College Connect: Saving Money at the Grocery Store

By Zack Newman I relish food and am constantly enticed by the possibility of a smorgasbord of flavors. While the occasional splurge is ok, constructive habits can lead to long-term savings. This happens a few dollars at a time. I compiled a few of my favorite tricks below to save money at the food store. The envelope trick: Budget out the amount of money you anticipate spending on “fun food” ...[Read More]

College Connect: Filing Taxes Cause College Students to Confront their Money Skills

By Lisa Fu College is when many young adults take their first step to financial independence. It may be taking on a part time job or simply remembering to pay the rent on time, but college is when many students often confront their responsibilities with money and find their knowledge is lacking. When it comes to filing taxes, for example, college students have many questions, but the answers ...[Read More]

College Connect: College Loans are Necessary, but Require Planning

By Azure Aladin College is expensive. Tuition, rent, textbooks, groceries and other bills add up, forcing many college students to take out loans to defer the expense of attending a university. Courtney Wheeler, a junior at the University of Georgia, qualified for a scholarship provided to Georgia residents who have performed well academically, but did not get any other assistance even though she ...[Read More]

College Connect: In Today’s Electronic Age, Receipts Can Be Your Friend

By Covey Eonyak Son My dad always told me to hold onto my receipts, no matter how minor the purchase. He was obsessed with collecting them. He even had boxes (yes, multiple) of old receipts and invoices in his home office. Just in case. A little over a year ago, my dad’s advice came back ringing in my head. I finally understood why he so meticulously kept all of his receipts. It was July ...[Read More]

College Connect: Managing Your Money Doesn’t Have to Be So Stressful

By Covey Eonyak Son You probably grew up getting allowances from your parents. Your parents probably got you a piggybank one day, and told you to not to break it open until you’ve saved enough money. And they almost definitely at some point told you to put something back at the store because you don’t really need it. This is how a lot of parents try to teach their children about financial ...[Read More]

College Connect: Yes, You Really Can Afford to Take That Internship

By Covey Eonyak Son Around this time last year, I finally got a call I spent months hoping to get. The voice on the other end offered me an internship at the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It was a happy ending to an annual ritual that thousands of college students take part in each year. We spend hours writing and refining cover letters and résumés with the hope that we’ll be chosen. So naturally, ...[Read More]

College Connect: Best money-saving apps for students

By Emma Diltz At this age, students struggle with saving money. There’s rent to pay off, groceries to buy and miscellaneous bills to check off. But half of the fun in college is being able to go out with your friends, whether it is dinner, drinks or concerts. The problem with all of these is how much money they cost. I’ve compiled the best apps that students can use to save money for the fun ...[Read More]

College Connect: Getting your first credit card and how to manage it

By Emma Diltz Getting a credit card is a big push into adulthood for a lot of people, including students. Going into college, it’s a good idea to start thinking about getting a credit card. Without good credit, it’s hard to buy a house, pay off student loans or buy a car. As a student, the best card I found is the Discover it for Students card. With this card, students don’t have to have ...[Read More]

College Connect: Effectively budgeting for the holiday season

By Emma Diltz As the holiday season is upon us, students are strapped for money more than usual. Throughout the rest of the year, they’re usually focused on buying groceries, paying rent and with the little money they have left, shopping or attending a variety of events. All too often, December rolls around, the same time every year, and students haven’t even started pricing gifts, let alone ...[Read More]

College Connect: As an international student, make sure your bank is actually ‘local’

By Daniel Levitt Telling your bank that you’re going abroad on vacation is often unnecessarily laborious. Try telling them that you’re moving abroad to study until ‘who knows when?’ Though it may seem like the last thing you need to worry about before your move, especially if it prides itself on being “the world’s local bank”, but sorting out your bank account may just be the most ...[Read More]

College Connect: Grad School Doesn’t Have to Break the Bank

By Daniel Levitt When I first told my friends and family of my plans to study in America, they thought I was barmy. And that was before I told them it was a master's degree that I wanted to pursue. As I researched journalism schools from all 50 states, my long short-list of schools stood at six: Georgetown, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Northwestern and Texas. The cheapest list price for international ...[Read More]

College Connect: A new bicycle isn’t worth it – YES IT IS!

By Daniel Levitt "I'll buy one at the start of the semester." "I'll buy one after my exam." "No, seriously, I'll buy one on the weekend." Sound familiar? There's only one time to buy that bicycle you need, and that's now! See, for all of those days and weeks that you delay the big purchase, your bank balance is being left exposed. But it doesn’t have to be big at all. The “green” ...[Read More]

November Training – What will happen to the ACA now?

College Connect: Why I have a Safety Net

Charlie Clark, Arizona State University Cronkite School I got my first job at 19 making $8.25 per hour working in a coffee shop.

College Connect: Why I never buy anything that’s not on sale

Kourtney Balsan, ASU Cronkite School I never buy anything that isn’t on sale. Red stickers and slashed prices is my norm. Why? Well, besides the fact I am a broke college student, I realized that everything will usually go on sale eventually. I learned this life tip through my own shopping experience. I love to shop, so much so, that I consider it a recreational sport or a means of relaxation. ...[Read More]
