Went in to buy a 2017 MacBook Pro w/ Touchbar at Apple and the employee was about to ring me up at full price. When I went to pay on my University of Miami credit card he saw it was for a school and took off $100 ($1699 for base model) on the computer and $20 off of the AppleCare+ ($249), I haven’t been a student in 10 years so if you have a college themed card it should be enough to give you the education discount with no trouble even if your not currently enrolled there.
If your local campus computer store sells Apple products, they probably carry AirPods as well. For those who are on the hunt for AirPods, these university stores often carry them!
