5 Fun Summer Activities That Won’t Break the Bank

It’s summer time! This is my favorite time of the year because…drum roll please… there aren’t any classes! That’s right; school is out and you have three glorious months to do whatever you please. Isn’t it fantastic?

It’s absolutely wonderful until about three weeks into it, when you’ve slept in late every morning, lounged around in your pajamas all day, and caught up on all of your favorite television shows. Then, summer time can become a little boring.

Luckily, we’ve come up with a list of fun things you can do this summer to keep yourself entertained without breaking the bank. Here’s our list of the top five summer activities to make your summer as much fun as it possibly can be.

1. Start a book club with your friends. There are other books out there besides just textbooks.

Why it’s fun: You get to pick a few fun books to read with your friends, instead of slaving over a textbook and comparing notes over those readings. You’ll get to see your friends on a weekly basis and have something more interesting to talk about than which Kardashian sister has the best clothes.

How to keep it budget-friendly: Borrow books from your local library. You can also check out garage sales and second-hand book stores, which often sell books for as low as $0.50. Read the rest of this entry »

Groupon Offers College Tuition at a 60 Percent Discount

I love Groupon! It always surprises me how many awesome deals I can get on there. I’ve gotten deals on spa days, clothing stores, and many other things, but I never would have thought I would see a college education as the daily deal.

National Louis University is the first school in the USA to offer a discount on tuition via Groupon. The discount will reduce the cost for an three-credit introductory class in the school’s graduate teaching program from $2,232 to only $950. This is nearly 60 percent off the normal tuition price. The deal will be open to up to 25 buyers and will tip when there are 15 buyers.

“There are all kinds of factors in the K-12 world that are really discouraging teachers and people seeking teaching degrees,” said Jocelyn Zivin, VP of marketing and communications for the school. She hopes that this deal will help students “understand what the realities are, whether you are committed to this profession… and see if you have what it takes.”
