LIST: Save big on food, movie and museum tickets with student discounts

It happened again. Your college roommate riffled through your side of the dorm and demolished your last ramen pack. Barbaric.

So what does that mean for you? An evening resigned to an offensively air-conditioned dining hall of course! 

Now, only one ghastly decision left: soggy cafeteria pizza or questionable casserole?

But is that really your only option? Sure, college is expensive, and the last thing you want to do is shell out your remaining dollars for an unsatisfying campus meal. That will undoubtedly thwart your weekend plans: making memories that last a lifetime.
