17 Free Date Ideas for Grad School Students

Free date ideas during grad school

During grad school, we struggled to find things to do together.  Time was short and we had barely any money if any at all.  We knew that the stress of grad school would rip us apart if we didn’t get some free date ideas for students in grad school to get us through.

We wanted to be sure we took time for each other and stepped away from the everyday grind.   We made a goal to go on at least 1 date out a month.  I wanted to have one year of dates that we could pick from if we don’t have much money.

My husband and I sat down and started brainstorming and we kept going until we couldn’t think of anymore. We ended up with 17 free date ideas for grad school students!!! If you need an idea for a date, check out this list and go have some free fun!
