You do not sleep once you enter college. Sleep is a commodity that is always scarce and college guys usually regret staying up late when they are still in high school, because college is going to force a student to cram everything all at once, work various part-time jobs in order to support themselves, and also socialize like a pro in parties and events arranged by their respective organizations. Thus, coffee is a college guys’ best friend, but come on, Starbucks always have long lines and of course, costs more money than regular college guys can usually afford, so arrange a coffee-lover package for them and help them stay awake with a dose of caffeine!
