Deciding to go away for college was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. During my college journey, I have met tons of cool ass people, traveled to places I’ve never thought I would, and have become more self sufficient in the process.
College is great, but it is also HELLA expensive so learning how to save money is a must! I am going to plug y’all with some local spots that offer student discounts and will help you be a frugal college student.
OAKLAND MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA
1000 Oak St
Oakland, CA 94607 b/t 11th St & 10th St

If you are ever bored on a weekday and happen to be in Oakland, make sure to drop by the OMOC where you will see some really cool exhibits and perhaps learn something new.
NAMASTE YOGA & WELLNESS

Ain’t no better way to calm your spirit then the sound of the African Drum. Kiazi Malonga teaches Congolese Dance Saturday afternoons (1-2:30pm) and Monday nights (7:30-9pm). Trust me when I say it is an experience. Come see for yourself.
GRAND LAKE THEATER

Well this one is not really a student discount, but I wanted to include it anyway.
TARA’S ORGANIC ICE CREAM
