Take advantage of the student discounts on M Street
M Street has a ton of awesome stores and most of those stores offer awesome student discounts. Be sure to check out JCrew and Club Monaco and have your student ID ready!
Eat at Leo’s
While it can be nice to have a meal outside of the cafeteria every once and a while, Leo’s meals are fully included on your meal plan. Since they are prepaid, it’s a great way to save money and socialize!
Instead of spending money on an uber or a cab, take in the early fall air and walk! Georgetown is a beautiful city and you get in exercise without having to see anyone you know in Yates!
Einstein’s Coffee > Starbucks
Not only does Einstein’s offer great bagels and sandwiches for a meal swipe, but they also have delicious iced coffee. Instead of spending money at Starbucks or Saxby’s you can save by using a meal swipe for your morning caffeine fix!
