$1500 Student Budget Challenge

“I might have to scrap my plans for the Atlanta Classic,” said Quinton Stroud, 20, a health science junior from Fountain Inn, S.C.

With the recent rises in gas and food, Stroud summed up his week as “struggling.”

“I’ve gotten way better with managing my money and I managed to save $25 this week by not eating out,” said Stroud. “But I did go to the movies on Saturday that cost about $20 including the movie ticket, popcorn and Arctic Blast.”

Stroud has $1200 left and 11 weeks to go.

“Pray for me ya’ll…pray for me,” he said.

Stroud is in his fourth week of the FAMUAN student budget challenge. Keep up with his journey every Friday in the business section.
