June 6: Break in a pair of brand new shoes

There is a great bus system set up that benefits student schedules and serves most of the residence halls, but this campus is really made for those who commute by foot.

If you rely on the buses, as good as they are, you’ll be late for more classes than you’ll want to be. And, “I missed my bus,” isn’t really an excuse college professors care to hear. So you’ll be walking … a lot. And not just to class. Everything on campus is within walking distance, whether its friends in another dorm, the fraternity or sorority you’re rushing or a decent restaurant. So a comfy pair of shoes is a must.

Of course, a pair of shoes that won’t give you blisters doesn’t just come from a factory, but buy them now so you can break them in by the time you have to walk to your first class.
