Most students these days see college as simply a means to an end. Getting in and out as quickly as possible in order to get a much needed head start in the competitive job market. But whether you're going to college to get a good degree in order to get a good job, or if you're going to college just because, you'll need a guide for survival.

Money is tight for the average college student. From loans, to rent, to car payments, the grocery budget grows smaller and smaller. So they best thing to do is learn where the free food is. The running joke is that college students will go to any event for free food and it is absolutely true. Club recruitment events, student government activities, and virtually any event during the first few weeks of a semester will have free food. Student discounts are another great way to get the things you need without falling further into debt. Many stores give student discounts, though they aren't always advertised. Ask around at local businesses, and also keep in mind that places like Amazon, Qdoba, and The Apple Store offer great discounts for students.
