Student Discounts


Many companies offer student specific discounts. Apple Music allows you to enjoy all of your favorite songs for half the price of a normal membership. Amazon Student is basically Amazon Prime at half the price. With this subscription, you can enjoy free two-day shipping and access to the Video and Kindle library.

For more offers, check out: www.studentrate.com

Your school may also have a list and offer free events! Keep in mind, you’ll need a school email address or student ID to access most discounts.



OUR CU offers members two different scholarships. The Theodore Cologie Scholarship is awarded to two applicants graduating from high school, and the Gwen Anne Barr Memorial Scholarship is awarded to one applicant who is continuing their education. Applications are available at the beginning of the year.

Save on textbooks by choosing to rent instead of buy. This is an option on websites like Chegg, where you can also sell your books back when you’re finished with them, so you’re getting some of your money back.
