While you are away, you will not be near your primary care physician, dentist, or another medical service provider.

This will ensure your car continues to run well for years to come in the future.

Class Schedule

When you are in college you will have far more flexibility over your class schedule than you did in high school. Because of this, you should make sure that you have your classes fully figured out ahead of time. This will including making sure you are fully registered and prepared for the start of the semester.


Each semester will also bring the need for new clothes. Since you could be away from home for some time, you should make sure that you get proper clothing for school. This should include having relaxing clothing for days on campus as well as nicer clothes to wear when going out. You should also make sure you have some professional clothing for interviews or more formal classes.

Since there is so much preparation involved for going back to college, you should make sure that you are fully prepared each year. This will often require that you spend time months before you head back to ensure everything is taken care of.
