While most post-college grads have some woeful story about being a poor, broke college kid, it may not be the case today. In a recent poll conducted by Shweiki Media and Study Breaks, it showed that nearly all college students spend money at a restaurant at least once a month.
eMarketer reported on the study’s findings and released information on other products/services college students spend their money on:
· 99% of those surveyed spend money at restaurants
· 87% spend on travel
· 76% spend on beauty
· 70% spend on bars
· 70% spend on fashion
· 60% spend on electronics
· 59% spend on live music
· 57% spend on media
· 38% spend on fitness (This refers to off-campus gyms.)
Unsurprisingly, the students’ parents were reported as the main source of income. This was the largest group of responders at 45%. In contrast, about 40% list primary income as the product of working, and another 15% rely heavily on student loans to succeed financially.
