Ah, the summer that we’ve waited forever for, is slowly slipping away. In just a few weeks college will be back in session, and students will get on with their fall semester! It seems like just yesterday we took our final exam for the winter/spring semester, and we were out for summer. Although we’re going back soon, we need to make sure we make the best of it. Start this semester out good, be prepared, and make it easier on yourself this time around. If you’re looking to get prepared ahead of time, consider a few of these tips to help you out!
Classes scheduled – First of all, you of course want to make sure you have your classes scheduled, and all figured out. It is also a good idea to find where they all are. You don’t want to wait until the last day to try to find them. If you do, you will most likely be late. So, plan ahead and have your classes ready, and waiting for you.
School supplies – Also, if you can ahead of time, find out which books you need and do your usual school shopping. Make sure you have a backpack, and all the supplies you need ahead of time. A great place to find these items is through Amazon!
Rested - Make sure you’re well, and rested. Take advantage of the last summer days. Get your sleep, and do what you’ve been wanting to do this summer before school starts!
Last money opportunity – If you’re working a summer job, be sure to get in the last hours you can. The more money the better! We know how tight our schedule gets when we start school, so it is good to be prepared financially!
Last errands – Also, do your last errands! By new clothes (if you need them), school supplies, and items you may need for your dorm room. Not to mention, try and get your last appointments in. It is important to keep up on your shots, physicals, dentists appointments, etc. Once you have all of these done, you will feel much better! Not to mention, you’ll have one less thing to worry about!
Getting prepared for college is a little stressful. We’re trying to get our last hours in at work, run our errands, and hang out with friends and family before we have no life again. College does stink sometimes, but try to make the best of it! If you go in with a positive attitude, and end it with one your semester will go much easier!
