  • Check your bank account at least once a day to keep track of spending, withdrawals and deposits. Most banks now have mobile apps to make it easier.

  • College can get stressful, so it’s best to plan time for yourself or with friends. There are places to visit in Columbia, or you can watch Netflix with friends. Whatever you enjoy doing, fit it into your schedule.
