What Do You Need to Have a Good Time as a Student

It’s almost that time again. Some just got their results and found out that they got into college. Some got into a university. Some are starting their last year.

But regardless of who and where we are, we all want to have a good time in college. So what do you need to have a good time?


Student Card at All Times

The biggest problem that students face is not having enough money. Not everyone is lucky enough to afford to pay tuition fees. Most students will be in debt when they finish.

But that doesn’t mean that you should not go out on a date with somebody. It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a coffee in the morning. It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t travel.

“Money won’t buy you happiness.” That’s true. But money will make it easier to do things that will bring you happiness. And when you are a student, you might not have a lot of money, but you can spend a lot less if you are smart about how you spend.

As a student, you have a major advantage. You have a student card that gives you discounts. Travel is always cheaper. Clothing is also more affordable depending on where you shop. If you are smart and inquire or ask about student discounts, you can save a lot of money.

Sites like ASOS provide 10% discounts for students. Shopping with Amazon is always cheaper with a student card too. 

If you are a student, a student card will make your life cheaper. And sometimes it's simply about saving rather than having a lot.

Condoms

While sex statistics differ across countries, a survey done by University College Cork shows that 46% of students had unprotected sex. 10% of the students surveyed stated that they contracted a sexually transmitted infection.  

This shows that condoms are very important in your student life. They can save your life and eliminate a lot of problems that you might have in the future. Certain colleges and universities give condoms away without any cost.

Portable Chargers

Go to a party. Go to a friends house. Notice that your phone is out of battery. How will you get home?  Not everyone has several chargers. Some people barely have a charger that even works. They have to twist the cables to get them to work. And then again, even if they do have a cable, it could not support your phone.

Zendure A8 QC might be useful if you are going somewhere. And as a student, you never really know what is going to happen. 

You might meet someone, and they might change your plans. It comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, so you won't have to charge your phone for too long. And since as a student, you are more likely to be social, it comes with four USB ports. 

If you are looking to have fun as a student, you will probably need a charger. Phones are everything today. They are our means of transport. They are our cameras. They are our form of communication. They are our planners and calendars.

Connections

Technology rocks. Having your phone rocks. Phones are fantastic when you need an Uber or are lost. But you also need to make connections. Without connections, your college life will be terrible. 

So whether you ask someone about where they are going to at a bus stop, or you attend a football game and start talking to somebody, it doesn't matter. You need to go out and talk to people. Stop calling people when you are alone. Start talking to people around you.

Conclusion

You need a bit of everything in order to have a great time as a student. But at the end of the day, it's the friendships that you build that will decide whether you have a good or bad time in college or university. 

So go out and make some friends!
