what to pack for college

What do you do the Night Before UNI Begins?

If you’re a freshman you’re probably nervous and excitedly planning your outfit.

In this post we’re going to talk about

  • Textbook discounts, and ways to save
  • the BEST college course schedule for college students.
  • What to do the night before class starts
  • What I pack to survive the day
  • How to Study (even if you never had to before)

Look, as a senior in college I can say that I do a quick run to Walmart and pick up: college ruled paper, a new binder, papermate erasable pens, and 5 folders for 0.15 cents each.

There’s no ‘1st Day Back’ outfit picked because the weather and desired level of comfort will decide for me.

I even found the best way to schedule your classes. FAFSA Requires 12. Your advisor 15. Listen to your stress level…

Wake up for online classes or attend: M-F 9am -3 pm

Only allow yourself 1 night class if you can help it, and try to avoid classes that meet once a week. (assignments will be due at once, and attendance is critical to your GPA)
