We all know that being a student can be tough on your bank balance and that means always looking out for special student deals so save a buck or two.

If that’s the case, then you’re in luck.

Various bars, restaurants, movie theaters, bowling alleys and more offer super cheap week night discounts and deals. if you find that you have a particular interest in something like bowling, then it might be a good investment to get something like these best bowling shoes, to help you make sure you have the best time with your friends. You can really bond as you play team games together in your fancy new shoes. It doesn’t have to be bowling though there is plenty of other things you can invest in to help you have a great time as you hang out with your friends, like playing a game of darts. Keep on reading to find out more options for stuff you can do. Below, Sidelines has compiled a list of all the advertised deals around town for each day. So grab your pals and try something new this week. Or, if you can’t decide where to go, you could get some home games instead! Home dartboards, which you can read more about here, or giant Jenga always go down really well with large groups of friends.

Though they aren’t exactly cheap, Murfreesboro features two “escape room” challenges. You can get a group together and go to either Murfreesboro Escape Rooms or 60 Minute Escape for around $20 each.

There are often free house shows with four or five bands playing at once around campus. Most of them occur Thursday-Sunday but there’s always a few during the week. You can check Facebook and ask around about shows each week.

MTSU offers recreational sports teams. It’s around $10-$15 a person to play for the whole season, and you can assemble your own team and sign up. The games vary from soccer to pool battleship, so there’s something for everyone.

Check around campus to see when free movies are offered in the student union.

Check this list to see all the restaurants in Murfreesboro that offer a student discount (with valid MTSU ID).
