This Hidden Gem of America is Right Under Your Nose
It's Fall in Athens, Ohio. College green is filled with burnt leaves and happy students. It's time for Ohio University Homecoming and Halloween festivities on the bricks. There are many reasons why students love campus in the Fall. But there's only one Fall ritual no one disagrees with... NFL Sunday.
Ohio University Business Cluster Students are known for spending late night's in Alden and ordering food to the library to save time. All this eating out can add up. Here are five of the hottest deals on Court Street that are sure to fill you up while saving you some cash!
The Wendy’s 4 for 4 was made specifically for college students who are broke, hungry and in a hurry. For only $4 you can stuff yourself with loads of fried deliciousness. This deal comes with a drink, sandwich of your choice (Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger, Crispy Chicken BLT or Double Stack), chicken nuggets and fries! You can also treat yourself after all of your hard work by substituting the drink for a delicious chocolate frosty.
Not only are you saving cash, you’re saving time. Wendy’s prime location is extremely convenient for students grinding out business reports at ~Club Alden~ or Copeland. Wendy’s on Court is open late which is ideal for any Cluster student. The best part about this is that Wendy’s usually has your food out within seconds (it is called fast food).
Clusterf$#% rates this deal as the best bang for your buck due to the low price, large amount of food and quick service.
However, one thing that the majority of college students can say they all do is procrastinate. This procrastination can put a damper on many things, but it mostly ruins perfectly good Sundays.
As the former #1 Party School in the country, Athens Ohio residents and guests have quite the reputation for music, drinking, and having a good time. This is seen most clearly in the annual Athens Fest Season, a period in the Spring months with weekly street parties and festivals in and around the Athens area.
The Fest Season in Athens is one of its many claims to fame, and has been covered locally and nationally for years. Check out these resources for info and best practices for the events:
To have a healthy night out on Court Street is very difficult to do. Some would say that it is impossible. I would agree with those people, but there may be some alternatives to a night on the town. Not that it is extremely healthy but it could easiliy save you a few bucks and you could feel better the morning after. These two startegies help me get through the night financially and socially. Many people go with these approaches too, as it works well for them and was big before spring break came.
We all know and love Court St., since freshman year, that is where most of us wanted to be on a Friday night, or Thursday, or Wednesday... probably Sunday as well. But if you're a senior and you've partaken in your fair share of shuffles you're probably feeling that there has to be more than just Court St. I'm glad to say that there are more options, in fact there are 4 very good options that are still within walking distance of where you might live.
