These days, it’s really hard to be a college student. You pay so much money in tuition, books, rent, and fees that it’s easy to run out of money and not have enough for food. With the student loan crisis looming in the United States, it’s the students who are shelling out everything they’ve got to go to college and still don’t have enough money to get by (and usually have loans to pay back on top of that). It’s a real problem! Here are 15 tragic confessions from college students who are truly broke.
1. Costco has free samples
This student isn’t the only one who peruses the aisles of Costco, pretending to shop while really sampling all the food vendors once or twice…or maybe even three times.
2. Some resort to theft
We sure hope this student doesn’t get caught and then expelled for shoplifting. But if its their only way to make a few bucks, we can’t really blame them. The bookstores mark the prices up way too high on books anyway.
