Green Bay, WI
Major:  Business Marketing

A:  I have two jobs and use much of that money for grocery shopping, gas money, and entertainment- like going to see a movie, or going to a concert. And of course there’s shopping.

Hortonville, WI
Major:  Music 

A:  Most of the money I have for spending goes to things I run out of.  For example, shampoo, toilet paper, etc.

Kaukauna, WI
Major:  Religious Studies & Spanish

A:  Most of my spending money goes to buying pizza every now and then.  Also when I run out of meal dollars on my ID I spend my money at Wingra.  I tend not to spend a lot of my money because I don’t go off campus for “expensive stuff.”  When I leave campus I take the bus, which is free. Then I will go to the mall or to State Street, but I usually don’t buy anything.

Barneveld, WI
Major:  Business-Management and Art 

A:  All the money I spend is what I make at work. Most of it goes toward gas to drive to and from Madison. Otherwise I’m trying to save so I can afford summer classes and a trip this year. If I have extra money, I do like to spend it on clothes.

Blanchardville, WI
Major:  Business (concentration-accounting)

A:  Since I work and drive places a lot, I spend quite a bit on gas. Otherwise it’s the occasional shopping trips that I spend money but these trips are once in about four months.  I try to save as much money as I can knowing that I have to help pay for school.  I don’t use much money for on campus things because I use my ID card for food.   

Appleton, WI
Major:  Spanish & Communication Studies
Minor:  Global Education

A:  Obviously, I contribute to tuition.  But for fun I spend money on renting movies, trips to Chicago, the ever present grocery bill/going out to eat, and tickets to plays or movies.  I try not to buy clothes I don’t need, so that is a good way to save money for me. 

Wisconsin Dells, WI
Major:  Deciding (Possibly Communications)

A:  FOOD! Mom and Dad are no longer there to stock your cupboards. For me, food is such a comfort thing. I love having what I had at home at hand when I might be having a bad day or just need to take a step back from studying.
