So, how does one deftly circumvent one of the biggest pitfalls in the wild world of competitive companionship, you ask?

Having a Car in College: Is it Worthwhile?

In one word: no

Most college students see their first foray into the real world as a long-awaited bid for freedom.

Your college years will likely be some of the best in your life. Between getting away from your parents for the first time in your life (finally having the space to figure out who you really are), expanding your mind, preparing for your professional future, and meeting new people who could potentially become lifelong friends, business partners, or soul-mates, you have a lot of doors opening to you.

But while you’re busy taking advantage of the many social and academic opportunities before you, it’s all too easy to neglect your health, especially if you’re spread thin between studying and partying (as are most students).
