As summer ends, many of you are getting ready to head back to your college lives. For some of you, this will be your first year at college- which means Freshman Camp!
Freshman camp is a great experience for new students. It transitions you from your high school habits into a college environment. You’ll be meeting a lot of people at camp- new friends, upperclassmen leading the camp, and more than likely a few staff members- so you want to make an impression that will last, in the good way.
- Dress appropriately. More than likely, you will be playing games and icebreakers that involve physical activity, sitting on the floor, and being outside. Now is not the time to show off your strapless sundress.
- Don’t wear school gear. As much as you love your university, everyone else there will too, so make a statement with your personal style.
- Be weather- friendly. You don’t want to be overheating or freezing instead of meeting new friends! Check weather forecasts before you start packing.
- Layer. You may not be inside or outside the entire time, so make sure you bring clothes that you can layer with.
Leave the oversize bag at home. Even though you may think you need everything in your purse, you don’t. Invest in a cross body bag that you can keep your phone and wallet in.
Just because you’re at camp, doesn’t mean you should dress like you did when you went to camp in elementary school! Being able to participate in group activities is essential. Scalloped shorts are all the rage right now, yet will still let you move around. Pair them with a low back tee and gladiator sandals to dress them down, and throw a cross body in for your essentials, like your phone, wallet, and chap stick. Add a headband to keep your hair out of your face and sunglasses for those outdoor events and you’re ready to go!
