About

this guy’s a mind reader

Living on a strict ramen noodle diet? Are you on a first-name basis with employees at the neighborhood blood plasma center? When people on campus talk about the day that will live in infamy, are they referring to your legendary 2010 meltdown at the ATM? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Okay perhaps I’m a being a bit over-dramatic.

College is expensive. There is no getting around that. So if you can actually relate to the first paragraph or simply wish to stretch your dollar a little further, the Economic Academic is here to help. It’s my goal through this blog to aid cash-strapped coeds in their quest to find the best in fun, fashion and food all while on a shoe-string budget.

About Me:

I’m Carolyn, a senior in college, living in NYC trying to get the most out of the city without taking the most out of my bank account. But enough trivial matter, here is what you really need to know:

~Because of me, “The Essential Billy Joel” CD is banned in my home. Forever.

~I don’t swim in indoor pools because of an episode of “Are you Afraid of the Dark”.

~I was the vice-president of my 4th grade class.

~My favorite jello flavor is strawberry.

~My celebrity crush is Fox Mulder circa ’97. And no I’m not talking about Duchovny. There’s a difference.

    THIS IS GREATTT! I have an unhealthy relationship with clothes, food, and alcohol, but my one serious addiction is spending money!!! This is a great blog for any starving college student! Keep writing girl! I’m definitely coming back! xo

  2. Great blog! Wish I had this in college – its unfortunate that many students leave college with tons of personal debt and students loans. Academics are great, but budgeting and understanding economics is a valuable skill. Kudos to you!

    • Thank you so much for visiting! I’m glad you like it! It is so sad how expensive college is these days, and I wish more offered personal finance courses because knowing how to manage your money early is essential when you’re just starting out.
