The holidays are quickly approaching and many of us still have quite a few people left to shop for. However, gifts don’t always have to be physical things we buy at stores. Connect Room & Board can be a fantastic and meaningful gift to several people on your list.
1.) The Student in Your Life
If your child is in college, chances are they are worried about the mountain of student loans they’ll have after graduating. In fact, on-campus housing can add an average of $12,000 per year to their debt. Luckily, there are other options! Give your student the gift of savings and a safe, comfortable housing experience with Connect Room & Board. Check out the application process here.
2.) The Empty Nesters or Newlyweds You Know with a Spare Room
Do you know a friend or family member that lives near a college and has some extra room in their house? Recommend they look into applying as a host with Connect Room & Board. Once they are paired, they’ll receive the gift of making a huge difference in a student’s life, as well as some extra cash for sharing their space. To learn more, click here.
3.) Yourself and/or Your Partner
Did you know that if your student participates in the Connect Room & Board program and your family also signs up as a host to fill their vacant room, your student will be able to get housing for $250 per semester? For parents funding their child’s studies, this is a huge savings! Give yourself some good karma by providing this amazing opportunity for your child, your family, and another student.
