So you’ve been doing this college thing for a while now. Any advice for students?

  • It’s ok if you don’t shower for a few days- college can be difficult. However, if you have time to shower, definitely do so! Just remember to wear perfume.
  • Also carry snacks, because you will get the muchies during a lecture hall. STUDY STUDY STUDY when and where you can, for 5 minutes or 4 hours it makes a difference!
  • Take advantage of the massage chairs and aromatherapy available on campus for free.
