    the most expensive thing would be the textbooks but there are plenty of students who are willing to self their used textbooks. some classes dont use most of the book so if you find someone who is willing to share their book or even photo copy pages for you you should be fine.

    - Yes, you can find your recommendation letters for scholarships. If you want to work in campus, they do have jobs for you. Go find one. They pay good salary and you don't have to travel far. Use your free time between classes.
