College is back in session! We were shopping Libbie Place Target last Saturday and it was PACKED with college students and their parents stocking up on dorm supplies.
For all you University of Richmond and VCU matriculants, and others, I’ve collected a few local discounts offered to college students. This is by no means a comprehensive list; lots of places offer special savings to college students, so it’s always worth asking (and carrying your ID!).
Carytown Cupcakes – Students, bring your student ID to Carytown Cupcakes and get 10% off your cupcake purchases!
Richmond Symphony – We offer a $5 – $7 college student ticket at-the-door ONLY, with valid college I.D.
Strawberry Street Cafe – Tuesday is College Night; college students and faculty get 20% off food purchase after 4pm with valid ID
Swift Creek Mill – Offers 50% off rush tickets at the box office on day of the show for all students with a valid ID
Barksdale Theatre – U-Tkts are designed to enable and encourage more college and university students to attend our productions. Tickets cost $10 each for most productions. ($20 each whenever the full price of tickets is over $40) Students can reserve U-Tkts in advance over the phone or in person for any performance, pending availability. A student may purchase two U-Tkts to be used by himself/herself and a guest. The guest may be a student or a non-student. To purchase, call (804) 282-2620.
Brad’s Deals has a list of 39 national retailers and restaurants that offer discounts to collegians.
Would love to expand the list, let me know if you know about others!
