    There are always activities happening on campus and when you attend you can get things like school supplies, free food, or even spirit wear. take advantage of free things, cause college is expensive! Also, in the SGA office, they give out free school supplies including scantrons and bluebooks!

    Buying books at the school will cost a ton so be smart and write down all of the ISBN numbers which can be found on the back or front of your textbooks and its the number that starts with 978 on the barcode looking part. Search for them online and you will have all that money to SAVE. This university is really half the cost of the main campus and about a fourth of the cost of a university out of the city but it is worth saving the money if you can find your major at UHD and graduate or stay here for a couple years until you transfer.
