Going to a California school has obvious perks—great weather, great diversity, and great opportunities. Still, there's another perk that's often overlooked too…great fashion! Stanford students have great style, and the Stanford apparel definitely reflects that by offering beachy pieces designed by Hurley and preppy outfits by Brooks Brothers. But dannnngg are the prices can be steep! Fortunately, HerCampus has compiled a list of 7 items of clothing that won't empty your wallet.

Talk talk talk talk talk. Geminis can talk for days. At each discussion section and dorm meeting you charm people with your verbosity that you pride as one of your greatest qualities. But in the spirit of fall, think about turning a new leaf and working on your listening skills. Maybe if you try limiting your input to just one comment, it might come out as a real "gem" and impressive everyone in the room.
