ENG 100-203

It’s going to be your first day in college and you have no idea what to prepare? Should you take all your books and materials or should you not take anything at all? We’ve both been in that place and didn’t know how to prepare for our first day of college. Preparing for your first day of college can be easy as long as you prepare your clothes and other materials the night before, have your basic materials, and have a secure transportation.

The night before your first day of college try and prepare all your things. Try putting aside the clothes you want to wear. That way in the morning you won’t waste time trying to figure out what you’re going to wear and won’t cause you to lose time. Place all the items you’ll be taking in your bag or backpack so in the morning you won’t have to worry about doing so. Once you have everything ready, before going to sleep, set an alarm at a time where you’ll have enough time to get ready and be on time for your first day of classes.

Prepare your things!
Prepare your things!

For your first day, it’s not necessary to pack all your materials, just try packing the basic items such as a pen, pencil, and something to write on. Don’t take all your materials like your books. Most professors don’t ask for everything since it’s the first day. There, they will let you know the materials you’ll need for the next time you meet.

Get your materials ready!

The day before, make sure you have a secure transportation. If you have a car, place your keys somewhere you won’t forget. Sometimes in the morning when you’re in a hurry you forget where you place things. If you place them where you can easily spot them, you can just get them and go. If you don’t have a car, find someone that can give you a ride. You can ask a friend if or a family member to give you a ride. If it’s not possible, call a taxi and they’ll gladly take you.

If it’s going to be your first day of college and you don’t know how or what to prepare, don’t stress. Try to prepare your stuff the night before, pack your basic materials, and have a secure transportation. If you follow this advice you’ll be ready for your first day of college.
