A lot of college students worry about finances. Budgeting, and being aware of how to spend money can be difficult, especially when you are a young college student experiencing freedom and being independent for the first time.

I’ve been very fortunate that my parents have paid for me to go to college. I’ve helped them out a little by winning a few scholarships over the years. I’ve found that it’s helpful to visit: http://www.morrisville.edu/financial_aid/awards.aspx and apply to those scholarships.

Even though I don’t have to worry about tuition, I still need to work on savings and my own spending money. To do that, I got a job at Dunkin Donuts the summer after my first year of college. I took all of the hours I could and watched my savings grow. When it was time to go back to school, I left to focus on my schoolwork. But when I’m home for breaks I work at Dunkin Donuts.

There’s also various campus jobs available that I hadn’t looked into until my last year. Last semester, I spent about 5 hours a week being a peer mentor towards exchange students in their freshman year. While this semester I spend 5 hours a week doing student blogging. Both of these jobs have worked out perfect for me because I was looking to make a little bit of spending money without having something too time demanding. However, for students who are looking for more hours, there are other campus jobs out there. More information about working on campus can be found at: http://www.morrisville.edu/careerservices/on-campus-employment.aspx.
