20 Back-To-School Instagram Captions To Use This Fall

Now that Bama Rush Tok has come to a close, it’s time to start thinking about going back to school in just a few weeks (is Back To School Tok a thing?). That means packing nearly everything you own into a suitcase or two, reuniting with friends after a long summer break apart, and getting lost on your way to calculus class — oh, and snagging a venti iced coffee for your weekly study sesh at the library, of course.  

Going back to school or even starting college as a freshman can be an exciting (and let’s be real, stressful) time — but it’s also a time to learn, try new things, and of course, take pictures (you knew where that was going, didn’t you?)! The beginning of the school year is filled with plenty of photo-ops, whether you’re a student athlete or a member of Greek life. 

Here are 20 fun and unique back-to-school Instagram captions to kick off the new school year.
