Does anyone like being that person without something to take notes that first day? No.
Or the person running around because they do not know where their classes are? No.
So, then don’t be that person! Be organized by having the books and materials needed, such as a padfolio, for your classes and know where those classes are. A little prep work does wonders here. Get your materials the week before, and if possible, visit campus to find out where your classes are.
And don’t forget some type of schedule or calendar. This will not only help the first week but will make sure you stay on top of future projects and events during the fall semester!
There is nothing worse than being in the first week of fall semester, and your eyes are already spiraling from the stress that the current semester MAY bring. Try to not let yourself think too much about the semester and the possible challenges that are ahead. Try to instead focus on getting back into the swing of going to classes and being comfortable on campus.

And after all, it is syllabus week!
One of the biggest must do’s when you get back is to get reconnected with your friends and your campus. It has probably been a while since you have seen your friends, so message them and figure out your schedules, when you can meet, and get some time in this week to reconnect.
Finally, reconnect with your campus and college town! Reconnect with your clubs or organizations you are a part of. Find out when your club’s call out meeting is and if there is anything big coming up soon. See if there are any events either in the first week back, or sometime over the next month or so. Also see if there is anything going on in town that may be cool to check out like festivals or cool shows.
Be Open to New Experiences!
While we all want to get a degree so we can get a well-paying job down the road, one of the biggest aspects of college is figuring out who you are. What gives you joy and what are you passionate about? If you never venture outside of what you are used to, you will never discover all the aspects of yourself.
This week, and the weeks following it, try talking to new people; students in your classes and people on campus in general. Look for new clubs to join, new restaurants to eat at, new places to hangout, and so on!If you follow these four B’s, you’re sure to have a successful first week back on campus this fall. And if you’re looking for some companionship to help get you through the week, then look no further than our retriever tees!
