Independence, freedom, and adulthood are all words that we freely associate with college. But here at City Paper, we have a bit of a Peter Pan complex. Sure, we know how to be grown-ups, but we also like to live life with a little bit of child-like enthusiasm — which is why we created this activity book. It brings you back to your days as a kid but with more age-appropriate material. So, kick back, learn about your new home, and grow up (but only a little bit).

Money doesn’t grow on trees — or in activity books. And eating and drinking can be expensive, so here are some great deals happening around town. Try them all to find your favorite, and yes that is a challenge.
