Free software? …Where?

We all love the word “free” – free samples, free apps, free snacks… but what about free software?

As college students, we know that education is anything but free. We pay tuition, books, housing, and all the other crazy expenses that we happen to come across. Nonetheless, we also get many opportunities such as scholarships, internships, discounts, and all of that good stuff.

However, today I would like to make it known to you all (especially those who, like myself, are studying in a computer related field) that there is this wonderful site that gives us college students FREE software. That’s right.

I’m talking about DreamSparks! There are only three simple steps to follow in order to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind opportunity:

  1. Create an account.
    The only thing that you need to create an account is your school email and… well that’s about it.
  2. Get verified.
    You will receive an email from the site as a verification of your account and it will provide you with a link that you have to click on. Voila!
  3. Start your downloads!
    Once you get verified, you can log in and start your downloads at no cost.

Being a college student is rewarding, isn’t it?
