Off Lease Only is driving the next generation at the OLO College Tour!

College is great, but life is expensive. That’s why we decided to do the first annual Off Lease Only College Tour. From Orlando to Miami, our social media assistants Isabelle Arboleda and Kelbin Ramirez visited some of the state’s greatest colleges. UCF, Valencia, MDC Kendal and FAU students got to experience the OLO brand first-hand, get some great free swag and gift cards. Plus a student at each school won a $1,000 voucher that they can use toward the purchase of a new ride from OffLeaseOnly.com.

Off Lease Only 2019 College TourHere’s a few tips to help you survive college

Advisors rock!
Getting through college is hard enough, but it can be especially hard if you can’t get into the right classes. So meet with your advisor every semester, because they can help you pick the right classes, and even get you into classes that you may have missed out on.

Take notes!
You might think that you have a good memory, but you have a lot of stuff coming at you when you’re in college. From quizzes to assignments, you need to log everything that way you don’t get overwhelmed. Then the end of every day, you can go back over your notes and plan your next day.

 

Don’t listen to music with words!
That might sound funny, but listening to your favorite playlist while you’re studying can actually reduce your ability to concentrate. Your mind often picks up the words in a song, which can prevent you from absorbing the information that you’re trying to cram in. So if you’ve got to zone out and study, listen to instrumental type music. There’s plenty of “study music” playlists and stations on places like Pandora and Spotify, and some of it is really pretty awesome.

Look for deals!

Managing money is a big part of surviving college, so take some time and figure out how to get the best deals on stuff in your area. A lot of restaurants and stores will offer discounts and specials for college students, but you’ve got to know where to look. Your college may offer a resource section, where you can find the best deals in your area. There’s also a lot of apps out there that you can use to save money. And if you need a new ride, Off Lease Only has a ton of great cars starting at just $10,000. These are late model cars with super low miles and most of them still have the balance of their original factory warranty. This is going to save you a lot of money in the long run, because you won’t have to pay to fix stuff that might break. As long as the repair is covered under the warranty, you can just take it to the nearest dealer and they’ll fix it for you. Plus, if you get a car that gets great gas mileage (like a Kia Soul, Hyundai Elantra or Nissan Versa), you might be able to afford a road trip to someplace fun (like the beach, or back home to do laundry).
