Cheap (Or free) ways to get the most out of summer break!

1) Get into the great outdoors

Whether it be a local park, lake or hiking trail: get out there and make the most of the sunshine!

2) Stop by local flea markets/garage sales

You never know what kind of treasures you can find, and it’s a cheap way to furnish your home for the following year!

3) Attend summer fairs and festivals

Check your local listings on free events or concerts coming to your town. It’s a great way to try some new eats while taking in some live music!

4) Take a road trip with your friend

Now is the perfect time to jump in that car and do a little exploring! Visit an old friend, head to a museum, go camping, the options are endless!

5) Check for student discount events.

Many movie theaters, sports teams, and businesses have “College nights” where you can get great discounts for showing your student id.

6) Beef up your resume

Summer is a great time to add some bullet points to that resume whether it be through interning, job shadowing, or volunteering for a cause that is important to you.

7) Get active

Use your free time to take care of your body and get in some exercise! Try something new like spinning or Pilates, join a local sports team, go golfing or bike riding. Set goals that motivate you like signing up for 5K! For extra motivation, have a friend join you!
