A dollar saved is a dollar spent to pay off future student loans
It’s the middle of fall semester and it’s that time of year again when the temperature drops and the motivation you had to cook for yourself begins to wane. Continuously buying snacks at the gas station, getting food to go from the Memorial Union, and being constantly fueled by coffee can take a toll on the bank account. After all, We’re college students and saving money is a priority especially when you think about the rent you have to pay at the end of the month.
Next time you find yourself walking around campus hungry, keep these happy hour / specials in mind.
Coffee Shops on Campus
The Minard Coffee Shop offers a happy hour from 2-4 p.m. with 50 percent off cold drinks and pastries. (This is your permission to eat all the leftover Sandy’s donuts from the morning).
Memorial Union Coffee Shop offers happy hour from 4 p.m.-close with 50 percent off cold drinks and pastries. Another deal that is currently going on is from 2-4 p.m. if you purchase a Spunkmeyer cookie (0.75 cents) you get a free 4 oz. coffee with it.
If you’ve walked into the Memorial Union lately, I’ll be truly surprised if you haven’t seen the bright orange twisted taco advertisements for their happy hour yet. But, if you haven’t, they currently are offering $2 tacos from 3-5 p.m. with the options of chicken, beef, tofu or veggies.
They offer a weekly combo special for $5.55 you can get the special of the week, a regular drink and a bag of chips.
If you buy two pieces of pizza (because let’s face it one slice just isn’t enough), you can get 50 cents off a drink.
