See...it doesn't matter what you study when you go to college. It's the stuff you learn between studying that counts.
Ramen Noodles are a meal.
A jar of peanut butter will give you three solids for a week.
A can of corn is a meal.
Ditto pork and beans.
Save up $7, and go to an all you can eat buffet.
Prices may very in states that are not South Carolina.
And cereal is fine dining.
And caffeine can save your life.
And generic brand mac & cheese is always 4 for a dollar.
And accepting every invitation for a home-cooked meal even if you don't like the hosts is just smart budgeting.
