5 key things
You are entering your first year of the university, and you are probably excited about it and maybe a little anxious about everything. Well, relax. Adjusting is isn’t’ as hard as you would think, and soon you’ll be in school appreciating the independence. But one of the things that your independence comes with is being broke. That if you dont plan for these five (5) things.
Handouts and Pamphlets
As far as text books go, you’ll get by okay without spending too much money because someone always endured having a soft copy of the book that you can just copy. However, you still end up having to buy handouts and Pamphlets and other resources that you are asked too. Although individually they may not cost too much, you might have to buy multiple handouts and Pamphlets for one course. And that’s for all your courses. Start billing your parent for this now.
The hall weeks
You have to go for the hall weeks. They’re some of the best memories you’re going to make on campus. There are also full of vendors who just can’t wait to take your money with all their shiny stalls. Oh and if you’re a guy then going to one of this programs with a date is a financial hazard.
All the food
The next item on our list is food. If you have a sweet tooth, then your account Is really in for a tough ride. On campus, there are so many delicious things that are easily accessible and they will deliver right to your room. Yeah that is hard to resist.
Roommates and friends
The things that drains your wallet also apply to your roommates and friends. And if those people around you are a bit reckless, they will inevitably come to you frequently for a loan to get by. That can leave you low on funds as well. Basically, everyone ends up broke around the same time.
We already mentioned the independence, right? You’re basically free to go out whenever you want, even on week days. Some people ( a lot of people ) end up doing too much and blowing out their money all at once. You don’t want to do that. Being broke in the university or anywhere else is not fun.
