Average Budget for a College Student

Adding discretionary spending subtracts mucho dinero from wallets everywhere. And that is exactly the grand lifestyle of the average college student!

Looking for breakdowns of how typical college students spend their own money, I found that 40% of their spending goes towards recreational purposes while 49% of the students surveyed have a part-time job, garnering their own income. Students attending college in New York City most likely hold a higher percentage in that area.

In this infographic, studies done by Westwood College demonstrate one of life’s greatest mantras: work hard, party harder! (Click on the image for a larger view.)

  1. Interesting! Would not have guessed that 49% of students have a part-time job. Also, I wish I received on average of $ 312 a month from my family! 😉

  3. If you’re dealing with a company that says they will do this, contact your state’s attorney general office to find out if a debt solution
    company located and licensed to operate in your state can legally do this, and even if they
    can – don’t do it. The search word being promoted by the SEO services should be relevant to the websites theme,
    only then it is considered Ethical SEO services. A professional firm
    can work with your company’s budget to provide it with successful and ethical search engine optimization
    techniques to increase the site’s page rank.
