My nephew just shipped out to college as a freshman at Syracuse University in New York the other day and I visited with him just before he left. I gave him the usual pep talk that I would give anyone just starting out – including the “study hard”, “make the right choices”, “you will fit in great” talk – all of that stuff – and of course my favorite advice of being frugal and controlling spending. To that end, wanted to make sure that readers see this article below that was published in US News Education today which gives some logical but pointed tips on how to save money while a college student. “How to Save on Personal Expenses in College“.
In addition, our own tips are included on the Financial Aid Sense website and in our newly updated publication about financial aid and college financing.
