A college budget can seem pretty restrictive- and there are many of us that can attest to that. Which is why we figured we’d pull together this quick guide to share some amazing – mostly caffeine related – student discounts with you from around town. It’s bad enough you have tuition and bills to pay, why not save where you can and explore Buffalo’s good eats. We’ve secured some of the locally owned coffee shops and cafes that want you to save, and all you need is a valid school ID.
