Let’s face it, many college students are usually a little short on cash. Not because they don’t work or have money, but because they use their money on important items, like textbooks and food, which could be a bit pricey. Luckily, there are plenty of fun things to do with friends or alone that will cost next to nothing.
1. Go for a Hike or Walk
Put on those walking shoes and put in those ear buds because this fresh air will make you feel amazing.
2. Have a Picnic
In the mood to dine out but don’t have the money? Having a picnic changings your regular routine, making it feel fresh and exciting, similar to dining out.
3. Meet at the Nearest Coffee Shop
Bring friends and a few dollars for coffee or tea.
4. Read a Book
Visit your school or public library and immerse yourself in a good mystery novel.
5. Rent a movie
Renting a movie only costs a few dollars and if you’re with friends, they can help front the cost. Better yet, if you frequently want to watch movies and TV shows, Netflix is even better than renting.
6. Play a Board Game
If you or a friend has board games, now would be a great time to play them. Not only is it free but you can spend time with another person or with many.
7. Make Something
DIY projects sometimes require items you no longer use either around your house or in your dorm. Search the internet or your own imagination and create items into something useful again.
If all else fails, catch up on some school work or if your professors have given you an itinerary for the full semester, start completing work for the following week.
