20 Things That Will Make Poor College Students Say "I Do That"

Being a poor college student has its downsides but for the most part, you just do what you can. As they say, when the going gets tough...! We have decided to honour our college compadres who are out there fighting the good fight every day but showing the world just what they gots ta do day in, day out:

1. Drink Aldi's Galahad

Sure, it tastes like throw-up but it's so cheap #galalads

2. €5 McDonald's meal deal

It's as easy as flashing your student card

3. Bringing naggins into clubs


Ain't nobody got time for buying drinks at the bar. But the bartenders are definitely on to you.

4. Minimum five goujons

DCU tried to take the goujons away but as every poor college student knows, no one can take away your spirit.

5. Babylon 3-in-1


Is there anything better after a night at Coppers than getting a cheeky 3 in 1 from Babylon?

6. Free pens

There are two types of people in this world: people who take free pens and liars.

7. Free pizza at society meetings


There's only one reason you're here and it's not to find out the calendar dates.

It doesn't always go so well.
