Special shoutout to all the new college students out there! Anyone starting up their first quarter now or in the next month, welcome to college and I wish you the best. I just wanted to give a couple college mtg reminders:
If you moved to a new town for college, find your closest shop with Wizard’s locator and get involved! College is the time to meet new people, so get started.
Amazon gives college students 6 free months of prime (aka free 2 day shipping and video streaming), so get your Magic cards cheaper or more realistically all the stuff you didn’t realize you’d need now that you’re on your own.
Not magic related, but don’t buy books from your campus bookstore. The entire textbook setup is a monopoly and rip off (your school gets paid to tell you to go buy that $120 calculus book), you can find them used online or a PDF. Ask your professors if an older version of the book is okay, because it usually is and at 10% the price.
Have fun, but don’t forget that you’re there to learn and study. Run the math for yourself, but for my in state fees I calculated that I was paying $20 per 2 hour lecture. May as well go if you’re paying for it…
