College Entertainment for Less
Most of these activities are free or very cheap:
* Campus music or dance recitals
* College theater productions
* Guest speakers
* Poetry readings
* Museum tours
* Sports-either participate or go route for your school
* Film and video showings
* Art openings
* Clubs on campus
If you are looking to stray away from campus here are some off campus fun frugal ideas:
* Go watch a local band, they usually play at bars but the cover is usually $5-$10 to sit and enjoy and be in a sociable setting
* Go to the movies, catch the matinee film during the day when prices are less expensive
* Explore natural parks or recreation facilities where you can work out or simply enjoy the surrounding
* If you have a pool in your apartment complex or have friends that do, gather round and soak up the rays and have some fun.
* If you are in cold climates, go sledding in the wintertime, it's an activity that you're never too old for.
* Find a new hobby
Of course those are all inexpensive ways to have fun but if you like the social gatherings of being around your friends which means going out to eat, going to new clubs, and so forth, here are a view tips to save on some cash.
* If going out to eat with friends, snack on something before hand so your meal wont be as expensive because you wont be as hungry. Stay away from drinks and desserts because prices will be jacked up.
* Go to bars or clubs where the cover is free. If of age, limit yourself on drinks, and find out about the specials.
* Swap clothes with friends instead of shopping for new ones that you may only where once depending on the occasion.
* Choose to be the designated driver so wont be spending money on drinks and know everyone will get home safely.
* Don't go out every night of the week. Remember you do still have class to attend to. So if planning to go out, choose one night to go out and make the other a low key night such as making it a blockbuster night or picking up where you left off in the book you were reading.
College is about having fun but also getting an education so don't let the fun experiences get the best of you and forget why you are where you are. If you get an A then it's a for sure reason to go out and have some fun. Set goals for yourself and once you achieve them, give yourself credit!

I always dreamed of going to school and getting a degree in something I'd love to do. I had plenty of dreams, and I wanted to pursue them. With working most of your life, going to school would have to be a very big sacrifice, especially if you have a husband or children to handle. I could have entered school when I was younger, but the demands of working, marriage, and children took precedent over my life. Also, there's no energy left after you deal with the domestic part of your life. You have enough power of energy to get into bed, and hopefully sleep until you get up tomorrow and follow the same tedious pattern all over again. Going to school to educate myself onto a professional level of expertise; to do something more enjoyable for myself, had to be on the back burner of my school dreams; I had other priorities to worry about. Fortunately, school was never far from my mind or brain, and it constantly nagged me like a bad hair day, or a migraine headache waiting to harm me to the end of my rope. If something is truly meant for you to accomplish, then there's no stopping that road to that path. At one point in my life, I was contented. I knew when the right time presented itself, I was going to school. The right time came when I was in my forties, believe it or not. Also, remember that you're never too old to go back to school. School is for anyone and everyone, and age is just a number which doesn't matter at all. Can you handle it mentally and physically is the answer?

Distance Learning Degree Program ? How to Study
The format of distance learning courses is different than what most students have experienced. The teaching style is more student directed and you will have to become accustomed to these differences.

Look for classes or workshops on computers and the internet. These are often available in public libraries or community centers. You may feel overwhelmed at the thought of taking another class, but the time you spend learning to use the technology will save you time in the long run.

Why Study the Flows of Civilization?
