Refunds, refunds and more refunds. It’s like a broke college students heaven on earth. Getting a refund check for school twice a year is what most students look forward to and one of the only times they continuously call the business office.The refunds from USM are given back to students through the online account that the school has set up for them. During the fall semester, the refunds are distributed around September. When the New Year rolls around, they are distributed around February, just in time for Valentines Day and Spring Break. This is perfection in most students’ eyes. It’s just in time for bathing suit shopping and buying chocolates for your sweetie. Audrey Borchardt, a 19-year-old student at USM used her refund for her spring break preparations.
“I used my refund to buy like 3 new bathing suits and pay for my trip to Destin,” Audrey said.
“I even had extra left over to buy drinks and stuff with. Refunds are awesome,” she said.
I guess if I got a refund check twice a year, I’d be pretty excited about it, but there are some students, like myself that don’t receive refunds for different reasons. My parents are trying to save me from future debt, so they won’t let me take out loans. They just pay for my school along with a small scholarship I got from my community college.
“I don’t get a refund,” Allee d’Aquin, 18-year-old student at USM said.
“I wish I did, but I guess it’ll be good in the long run that I don’t,” she said.
