Good, Clean (And Cheap!) Fun

I am a bit of a cheapskate. I shop almost exclusively on clearance racks, and will put my name in pretty much any drawing that involves free food. I just hate spending money, and I always have. Coming to college

has only perpetuated my preoccupation with purchasing. While I work two jobs and still receive great amounts of financial help from my parents, I have found myself turning down more opportunities to go out to eat with friends and walking out of more stores empty-handed than ever before. That being said, on the occasions when I have gone out my position as a college student has actually helped me enjoy some moderately-priced fun. Just in the last week I have taken advantage of two of the greatest deals available to college students: half-priced wings and and a $5 movie.

Sunday night, my clubbies and I piled into cars and drove over to Buffalo Wild Wings to partake in College Night. After 9 pm, all menu items are half off with a valid college ID and drink purchase. We were not alone; half of the restaurant appeared to be occupied by Cobbers.

Last night, a few of my beautiful floor mates and I took advantage of another great deal: a $5 movie at West Acres 14. Just by flashing our Concordia IDs we were able to snag $5 tickets to American Sniper AND FREE POPCORN!

About to see American Sniper!

Of course, these are not the only deals college students can enjoy in Fargo-Moorhead. Countless restaurants and businesses have promos available, all you have to do is hand over your ID! (Just don’t do what I once did and mistake your ID for a debit card; believe it or not, Starbucks does not take Dining Dollars.)

Hi there! My name is Katie Beedy and I am a communication studies and multimedia journalism double major, class of 2018. I am also considering a minor in women’s and gender studies. I have lived here in lovely Moorhead, Minnesota for my entire life. After years of telling myself that I needed to break free and go to school far away, I finally gave in to the voice in my head telling me that Concordia was where I needed to be (and my goodness, am I glad I did). I don’t think any other school could better suit my combined passions for music, theatre, people, literature, food, social justice, adventures, and corn-related puns.

I love words and I love Concordia. I hope to use these loves to share my Cobber experience with you all.
