Here’s what you missed on the SALT Blog if you spent the past 7 days strutting your stuff during New York Fashion Week.
(Hopefully, “strut your stuff” is all you did, though, as other actions there have proven to be much more costly.)
- At the end of this week, Intern Mike leaves us to study abroad. Despite his departure, Mike still believes that every student should have a part-time job. (Perhaps his will become freelance blogger…?)
- The Mirror Meter returned—and just in time, as some late-summer movies finally shook up our rankings.
- Diane Melville continues simplifying the scholarship application process. This time, she broke down the anatomy of a winning scholarship essay into an infographic.
- Diane wasn’t finished, though. She also shed some light on her time spent in community college, detailing how her time there changed her life for the better.
- Evelyn Ngugi reminded us that making friends after college is not only hard, but also expensive.
- Michael J Cirino offered some advice to people who find themselves in a situation similar to Evelyn’s: invite people over to your house and cook with them. You’ll hopefully get a great meal but definitely get to spend a lot of time hanging out.
- I compared hugging people to stealing someone’s identity, which seems like it’d be an absolute field day for a psychiatrist.
- Mike Restiano popped up again with some advice for students about adjusting to new environments. And even though the advice came from observing Labrador puppies in a kiddie pool, it’s no less valid.
- Josie Corichi opened up about own debt story, which involved opening up the box under her bed where she “filed” all her unopened student loan statements.
- In a very special Internview (not to be confused with a “very special Blossom“), Matt Black detailed his escape from Nevada and journey becoming a senior information architect.
- Finally, we welcomed the fall TV season in style—well, at least our style—as I wondered which financial stories 5 different shows could cover this year.
