school loans question

I'm in my first semester of a 2-year MA program. I'm being funded by government loans. This semester I accepted all the loan money offered to me, not realizing I could decline some of it. So now I have $5000 extra dollars in my bank account. Next year I will be sure to decline that extra money, but in the meantime, any ideas about this money? Should I just save it as best I can and use it all to pay off the loans when they're due in 2 years? Any other ideas? I just feel really weird having all this cash around.
