The Trailblazer Staff

It’s completely normal to want to save money as a college student. Most of us struggle with experiences and find ourselves stressed over costs. Many companies and businesses want to help college students like ourselves with these finances. There are so many discount opportunities to receive when you’re a student. The Trailblazer put together a list of different restaurants, companies, and subscriptions that offer discounts and low pricing for students. VU students can find your student email in your MyVU account under ‘Contact Information, etc:’ then click on the ‘Need a .edu email address’ link or request one.
