Quick Ways to Earn Christmas Cash

It’s that time of the year when college students look forward to heading home and relaxing for a few weeks. Months of eating at the campus dining hall will be replaced with home-cooked meals, and long nights of studying will be swapped for Netflix marathons. But, it won’t be long before the spring semester arrives along with those college tuition bills. Thankfully, this is a perfect time for students to earn a little extra cash to help buy holiday gifts or save up for those impending college expenses. Sure, students could get a job at a local restaurant or even a retail store, but holiday shoppers aren’t always in the best of moods. For those looking to earn some cash over winter break, and still find time to have some fun, we suggest heading over to Unigo.com.

It’s a Scholarship Twitter Party!

Last week, I was honored to be the guest ‘tweeter’ on #CampusChat hosted by Smart College Visit and scholarship expert Monica Matthews.

She is also the author of “How to Win College Scholarships.” If you missed our fast and furious scholarship Twitter chat, don’t worry. I have compiled all the questions and some of the best responses right here. Enjoy!

Have you been following the Michael Brown case? Of course you have. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s nearly impossible not to see something about it on television or social media. Many people are upset with the Grand Jury’s decision not to indict, but there are also those who have read the evidence and agree with the findings. Unfortunately, some have turned to violence and crime to express their frustration, which is not a constructive way to start a dialogue or bring about change. There is, however, a more creative (and safe) environment for you to defend your position, whether it is for or against the Grand Jury’s decision.
