25 Tips, Ideas, Resources on Having Fun for College Students

by Broke Grad on August 20, 2008

In case you haven’t heard, college presidents are seeking debate on lowering the legal drinking age. Personally, I don’t think it will make a significant difference whether it’s lowered or stays the same. Regardless of the legal drinking age, college students share one thing in common — wanting to have fun without going broke. To help college students out, I’ve gathered 25 great tips, ideas, and resources for college students to have fun without having to call home for more money.

LOL. I should have known it was you linking those posts. Thanks for putting me towards the top.

Last tip: If you have a junk mail email account, use it to sign up for free events with free food, drink, entertainment. I went to an art gallery party with free drinks, good music, decent art for the price of a subway ride to and fro. All I had to do was get marketing email from Toyota about their hipster cars. (Which I’m rapidly falling out of their demographic, but they don’t need to know that! Or maybe I’m already out of it…)

Oh, and don’t bother with junk email accounts, just use http://www.guerrillamail.com/

Wow, makes me wish I was in college again :) You know when you’re in school and everyone tells you it goes by fast, and enjoy it, and blah blah blah. Well it’s true! Before you know it college ends and you’re a working stiff :) Anyhow, thanks for mentioning the post.
