If you’re a broke-ass, college student, chances are you’ve done some sketchy stuff to save cash. Stuff like: eating top ramen every morning, hitting up friends for gas money and wearing the same smelly clothes over and over. And there’s no time for work with 18 units a semester. But there is a way out. David Alvareeezy, and his blue-eyed friend Jorgie, share a secret to get you an upgrade from the 99 Cents Only Store to Dollar Tree. Hello, FAFSA.

When I started college, I couldn’t have imagined the challenges I was going to face. College is a learning process in every way possible; it would’ve helped to know what I was really getting into. Here are the things I wish someone told me before my first day.
Professors can be scary, but don’t fret, they don’t bite. Building a relationship with professors could result in a letter of recommendation for your dream job, a job referral or advice to kick-start your career.
Broke college students should NEVER say no to free food. Take advantage of events with free food such as workshops, club meetings or info sessions where you can feed your tummy and mind at the same time.
Your dorm or apartment will become your safe space in college. Rooming with your friends isn’t like your childhood sleepovers. Often, personalities aren’t as compatible in close living quarters. Choose your housemates carefully.
