Yes, you can also tap an app to do your laundry, mail packages and have someone walk your dog. But with convenience, there always comes a price,...

Should You Get A Part-Time Student Job?

[ad_1] College – it was the best of times, it was the worst of times. My university experience, like so many others, was a cocktail of stress, fun and every emotion on the spectrum. The highs far outweighed the lows, but I can still vividly remember the pain of  failing a test or having to pull an all-nighter. It’s a time where so much is expected of you, with so little guidance on how to stay on top of it all. If you add a part-time job on top of that, it can be a recipe for disaster. But working through your college...

College Students: Here are The Biggest Financial Mistakes You Need to Avoid

[ad_1] Slipping up while in college is basically a rite of passage. I made so many mistakes at Indiana University – many of which I would never admit publicly – that reminiscing on my college years comes with a heavy dose of embarrassment. Thankfully, most mistakes made while at university are temporary. They may have short-term consequences, but drinking tickets and dorm infractions don’t tend to follow you into adult life. Financial mistakes, on the other hand, can be a little stickier. College may seem like a safe little bubble, but money is still money. The cash you blow on parties and...
