Personal spending habits
Food is generally less expensive at the university cafeterias, and groceries seemed to be less too. I used télécartes at 50F per card to make international and local calls in France. Taking the train is certainly less expensive than gas prices and domestic airfare in the US. I never experienced a cover charge at a bar or club for that matter in France. Mixed-drinks were perhaps a little on the high side but a good beer in Dijon was only 2.75 USD. Overall, it was cheaper for me to be in France for the summer than it would have been to stay home.
