Each season has its own distinct characteristics. For summer, it’s warm weather, traveling and beaches. Winter boasts snow and holidays. Spring is all about pastels, flowers and allergies. Fall, however, is the season that kickstarts us into school. Always a busy time of year, fall is the time for new beginnings and comfort. The weather changes, the school year begins, and with that, there are many things that need to be done.
The fall semester has started and thousands of students, new and returning, are attempting to make their way through campus. Avoid the confusion and chaos by running through your classes and the areas around campus and town that you will frequently visit.
Gather seasonal clothes
Cold, rainy weather is on the horizon. Be prepared for this early by ensuring you have the proper garments for the changes. With the rain, rain jackets and boots are a necessity. There is nothing worse than having to walk across campus in the pouring rain without a line of defense. Additionally, sweaters will come in handy for those chilly days when you don’t want to layer with jackets.
Football is definitely a big part of college life, and this year’s season starts Sept. 1. Excitement for the season is noticeable as the wait grows shorter. Tailgates and parties are on the way, and to ensure you get the maximum experience, student season tickets are available online (https://mutigers.com/sports/2015/3/19/students.aspx?path=tix&camefrom=EMCL_2445874_109522374).
Store up on fall scents
If you’re feeling a little homesick, or just sick of the smells dorm life has to offer, try purchasing fall-themed room fragrances. The scent of pumpkin or pine has a calming effect. Warm autumnal scents give you a sense of nostalgia that bring you back to home and make you feel cozy.
Binge-watch iconic shows
Autumn is curling up in bed and watching shows like Gilmore Girls and childhood movies like Halloweentown. On the off chance of free-time in college, sit down with a Pumpkin Spice Latte and hit play on your favorite seasonal show.
