A Commuter Student’s Guide to All Things NC State

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 website logoThe 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.

Check us out on social media, too! We post from time to time on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
