12 Venmo Transactions That Every College Student Knows All Too Well

12 Venmo Transactions That Every College Student Knows All Too Well

You know it too well.


Venmo is probably the best thing that ever happened to college students.

You don't have to take $20 out of an ATM every time you owe someone money or want to do something (which is especially annoying if you don't have a bank in your school's area). Venmo is used for a lot of different transactions, but in college there are certain ones that every single one of you has done.

Like these:

1. Alcohol runs

Literally 80% of Venmo transactions.

2. Pizza

Someone has to take the hit for that midnight delivery.

3. Frozen Yogurt

There's always that one friend that goes ham at the self-serve froyo place and doesn't have enough in their account until payday (guilty).

4. Midnight food runs


5. Gas

Gotta get the cash money for those airport rides, am I right?

6. Uber rides

There's a fee to split rides on Uber. When in doubt, Venmo it out.

7. Impulse Amazon Prime order.

You just ordered enough Pirate Booty for the semester? I'm definitely going to be part of that investment.

8. Movie tickets.

And popcorn.

9. Parent Donations.

Always welcomed.

10. Rent.

Roommates feel this one.

11. Utilities/Internet/Cable/Netflix bill.

And all of these, too.

12. Emergencies.

Someone always loses their wallet.

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals.
