20 Deals Every UND Student Should Know

As broke college students, we need every penny we can get.


Let’s be real, every college student is trying to save money wherever they can. Whether they are saving money because they are a broke college kid like the rest of campus, have bills to pay and are on a budget, are saving for a trip, or simply saving money so you can spend it on other things, we all are trying to save one penny at a time.

Being that Grand Forks really isn’t that exciting of a town, every college student is spending their money on one thing: alcohol. Alcohol seems to be a necessity to college students, especially here when there is not much to do.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally.
