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.
Here are 20 deals every UND student should utilize during their time in Grand Forks.
