To guys who are wondering:
-600+ for a parking permit
-Insurance goes up cuz you lose multi car discount
-You save money by not having to pay for gas, washes, maintenance, etc
I really wanna take my baby too, but it may not happen. We'll see with me.
I am at UNCC, one of the few schools that actually lets their students keep cars their freshman year.
parking also is a heck of a lot less here. $280 to park. Gas prices are about $2.70 here. So its not that bad.
However, if your not working, and your not getting any help from your parents. Having a car in college is a huge burdon on your financial situation.
Meal Plan- $1000 even
hosuing- way too much.
tuition- $8,500 a year
I am lucky though. My grandparents offered to pay for all my tuition and housing. My parents picked up my meal plan fees. I am just paying for books and my car.
could be worse?
