1.) Make your lockscreen your class schedule for the first few weeks.

2.) Use a color code on your notebooks to easily grab the right one.

3.) Amplify your iPad with a solo cup.

4.) Dryer sheets on the back of a box fan: instant air freshener.

5.) Make a mug-full of scrambled eggs in your microwave.

6.) Become a master chef with the coffee pot.
