Students: 21 Things To Do In Ottawa If You're Broke AF
Save it up!
Life as a student can be hard... especially when it comes to trying to save money. Once in a while, it's nice to go out and do something with all your friends, but then you all realize you're broke. After the insane prices of tuition and the unreal prices of textbooks, you're stuck wondering how TF can you do anything fun anymore?!
Although maybe not the, Ottawa has plenty to do that costs little to no money. I know the tough life of being a student, from not having enough time to meet up to also remembering you're broke AF, things to do kind of diminish until the break in December. These 21 things in this list are perfect if you don't have a ton of spare money.
