College life can be demanding not just academically but financially. Most students who come to college realize that surviving on the stipends that they receive from their parents is extremely hard if not impossible. As such, it’s important that students during their time at college do find a side hustle to engage in so as to earn some extra cash which will help them to keep afloat financially. It is against this background that we have decided to write this article sharing with all students some key side hustles that they can engage in during their time at college.
Online gambling is one of the easiest and also cheapest side hustles that one can engage in at college. The beauty of online gambling is that it suits almost everyone. For those who like gambling whilst playing casino games, they can simply access online casinos and play their favourite games. Sports fanatics can also log on to sportsbooks and place bets on their favourite sports. Even those who are into stuff such as economics, politics, and entertainment news can also place their bets on different betting markets in the novelty betting section offered by select online casinos including NetBet.
When one reaches college level, it means that he or she is adept in either one or more subjects. As such, one’s knowledge in a particular subject can be transformed into cash thanks to online tutoring. Students looking to venture into online tutoring can browse the internet to search for online tutoring websites where they can start selling their skills.
Become a Research Assistant
Another great way to earn some extra cash at college is to become a research assistant. Becoming a research assistant is basically becoming your professor’s ‘pet’. You will do a lot of running looking for all sorts of stuff (mostly books and journals) but you will discover that the whole thing is worthwhile as you get to learn research skills while at the same time earning some extra cash!
Working for Campus Security
Working for campus security is also another great way to make some extra cash while at college. The ‘job’ may seem odd or unfashionable for some but if you are really in the hunt for some money, then you ought to take the job. The beauty of working for campus security is that you can negotiate flexible working hours with the security top brass. Working flexible hours, you will have time to focus on your studies and at the same time, you will have time to make some money.
Rent your Apartment
For the fortunate ones who happen to live near the campus, you can actually engage in the sharing economy model and share your apartment/room with other students, the money you get from living with other students will better be used in sourcing for academic stuff that you will normally be not able to acquire on your own with limited financial resources. If you have a car, you will also be able to partake in another sharing economy service i.e. Uber driving, taking fellow students to and from campus.
