Life on a college budget can be pretty restrictive- and there are plenty of us that can attest to that. It’s about time we start giving the kids the deals they deserve- I mean it’s already bad enough they’re inundated with bills AND homework. 😉 We’ve scoured Western New York for businesses offering student discounts, so you can take full advantage of your status (bc every college student needs a little pick-me-up). But honestly, can we just take a moment to recognize these businesses with a round of applause for offering these discounts?!
