Spend all week searching for the perfect Father’s Day gift? (You went for the Sportula, didn’t you?)
Well, then check out what you may have missed on the SALT™ Blog.
- Former intern Mike Restiano is now former study-abroad student Mike Restiano. He shared what he learned about going abroad without going broke in our latest free webinar (now available as a recorded session).
- Diane Melville taught us that a student who isn’t eligible for a single scholarship is a lot like a unicorn:
awesomerare. That’s why applying for scholarships like it’s your job almost always results in free money for you.
- Our community told us why “Old Economy Steven” just doesn’t get the struggles students and young alums face today. (Shoot, he probably doesn’t “get” memes either!)
- Brigit Bauma extolled the virtues of nail polish and other quick fashion fixes you can make on your own without spending a lot of money.
- I pictured former intern Sasha’s first weekend in New York City looking something like this. Unfortunately, she forget her umbrella … as well as a bunch of other stuff. She told us how she snagged those essentials, despite NYC’s higher cost of living.
- Sarah Barker’s son may have lost the state lacrosse championship, but that won’t necessarily stop him from playing sports in college—something lots of students and parents dream about.
- Diane shared a message with non-traditional community college students: You are unicorns! OK, she didn’t use the unicorn metaphor again; however, it fits, because these students are should embrace what makes them different, particularly for their transfer admissions essays.
- Jimmy Kimmel (not a blog contributor … yet!) taught us a valuable social media lesson: anyone could be reading your tweets, including NBA superstars.
- With another graduation season winding down, Evelyn Ngugi stopped by to share some financial advice with all the new grads out there (that means folk finishing high school and college).
- Summer internship season hit the SALT Blog, as Intern Carmen joined our team and shared her student loan story. (Thank goodness we have a new intern; referring to everyone as “former intern” was making me wistful.)
- Aaron Weber took us inside his thought process, as he tried to figure out what to do with his 10-year-old car that was literally held together by zip ties.
- Taking our inspiration from Man Of Steel, we asked our SALT bloggers to share the best financial idea they’ve stolen from someone else. “Financial kryptonite” probably would’ve been a stronger tie-in. Oh, well, we’ll save it for the inevitable sequel.
