The 11 Best Things About Heading Back To College

Sure, summer was great and we are sad to see it go. But as any college student can attest, heading back-to-school is probably the best time of the year. After three months away from your besties and living with your parents, you are excited for endless catch-up sessions and not having to tell your “roommates” where you are going every time you leave to the house. Then there’s the charms of your campus you missed; the local food you are looking forward to chowing down on; heck, you are even excited to be back in the classroom!

While there are a million reasons to be excited about the new school year, here are the 11 best things about heading back to college!
