If you are a new student, this will be your bible, a list of books and places to know as well as cheap deals and jobs to get you your meals!
Being a student it’s new, fighting, scary and AWESOME! Your own time to embrace independence is a chance for parents to sit back and think… “Yap they will come running home.” You have the best years of your lives, meet your greatest peeps and have memories that you will cherish forever.
But it’s not cheap… and life sucks when you’re broke, need help, advice and sometimes those meals that appear on the table or clean ironed clothes that appear on your bed. (Yeah, give it 2 months, and you will forget what iron is…) Here is a list of resources to what you need and where to get the awesome deals and student details!
