Personal comments
Surprises: Books are really expensive. Savings: 1. When traveling with plane: Book way ahead, flights are almost always cheaper then and use websites like www.expedia.com, 2. Try to get second hand books, 3. Bank: Bank of America: Free students account, only big cost there (so beware): withdrawal costs 2$ every time, so try to withdrawal money as often as possible from bank facility itself (no cost).

Mainly because there is a lot of stuff you can't do at home like traveling somewhere new frequently and you do it when you are abroad. I don't pay accommodation home and neither food.

housing and insurance was very expensive; to save costs ask students from last semester e.g. for kitchen stuff, furniture, etc.

Work opportunities:
I worked during my study abroad experience
Personal spending habits
The Dollar - EURO exchange rate was very unfavourable at that time, so everything was much more expensive. Actually, I am confident to say that food, nightlife and accomodation were twice as expensive as at home!
