As a whole, today’s college students have grown up playing video games. Over half of college students own a gaming system and college students spend $341 million per year on games. For students who are barely making ends meet, one would have to wonder if there were, perhaps, other ways students could play video games they would like.

Search these resources and learn how you could save.
