Discounts for grads

Merrimon McCartney
Subway is one of the many places graduates can get a discount.

As graduation grows closer and closer, seniors become more excited to start their new lives in college.  But there’s more to graduation than being out of high school.  In addition to moving on, college students get many wallet-saving perks.

With a simple flash of their I.D., those enrolled in school can get discounts from places such as AMC theaters to chain hotels.  For example, students are able to use their ID at Apple and receive $200 off of a new Mac.

About the Contributor
Claire Peralta
Claire Peralta, Staff Reporter
Now that she’s a senior, not much has changed besides the dwindling number of days until her graduation. Claire Peralta is still as awkward and unsure of herself as she was freshman year, but about 2 inches taller. Rarely will you see her without a Diet Coke in hand, because of her undying love for Diet Coke, as showcased in her junior year staff bio. Yes, she knows it’s unhealthy, please don’t inform her of how her stomach is slowly becoming radioactive. She loves odd necklaces, surfing, travelling, and hopes to leave the United States as soon as possible to become the female Rick Steves while learning as many languages as possible. Her favorite color is the absence of color, and has little to no filter. Claire attributes her unique personality to her obsession with James Bond movies and Blink-182 in the 3rd grade. She apologizes in advance if she offends you, she probably didn’t mean to. For questions and inquiries contact: [email protected], or follow her on Twitter @clairemperalta.
