7 Perfect Date Places For All You San Diego Students Living On A Budget

As college students, affordability is a must. As much as we'd like, we can't drop $100 on dates to the zoo or to a fancy restaurant. Instead, here are seven easy and fun date ideas to do close to San Diego State University.

1. Boomers

Ah yes, a childhood landmark. There's still something so fun about competing in mini golf, go-karting or even at batting cages on a date. It doesn't require much skill, or much cash, to go and be a kid again at Boomers.

2. Scooter-riding on the Boardwalk

These electric scooter companies are popping up left and right. One of the best spots to find them is at Mission Beach, especially around the boardwalk area. For just a couple bucks, you and your date can ride all the way to Pacific Beach and back while having a blast.

3. Find a secret swing.

There are hidden swings all over San Diego, including one in La Jolla. You have to work together to find these spots, which is the perfect way to get to know each other. It's free, fun and adventurous.

4. Birch Aquarium

There's nothing like finding Nemo with your date! Birch aquarium offers student discounts for college students and sits right over the beach, so you can make a whole day at the beach a little more exciting.

5. Cowle's Mountain

Hiking Cowle's Mountain is a great way to get to know your date. It's not the most physically demanding hike, so you can still look cute while hiking up the hills. You can see how tough your date is while showing off how strong you are.

6. Drive-in movie

Santee offers drive-in movies everyday of the year. Put blankets and pillows in the back of your car, grab some snacks, and watch a new movie with your partner for less than $20. It's a nice change from the typical movie theater scene and an upgrade from a Netflix night.

7. Bowling

Bowling is a fun way to get to see if your Wii skills are applicable to real life sports. With an ARC membership at San Diego State, you can go bowling on campus for next to nothing. You don't have to talk to your date as much as any most other locations, so if you're shy use this game to build up comfort with your date.

San Diego is an expensive place to live, but it doesn't have to be an expensive place to date. There are many options for taking someone out on a budget and still having a good time!

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
