    There are a number of places throughout town that offer student discounts, take advantage! Learn how to save and try not to binge. You'll be tempted to and then regret it later.

    A very affordable college, lots of options for degrees and a good education. Ranking very high, NMSU has a lot to offer, and I think it often gets overlooked because it is a state school, but it is really is a great university. It's a good way to get a great undergrad without burying yourself in student loans before you're 25.
