Side Hustles for College Students

Here are some ways to organize side hustles in addition to classes or other jobs!

Side Hustles for College Students

Let's face it, a typical 9-5 job is not possible in the midst of juggling classes, clubs, societies, and social life. Still, most college students could use extra cash that can be earned on their own time. Here is a thought bubble of suggestions.



We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Use your best subject to help out someone else! If anyone seems behind in a class you're doing well in, try your best to help them out at an affordable price.

Freelance Art


How many frat boys will need a tattoo designed? How many clubs will need a new logo, shirt design, or flyer made? If you're artistic and look in the right places, you can find many streams of income while having fun.

Ride Shares


Not everyone will have a car on campus. Furthermore, there are some times when parking may not be worth the hassle to events. Driving for a ride share is a job that you can turn off and on at your leisure and still make money.

Sell Tasks


Even in college, life is still going on outside of the books. Many people will, at least one point in the semester, be willing to pay for laundry or a dorm cleaning. Also, depending on local events, learning to do other's hair or nails every will can cause a constant stream of income. Birthdays, in addition to parties, football games, and other events and festivals, people will be feeling the need to look their best.

Food Delivery


If a group of hungry college kids are studying, which kid will go get everyone food? No one wants to miss out on the studying for a while, or even just fun conversation, to go supply everyone else food in the middle of an impromptu meeting. Food delivery will always be needed. Furthermore, a car is not always necessary for this service. Many deliver on bikes, scooters, and even skateboards. Bringing a meal on any wheels is a service most in college will be willing to pay for.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
