1. Backpack


Don’t think you are too cool to use a backpack in college because you will definitely need one just like everyone else. I always get mine in a solid color so it doesn’t clash with my outfits and then personalize it with pins, patches and key chains.

2. Reusable Bag


It's good to have a few of these laying around for going to the grocery store. They're more sturdy than plastic, look cuter, and you don’t have to feel guilty about throwing them out after only one use like the plastic ones.

3. Tote


This bag is great for everything from going to work to your friends house. You can even use it in place of a backpack on days where you don’t have as much to carry.

4. Going Out Bag

A little smaller and more fancy than all your other bags this one will come in handy for the weekend when you don’t want to carry a large, heavy bag all over downtown. It also helps to make your outfit look more put together and dressy.

5. Duffel


The biggest bag of the bunch can be used for shoving your stuff into to lug home on the weekends or for dragging your laundry to the laundry room.

6. Drawstring Backpack


Just a casual lightweight backpack for when you're going to the gym, park, beach or just feel like being hands free.

7. Cross body


These types of bags are what I use on an everyday basis in college. They are big enough to hold the essentials without being too big that you keep a ton of unnecessary stuff in there that just weighs you down.

8. Wristlet

Many girls on campus prefer to carry a wristlet. They can fit your keys, money, student ID and phone and can be tossed right into your backpack if you don’t feel like carrying it.

9. Personal Touch


As you have heard many times before college is the time where you really start to figure yourself out and that includes figuring out your personal style. I recommend having at least one bag that helps you to stand out, makes you feel confident, and reflects who you are and the message you want to send to the world.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
