While the social aspects of college and all of the new experiences to come are an appeal, keeping yourself organized so that studying remains a priority is key. These simple tips will help you stay on track, keeping your items, space, and studies in order the whole year through so that your college career is a complete success.

Utilizing Self Storage

Let’s face it. Packing to head off to college was no fun, and we can guarantee packing everything up to lug back home won’t be a joyous occasion either. Rather than having to transport items back and forth at the end of each year, consider renting a self-storage unit close to campus so that you can keep items there when the semester is through, instead of having to pack up and bring them back home (and then back to school again). The convenience alone is worth the cost, and with sizes designed to fit any budget, it won’t break the bank either. Plus, if you rent a unit alongside your roommate(s) or other college friends, the cost will be extremely minimal, saving you time, money, and hassle.

Maximizing Dorm Space

Finding ways to maximize space within a tight dorm room can be challenging, but not impossible. Believe it or not, there are creative ways to utilize every nook and cranny of your room, and they don’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, by re-purposing some everyday items you and your roommate already have on hand, you can ensure your dorm room is well suited towards you and your roommate(s) needs, making that tiny space work for each of you. Best of all, if you need additional storage, you can always keep items within your storage unit, giving you the access you need for items that simply cannot fit.

Keeping Your Dorm Clean

Ah, adulthood. Nobody wants to clean but nobody wants to live in filth. It’s quite the problem. Instead of having a weekly, “...who should have cleaned what” argument, set up a cleaning schedule with your roommate(s), clearly specifying who is responsible for what and when. By sticking to a schedule and remaining diligent by tending to your own personal messes, you will avoid unnecessary friction within your dorm, making it a peaceful retreat instead of a stress-filled sanatorium.

Designated Study Schedule

Academics! The primary reason you are attending college in the first place! Who knew? Setting up a study schedule to ensure you are dedicated to your courses is an imperative part of getting through your first year, and frankly all four. While it may be tempting to veer off course for various social engagements, be disciplined and focused. The decisions you make now are what will set the stage for the rest of your life… (no pressure).

America is the student who defies the odds to become the first in a family to go to college - the citizen who defies the cynics and goes out there and votes - the young person who comes out of the shadows to demand the right to dream. That's what America is about.” -Barack Obama

So take charge of this incredible opportunity granted to you.

College will be what you make of it.

Make it good.
