The Ultimate College Gift Guide for Any College Student


If you read my last post, then you know I'm headed back to school to finish a BA in Communications at Brooklyn College. The start to my Fall semester comes with much anticipation, excitement and anxiousness. These past couple of months and weeks leading up to the kickoff to the semester, have been a whirlwind of orientations, financial aid and advisement appointments. It is safe to say that college has not gotten any easier since I graduated back in 2002.  I'm sure that my first weeks of school will be challenging as I learn  new faces, each class syllabus and attend scheduled meetings with my professors. My memories of college are some of the most fun times of my life. However, this time around, it will be a bit a more conservative. While I'm sure college will be less intimidating, I look forward to learning more about myself. So, to help me make my transition back into college as painless as possible, here's my ultimate college gift guide for any college student.
