#TipsforAteneoFreshies was trending last week and we searched far and wide for the cream of the crop! We found the best hacks and tips that could help you claim freshman year.

1. Apparently you can camouflage while on campus by sticking to this outfit combination. Time to go shopping for crisp white shirts, blue shorts, sneakers and caps!

2. Hear, hear! Maybe you can even stream Netflix on your long breaks? LOL

3. We heard that you can leave your diamond earring somewhere and it will still be there when you get back. Unfortunately, that is not the case when it comes to umbrellas.


4. Freshman year won't be complete without those cringe-worthy, super embarrassing moments. It's okay to make fun of yourself sometimes, though.

5. Go on girl! Keep that chin up and dare to be different. Sticking to the status quo is not a requirement around here.
