A great pair of sunglasses - not just stylish, make sure they WORK!
Your cutest swimsuit
A fluffy beach towel and beach tote
A good pair of shorts for every day
Your best knit dress for evening - comfy, stylish, and easy to keep unwrinkled
Comfy PJ pants
- they also work well for that 4am trip to Waffle House
Sandals and flip flops
A jacket - it can get chilly at night!
A hat - for when the sunglasses just won't cut it
Bring your student ID - student discounts can be found EVERYWHERE.
Save on drinks by trying local brews.
Travel on off days and at off times. Hotels and flights are much cheaper.
Buy food from the grocery store and cook instead of eating out.
Travel with friends at all times. Arrive together, leave together.
Have a "safe" word or phrase to use when you become uncomfortable.
Limit drinking. Never let your drink out of your sight.
Bring insurance cards in case someone gets hurt or sick.
Prevent theft by leaving valuables at home and keeping wallets and purses out of sight at all times.
