Being broke on campus is never ever fun. And it’s not always the easiest to earn some cash on the side to supplement your income. So go through this list of money-making ideas and pick out the ones you think you can use to put that extra cash in your pocket.

Getting A Stand At A Hall Week

Getting a stand is an investment. If you don’t make your money back then you would have lost cash and put in work for no reason. A fun idea to explore is partnering with a friend so you basically have two businesses under one stand. For example; a game booth with a bar. And that’s a combination that’s golden.

Selling On Social Media

You’ll usually find people selling all kinds of different things on campus. Although most of the time it is clothes they’re selling. Selling these items on behalf of those other people can put some cash in your pocket, especially if you have a large social media following. Then you’re barely doing any work and still getting that mulah.

Freelancing while you’re on campus is also a great way to make money. You just need to be able to find clients for whatever skill it is that you have. A good place to start is sending DMs to people on social media that you think you can help with your skills. In that case, you’ll also need a portfolio which could just as easily be your Instagram page with your work.

Part-Time Work

Getting a part-time job requires some effort on your part. What you’re actually looking for are paid internships during your vacations and remote work that you can do while you’re in school. A great place you can start looking is your school’s guidance and counselling centre.
