If you're looking for ways to save money at school, why not become a resident assistant? RAs are generally given free room and board in exchange for planning programs for other residents on their floor, helping solve any problems, and just being someone their residents can talk to. So if you are outgoing, enjoy helping others out, and don't mind doing rounds during the middle of the night a couple of days each month, look into becoming a resident assistant. Also, if you career goal is to work for a university, being an RA is a good first step and would look great on a resume.
I did this to help with my summer expenses, fun but can be stressful! Sometimes you'll plan projects for a wide range of people, and it can really help your skills in organization and planning...and free board!
