Why Students Should Care About Health Care Costs

One of the biggest complaints about organic food is that it is too expensive.

Well, in many cases that is in fact true. However, organic food may cost more, but that's because it is worth more.

One way I like to rationalize paying more for organic food is to think about all the good things it does for my health and the earth, and how the extra bucks really are worth it in the long run. Usually I run this list over and over in my head as I near the checkout aisles...

Managing your time gets hard in college, especially if you’re still adjusting as a freshman or a transfer student. Exercise for 60 minutes each day? You can’t even finish your homework.
