Let’s face it – one of the greatest (if not primary!) perks of running away to University is the social aspect of the college experience. It’s a pivotal opportunity for post-secondary students in their undergraduate program as it’s a prime time for climbing the social ladder not only for the popularity benefits, but for nabbing study-buddies, joining social circles and forming long-lasting friendships, and most importantly – networking.
Now, networking may not matter to you until post-graduate job-hunting time, but is great to keep in mind when considering who you’re shaking hands with in social situations!
Despite the above said benefits, there’s an incessant, nagging question on most university/college students’ minds – how the hell am I supposed to afford socializing while going to school?? The following list isn’t necessarily going to make you a millionaire, but could certainly make the school/work/social life balancing act a bit cheaper – as long as you’re cool with saving cash legally – all while growing your social circle.
