The list author says: "I am a poor student in college. I have discovered that all school supplies go on sale at one time during the year which is end of summer beginning of fall for a two week period. During that time frame you can significantly save on everything for school. The rest of the year the mark-up is insane like 50 cent packs of paper are four dollars. Also if you buy your books used on Amazon you can save quite a bit. If I start looking at least six months in advance I can find a 200 dollar text book for around 20 dollars. Sweet."
"At a certain point (in science classes) your index cards may number in the thousands. It's not fun to make more then a couple of hundred. I can usually find these or the 4x6 size called "postcards" for about $8 a pack of 200 cards in 50 sheets"
"Some dumb scientists released a study that said college kids aren't learning anything in the first two years. So my college issued an edict that every student write a paper for every class. I am writing papers for my math classes now. Every report that comes in cover gets a better grade."
"labs require you to pull back your hair but you never remember and neither does any of your friends. don't get kicked out of class over it. Another thing to get kicked out of class over is open toes shoes. I tried keeping my nice flats in my trunk but ended up wearing them and not having them when I needed them so maybe those folding shoes as well?"
