Having a college ID gets you more than just discounts at local restaurants. Professionals and leaders in your future industry will most likely be very willing to sacrifice their time in order to "give back" to the next generation. You wouldn’t believe how much expert advice and knowledge you can receive (for free) by saying, “I’m a college student and was wondering…”
Being able to say I was a student turned out to be priceless in many different situations. I received free guidance from intellectual property lawyers, professional accountants, business leaders, and more simply by using that phrase. Use this college power before you lose it. Believe me, once you graduate, saying “I’m a recent college graduate…” only works for so long.
Moral of this story: Seek the free guidance from expert business leaders while you can!
