- The Boston Globe has checking account tips for college students. It's some solid advice on setting up your new money management system to avoid fees. Boston is chock full of college students so hopefully this advice gets some good use.
- Daily Finance has changed another old trend to new with their article title: The New Freshman 15: Financial Tips for College Students. It could easily be titled "how to avoid debt and get ahead financially while in college" but that wouldn't be nearly as catchy.
- The Consumerist (I guess this shouldn't be a surprise) gives advice on Setting And Staying On A Budget In College.
- The Street also got in on the action, but it read an awful lot like a paid guest post for LowCards. Not the best advice.
- Salisbury Post advises parents on how to advise their kids to keep their budgets under control. It hits all the big expense areas from textbooks to entertainment.
If you're a student headed to college (or a parent of one), you're welcome for all the information. For everyone else, is this a sign that college students' debt has gotten to a crisis point or just that it's been a buzz topic in the news lately?
