to budget very carefully if they want to be able to afford everything they need. Twenty-six percent of a student’s budget goes towards room and board, and 19% goes towards tuition and associated fees. A whopping 40% goes towards discretionary costs for technology, entertainment, clothing, and cosmetics.
