Expenses
Main source of funding:
Personal savings
Other sources of funding:
Family<br> Government assistance
Work opportunities:
It was not legal for me to work
Personal spending habits
On campus housing cost quite abit more than my apartment at home. There really aren't any cooking facilities in the dorms, so students go out for food much more than at home; naturally that is more expensive. The night life in Chapel Hill doesn't begin to compare to Groningen, so I spent much less on going out. On the other hand, I spent much more on travel because I wanted to see as much of the US as possible while I was there.

Less on food and nightlife because it was cheaper, so although I ate and drank well it was not expensive. Phone was not cheap, especially not longdistance. I traveled more than usual, so that got expensive, and when I moved off campus I still paid $100-200 less than at home a month.

I would get a bank account right away, shop at yardsales instead of secondhand shops and compare prices on internet, cable and phonedeals.

The exchange rate made living expenses greater in the States. I also lived at home in Australia and therefore had less expenses. However, I believe with careful budgeting it could have worked out around the same as in Australia.

None too significant. Perhaps students should consider the benefit of having a meal plan as they are quite expensive and it may be a lot cheaper to cook for themselves.
