Let's Talk About Sex & Student Spending

Here’s a good conversation starter. Every now and then Trend Central posts a college student testimonial of sorts. The most recent one is of a college student talking about sex on campus. The short testimonial explains some of the different attitudes towards sex between guys and girls at college:

“Sex in college seems to be more about how others will judge you, rather than the act itself. Guys, of course, get respect out of sex. They will actually forgo the towel and instead write across their door whiteboard a message to their roommate, “Don’t come in! I’m having sex,” while the girl waits patiently inside. At my school, this is called ‘Sexiling.’”

You can read the rest here.

And, “according to the National Retail Federation, college students will spend $36.6 billion on furniture, supplies and books, with freshmen spending $1,152 on average, the New York Times writes (via MediaBuyerPlanner). And 29 percent of college students will do their shopping online this year.”
