Staying on campus for Labor Day weekend? Still have no idea what you’re going to do? We’ve outlined some frugal ideas below!

Go on a fountain run

It’s only going to be warm for a few more weeks! And this way you won’t have to sit through class in soggy clothes.

Walk the trails at one of West Lafayette’s parks or the Celery Bog

Explore a little bit and enjoy the nice weather! Take a friend or two and maybe pack a picnic to enjoy before/after your trek!

Take the bus to Walmart for the first time

You’ve got to try it out sometime…and where else can you stock up on your favorite snacks for cheap? There will be lots of other lost souls on the bus too, so you won’t be alone in your journey!

Do your laundry

Yes it’s only been a week or two…but you know you need to do your laundry. Do it while you have the time, your sock drawer and your future self will thank you.

Get yourself organized for the semester

Pull out your Mortar Board, highlighters, syllabi and post-its and get everything mapped out and planned for your semester. Get your books all organized, set up a file system on your computer, and get all your pencils nice and sharp. This is going to be a great semester!

Hit up Global Fest

Global Fest is a one day, free event at Morton Community Center right off campus happening this year on September 5th. Take some friends and enjoy some cultural entertainment, art and food from all over the globe!

Hit up Mosey Down Main Street

Mosey happens all summer long and will wrap up the summer season with a final event Saturday, September 5th, from 6PM-11PM. Head to Main Street to listen to bands, eat some food, and learn more about Lafayette’s downtown businesses.
