We are about to step into the new school year, chances are that some of the students are making some preparations for this back to school season.
Except for the excitement to see friends and teachers, worries about their classes and exams, or pleasures to choosing school and dormitory supplies, the most pressure is how to ensure the students’ health and safety on account of the COVID-19 pandemic uncertainty.
Below are some suggestions on back to school preparation for this semester:
Vaccination is currently the leading public health prevention strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Promoting vaccination can help schools safely return to in-person learning as well as extracurricular activities and sports.
Stock up on protective products
- Wearing Masks: Masks should be worn indoors by all individuals who are not fully vaccinated. Consistent and correct mask use by people who are not fully vaccinated is especially important indoors and in crowded settings, when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
- Disinfecting wipes: Studies have found that the virus can live on surfaces. Make sure to sanitize your classroom, and wipe down yourdevices like their laptop after each use.
College offers us the opportunities to improve our ability to study, but also cultivates our independence, balancing the academic and social demands of college can be a challenge for even the most diligent student. So it is necessary to make a new schedule for the new semester.
If you feed up with finding your schedule all around your dorm room, and lost them many times. Don’t worry, there are plenty of digital tools designed for students, and a little organization can go a long way in making sure time is used wisely. Smartphone apps and tools can help students limit time on entertainment and social media and keep study schedules on track.
For incoming campus-bound freshmen, furnishing your dorm room is pretty much a crash course in small-space, communal living. And since it's a space you'll be making a lot of memories in, making sure you've got the best organizing products and decorative touches is an essential way to make it feel instantly like home. Here we round up some dorm room essentials or must-have furniture for reference:
For college students, the bed is a focal point in their dorms not just for sleeping, but for studying and watching Netflix. You’ll need a comforter and pillows to start, but you probably have those on your bed at home already. You'll also need to grab a set of sheets. Keep in mind that most dorm room beds are Twin XL, which means your regular twin size sheets from home will be too short.
You may also want to invest in a few other essentials to upgrade your potentially low-quality dorm mattress and make sure you'll be getting a good night's sleep in your dorm. If you are at all concerned about comfort, a mattress pad and some throw blankets should do the trick.
Bedding of Society6 includes lightweight, warm Comforters, pillow shams made of the natural fiber cotton or soft, premium microfiber, which induce sweet, sweet sleep and take your bedding to the next level.
You’ll most likely spend most of your time in your dorm in your bed. You want everything within arms-reach, so you never, ever have to move from your napping position, but you don’t want your devices sprinkled all about your bed.
WLIVE C table with USB ports is a perfect choice for your dormitory. Grab this bedside organizer to hold your books, phone, noise-canceling headphones, and other bedtime necessities. This is also a great place to attach your charger hookup so you can seamlessly plug in your phone at night, every night without fail.
The best desks for students don’t have to be all small. Some students have more space in their rooms and, therefore, more study space.

This minimalist design and decoration in simple black lines will accentuate your study space and give it a special atmosphere to improve your concentration levels.
