Most all colleges and universities have an office or some place on campus or online where students can view open job listings or get in touch with someone who can help them get started with work study or an on campus job. If you live on campus this can be a great way to make some extra cash without having to leave the campus.

Make Use Of Bulletin Boards

Every college has bulletin boards around campus, chances are you find yourself stopping at them frequently to check out what’s new! Use this to your advantage. Post flyers selling old textbooks, dorm appliances, etc. If you offer a service, post it here too! For instance, if you offer tutoring or are looking for a roommate to split the cost of living on or off campus, post those here! Just make sure it complies with your college’s rules about posting stuff around campus.

Tutor

This may not be useful if you are the person needing tutoring, but generally everyone has a subject or two that they are really good at. You don’t have to tutor in every subject, but if you rock at Math, by all means, tutor people in it! Make some extra cash while keeping the gears in your brain going.

Now that we’ve covered a few really cool ways to make money in person on or around campus, let’s get into the odd jobs and internet jobs that are for the student seeking some extra cash who doesn’t want to commit to any strict hours, like with a regular job.

eBay

Fiverr

You may or may not know about this website by now, but if you don’t and you’re a college student, you need to! All you need is a PayPal account to get started, that’s it. Basically you post a listing known as a “gig” on Fiverr for what you will do in exchange for $5. Now it doesn’t sound like a lot of cash, but trust us, it adds up fast! You can do anything from read over papers and check for spelling errors, take a picture of yourself holding a fan sign, distribute flyers around town or campus, etc. the possibilities are endless, and there are some super odd things people do for $5 on that website! Now, keep in mind that you only get to keep $4 for every “gig” you sell, Fiverr keeps a dollar from each sale you make. You also have to wait 14 days for each payment to clear, but this allows your amount to add up, so no worries.

Yardsellr

Much like eBay, you can sell things from around the house that you don’t need, and if you choose to have the cash deposited in your bank account there are no fees, nice huh?!

Make YouTube Videos

This may sound a little “out there” for some people, but believe it or not, some people make hundreds of thousands of dollars making YouTube videos every month. Now we’re not saying that you will, but you can make some decent extra cash if you monetize your videos and get an AdSense account. Just keep in mind that you will need to pay taxes on your earnings.

Write A Book

You may think we’re joking, but you can make some really good extra cash if you write a book and publish it to the Kindle or in paperback using CreateSpace. You get a percentage from every sale, and this is something that a lot of college students like to do. Advertise your book on campus, if you have a large campus you may find yourself a local star!

Haunted Halls At Concord University

If you were to visit Concord University, you would find a beautiful campus full of students who get along surprisingly well and one of the best learning environments you could possibly ask for. While this surface image of the campus life is certainly enticing and is usually enough to make one long to be a part of it all, what you don’t see is that this beautiful campus hides a dark secret. What many people on the outside don’t know, but many students have experienced first hand, is that Concord University is haunted.

The reports of paranormal activity mostly come from students who live in Sarvay and Wilson, which are both residence halls, and range from small things such as feelings and smells to major things such as full body apparitions and disembodied voices. One student from Wilson reports that they witnessed a figure of a girl in a white dress walk down the hallway and through a vending machine. In certain areas, including the elevator rooms in Wilson, there are intense feelings of uneasiness and feelings that you are not welcome there. In Sarvay, one student has reportedly felt as if there was someone in his room with him when his roommate wasn’t even there. He also says he has heard a child call his name and that once, while in the shower, he heard someone walk into the shower room and pull the window shut. He went to check it out and no one was in the room, in fact the door had not even been opened.

The activity, however, is not limited to these buildings. Throughout the school there have been reports of unexplained bad smells that seem to come out of no where. On the sixth floor in North Towers, residents claim that there are an increased amount of orbs in any photo taken. The paranormal also doesn’t seem to be bound to the physical world, but the mental world as well. Students who have never been depressed or had problems with anxiety suddenly appear to be overcome with feelings of fear and sadness. Some students even report having terrible and uncharacteristic nightmares about murdering other students or being murdered themselves.

Many students on the campus of Concord University in Athens, West Virginia have reported to have witnessed something out of the ordinary at one time or another but can these things be explained away by something natural? Some of it may have a natural explanation but some of it is too strange and out of the ordinary to explain away. Either way, these tales are chilling enough to keep one up at night.  As to whether or not they’re true, you’ll have to decide for yourself.
