September is just around the corner, and your mom is already planning where she wants you to stand for your annual "First Day of School" photo. You too can get ahead of the game by checking out our tips for back to school prep! Don't worry, once you check off these few steps you can go back to being in complete denial that summer is almost over.
Class Guides: Map out your first week and beyond by double (and triple) checking the schedule and location of your classes. Then, create a route for each day that always passes by the campus coffee shop.
Textbook Deals: The actual last thing that you want to spend money on is heavy, wordy textbooks that you'll only use for one semester. Check sites like Amazon and Ebay for cheap used books, and then spend your extra money on massive bags of Lucky Charms marshmallows.
Personalizing your tech is just as important as protecting it. Choose items that speak to your unique style and chances are that no one else on campus will have the same swag. This pretty much guarantees that your classmate won't accidentally grab your phone and see all of your Snapchat selfies.
When you know you're going to be on campus all day, you've gotta make sure you're prepped and ready for anything that might come your way. Besides carrying your books, notebooks, and perfectly-sharpened pencils, throw in some carryall pouches with things to get you through the day like snacks, Advil, and pictures of Drake.
The amount of coffee you're about to drink over the next four years is inconceivable. Do your part to save the planet by always keeping your travel mug on hand. Cool cups also pose as a great conversation starter with the cute barista you've been eyeing all semester.
Don't sacrifice cool for comfort! Stuff your pint-sized closet full of graphic tees, hoodies, and bold leggings that will make getting dressed before your 8 AM class a no-brainer. The more the merrier, always make sure you have enough to last you until the next time your mom can do your laundry.
