What To Do Around Florida State University When You’re Broke AF

Whether you’re trying to save up or just awaiting that next pay check everyone’s been that broke college student cliché at least once, but who’s to say that has to prevent you from finding something fun to do? Dollar ramen and Netflix are not your only options, I promise. Here’s a few budget-friendly places around Florida State University that prove it:

First Fridays

A staple around Florida State University, the first Friday of every month head out to Railroad Square for some electric vintage shopping (or window shopping), free live music, and cheap food truck eats that do not disappoint (shepherd’s pie sandwich? I think yes.). There’s plenty to do, plenty to see, and more important than that plenty to eat; it’s free to enter and with cheap food options this is a haven for college students on a budget.

All Saints Cinema

A theater built inside the old Amtrak station, All Saints Cinema features award winning indie films, and old school classics cheaper than the local theater and with a much more original setting. The best part being the popcorn and snacks are half the price of the ridiculous regular theater prices, it’s about time. As an added bonus you’re also supporting a local Tallahassee business and your local arts!

Market on Saturdays

If you’re in the mood for some fresh food without the Whole Foods prices, the local market every Saturday and Tuesday mornings features local vendors selling mass amounts of fresh fruits and veggies. All locally sourced it’s a great place to get to know the community and gives you some motivation to wake up and walk around in the mornings.

Free FSU Sports (of any kind!)

Don’t restrict yourself to only football season, all games are free to FSU students watch your Seminole tennis or softball teams! As long as there’s an FSU team to root for, grab a group of people and show some school spirit. Plus, you get points at every sporting event you check-in at which add up to free FSU gear at the bookstore, plus FREE entry; it’s a win-win.
