Student-Priced Buffets Collage

People will find any occasion to celebrate—that’s just how it is nowadays. Whether it’s a pay raise, a relationship ‘monthsary’ or even if you’re just feeling a tad happier for no apparent reason, there is always a reason to #treatyourself.

But celebrations aside, let’s not forget that money doesn’t grow on trees, and having yourself fancy dinners on a regular basis is probably not the most ideal. But that’s not to say that you can’t still enjoy yourself a feast every now and then.

From hot pot to barbecue buffets and even Japanese buffets that see endless servings of fresh sashimi, here is our list to 10 student-priced buffets that are perfect for the occasional treat.
