It took me some time to find the online resources for everything I needed in college

There are a thousand websites that are supposed to be "helpful: but don’t actually provide any useful information.

These website are ones I found to be actually be helpful and essential while being in college.

From finding a textbook PDF so you don’t have to pay those expensive prices, to discounts that help make online shopping that much easier.

Think of this list as an extension of all your college must haves. They helped me, so hopefully they will be beneficial to you too :)
