Jay Z famously had “99 Problems.” Well, if you’re a college student or recent grad, you more likely have #20SomethingProblems.
(And by that, I don’t mean you have approximately 70 fewer problems than Hova.)
Young people face #20SomethingProblems in their hard-knock lives every day. From constant Ramen dinners to living at home long after graduation, these problems are very, very different from those of a millionaire mogul.
If you’re having #20SomethingProblems, you may be up against a dwindling bank account or other financial challenge. And while it may seem like your college years and early-20s are absurdly difficult and full of drama, you’re supposed to have fun during this time—yes, even if you’re facing a big issue like student debt.
That’s where SALT™ comes in.
Step Right Up To Our Carnival!
This month, SALT is bringing The Carnival Of #20SomethingProblems to events and campuses around New England. We’re kicking things off this Saturday and Sunday, October 12 and 13, as the presenting sponsor of CollegeFest!
Located at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, CollegeFest is a 2-day event that hosts more than 100 local and national sponsors and features live music, celebrity appearances, and free swag. Doors open at noon on both days, and if you don’t have tickets yet, use promo code “SALT” for $5 off.
Our carnival will give students the opportunity to win prizes for playing classic games (but not “classic” in the sense that we’ve rigged them). You won’t be able to wish away your #20SomethingProblems, but you will get to face them head-on—while knocking over some milk bottles. (Everyone knows that knocking stuff down is super cathartic.)
