5 Back To School Must-Haves Every Successful College Student Needs For Their Best Year Yet

Well, it's that time again, and it came so much faster than all of us could have expected! This season of quarantine has truly been a bummer, and what better way to get over the corona blues than to go school shopping?!

I know, school shopping probably isn't everyone's favorite time of year, but quarantine has gotten me excited to get back to school. Whether you're entering your first year of college or your last, here are some must-haves for college students going back to school!

This Fringe Studio Weekly Perpetual Planner

Nordstrom

If you're like me at all, then you are probably SUPER forgetful, especially when life gets crazy. Getting a planner gives you a place to write down all of your plans, homework assignments, and anything else you might need to organize in your daily life.

This is probably the most important part of getting ready for school because COVID-19 has thrown lots of curveballs. Hopefully, a planner will help you stay ahead so you never miss a deadline amongst the craziness!

Fringe Studio's Set Of 2 Monogram Floral Slim Mini Journals

Nordstrom

This one seems like a no-brainer, but without fail, there are always people asking to use some paper in the middle of class.

Personally, I like to go the notebook route and grab a five subject one so that all of my notes are in one book, but buying one for each class and then color coding is just as effective.

It's all about what will help you out the most when being organized!

$10

This Hydroflask 32-Ounce Wide Mouth Cap Bottle

Nordstrom

Staying hydrated is just as important as studying hard. That is why I'm including a water bottle on this list! Drinking water helps to improve focus while in the classroom, so try to have water with you in every class, and find a COVID safe way to fill it up between classes.

After a little while, you'll find that focusing in class is a little bit easier than before!

$45

Lexon's Fine Tube Power Bank Portable Charger

Nordstrom

Part of being a college student is having devices available for all your school (and social) needs. Keeping a portable charger in your backpack will ensure that you never run out of battery while studying or making plans with others.

$25

Kate Spade New York's Gold Stripe Pen Set

Amazon

Last, but certainly not least, to be successful this year, you'll need writing utensils! Now, I tend to get as many colors as I can in order to color code everything.

However, getting a nice set or two of pens that are all one color should be enough for anyone. There's something about new pens that get me excited to get into the classroom and learn.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
