#1 Map Out Your Schedule
By this time, you should already have your schedule for the first semester set in stone. Using your schedule, map out the most efficient route for your first week. This will make it easier to navigate campus and will also reduce stress levels as you adjust to your new classes. If you’re unfamiliar with the campus, take a few minutes out of your day and map out your route in person.
#2 Gather Your Supplies
Most professors don’t require that you have certain schools supplies and, usually, a notebook and writing utensils will suffice (or your laptop if that’s where you prefer to take notes). Head to your local office supplies store and gather plenty of notebooks to keep yourself organized. You can even invest in a new planner if you like to keep track of your assignments throughout the year. You can pre-order your textbooks, but it is best to wait until class begins to see if your professor requires students to utilize the textbook. Waiting until class starts will sometimes save you a significant amount of money.
#3 Get in Routine
Getting in a routine is especially important if you are taking early classes. To adjust your sleep schedule, start setting your alarm clock earlier until you get to where you can easily wake up at the same time every day. This will get your body on a daily routine, which will make the first day of classes easier. If you normally sleep through alarms, try placing your alarm across the room so you have to get out of bed to turn it off.
