Let’s face it: Commuting to school kind of sucks. Most of us would prefer to live 5 minutes from NC State and not have to worry about expensive parking permits, waiting for your carpool or the WolfLine, or missing out on all the on-campus fun. But with student loans being the way they are, the easiest way to save a ton of money is by living off campus and commuting to class.
The Student Saver is an insider’s guide to surviving college as a commuter student, featuring an actual downloadable commuting guide and a monthly blog about what’s happening on and off campus at NC State.
Whether you’re a new student (and need to know where to park and where to eat) or a returning student (and want to know about cool NC State trivia or all those new apartments on Hillsborough Street), this commuter student guide has something just for you.
