It’s that time again! Amazon is raking in cash from textbook sales, sobbing parents are dragging boxes through dorm hallways, and the smell of hormones and keg beer fills the air. Yes, it’s time to go back to school, and HackCollege has you covered. Be on the lookout all this week for our best tips and tricks to get you through the year ahead. 

#Freshmantips Contest

We’re also running a contest for the duration of the week to win $100 cash! Just Tweet your best 140 character tip to make a freshman’s life easier, and end the tweet (so it shows up for the world, not just us) with an @ reply to HackCollege and the hashtag #freshmantips. The best one (as judged by our writers) will win some cold hard beer money to start the year off right. Good luck!
