Be Creative With Your Leisure Time: Everyone needs to unwind after studying, and college campuses typically offer all sorts of opportunities — movie theatres, bars, cafes, arts centres, parks, downtown shopping centres, et cetera.

If you make the right choices and use a bit of creativity, you can have fun and save money at the same time.
