Here’s some interesting food for thought about college students. [Pun intended. 🙂 ]
According to a recent article by eMarketer:
“Everyone knows the common tale of the broke college kid surviving the semester on a steady diet of instant noodles, but according to research, nearly all college students take a break from their ramen at least once a month to eat out at a restaurant.”
“July 2014 polling by Shweiki Media and Study Breaks found that 99% of U.S. college students spent money at restaurants at least once per month. Seven out of 10 reported that they spent money at a bar on a monthly basis. A significant portion of these students were also allocating funds toward trips and travel, with 87% stating that they spent money on this at least once a month. 45% of the students polled said their parents were their main source of income; 40% said they got their spending money by working; and 15% of the students relied on loans.”
