Believe it or not, but summer’s already coming to an end! And the end of summer means one thing – the back-to-school season is upon us! It can be a bit overwhelming preparing for a new semester with getting your new schedule set, packing up all of your belongings, and settling into a new place (if you’re living on campus). Here are my best tips for back-to-school survival to help you prepare for the semester/new school year ahead!
Invest in a Good Bag
Tote bags have been life savers for me throughout my college (undergrad and grad) life! You want a bag that’s sturdy enough to hold all of your notebooks, textbooks, and other daily essentials when on-the-go. From my experience, a waterproof bag or canvas tote will certainly do the trick!
Pick Up a Printer
Whether you’re living on campus or at home, a printer is a must-have! I can’t tell you how many times having one has saved me, especially when it comes to the last minute scramble of finalizing an assignment right before it needs to be submitted.
The brand new HP Deskjet 3752 is the world’s smallest all-in-one printer that allows you to save space and fit your budget needs! My favorite feature? The ability to quickly print right from your mobile device or computer without having to plug extra cords in. You’re also able to easily recycle your HP ink cartridges at no charge via the HP Planet Partners program.
It can be tough to find a printer that does everything you want AND fit within your price range. But this affordable all-in-one does it all – wireless printing, scanning, and copying! For your convenience, you can pick up the HP Deskjet 3752 in the printer aisle (near electronics) at your local Walmart or even order online at Walmart.com for in-store pick-up or have it delivered straight to your door.
Do a Test Run on Campus
I can’t stress this one enough! Nothing’s more embarrassing than walking into the wrong classroom on the first day or showing up super late because you didn’t plan for traffic, parking, etc. Each semester without fail, taking a little extra time to do this saved me big time!
Set a Study Schedule
This is definitely subject to change, but choosing a set timeframe each week to study will really help out! Even something as simple as penciling in an hour a couple nights a week will make quite the difference.
Being organized is SO important. At the start of each semester, I like to print the class syllabus and review before the first day (even though the professor usually goes over it in class as well). It’s always handy to have a printed copy to grab and refer to if you’re unsure of deadlines as well. My favorite way to organize? Color-coding things! Planners and printable calendars are the best for staying on top of deadlines and important dates in your life! Fortunately, the HP Deskjet 3752 is quick to print so you can mark those important dates and post them on your wall!
What are your tips for gearing up for a new semester and surviving back-to-school? If you’re preparing for a new semester yourself, good luck!
