Some may have heard of this online resume site but if you haven’t or do not have one yet, do it immediately. This professional social networking site is equivalent to having an online resume. LinkedIn can connect you with professionals and colleagues to help you build connections you possibly can use to your advantage when trying to find a job.

Student ID Discounts

Being a broke college kid can be a struggle, so getting a discount is like finding gold. Being trendy in school on a budget is tough, but when stores like Banana Republic and J.Crew offer discounts for students when presenting their ID, there is no excuse. Not only do clothing stores offer discounts but when ordering online at Target, a 10 percent discount can be applied. There may be stores that offer student discounts that are not advertised, so asking if they offer them can be worth it.

Study Abroad

As much as you would love to be at Bridgewater State 24/7, studying abroad is an opportunity you do not want to miss. If you’re not interested with being in a different country for three months, BSU offers study tours that are two weeks long and just enough experience.

Not going anywhere tropical this Spring Break? No worries, there are other options. Groupon and LivingSocial have many day trips and activities if you are stuck in this New England weather.
