You don’t have to look far to find fun in college. If you want to budget for your student housing, you need to be deliberate about how much money you spend on social activities every month. Endless happy hours, frequent partying, and other expensive activities can quickly run you dry. Plan your social activities at the start of each month, or each week, so you can keep track of your spending. Your university likely sponsors lots of fun student activities that you can attend at little or no cost.
