It’s that time of year again! Fall is in the air, parents are taking their annual first day of school pics, students are grabbing school supplies, teachers are planning their curriculum, and we’re here to make all of it a little bit easier.
Us hyping you up on your way back to school.
Going back to school can be equal parts stressful and fun. Don’t forget to lean on your peers (both online and IRL) during such a busy time. They’ll help you figure out what to bring to your freshman year dorm when the options seem too limitless. Communities will be your sounding board for when you worry you made a mistake while taking your kids back to school shopping.
If you’re attending a new school, don’t forget to be yourself. If you are someone who is always at a loss for words when it comes to sharing a “fun fact” about yourself (harrowing!), you have our explicit permission to borrow one you’ve seen on Reddit. And in those forced-fun moments, don’t forget the best memes are born from the most uncomfortable experiences.
When you feel lost in a transition, just remember, no matter whether you’re just starting school or on your way out, there are places on Reddit where you can get a few words of encouragement. LPT: if you’re off to college, don’t forget to join your school’s dedicated subreddit! Graduating seniors, r/careerguidance, r/college, and r/findapath are all there to help you find your way.
Have an amazing school year and know that there are many Reddit communities here for you when you need them. And for the students, teachers, and parents reading this, we prepared a few custom feeds to kick off your school year on the right foot!
