Everything feels hectic and chaotic, and for the freshmen, you’re probably feeling scared and nervous and excited all at the same time; it can be a lot. Here’s a playlist to get you pumped and ready to take on the new school year!

“Loving Is Easy” by Rex Orange County feat. Benny Sings

A chill, morning bop for when you’re walking to your earlier classes. Take a deep breath, and get ready to take on the day and make it your own.


“One Another” by Mac Demarco

This song reminds me that, even though the weight of classes and looking for internships while still maintaining a decent social life can seem unbearable sometimes, it will all be okay in the end. Remember to take everything a day at a time, an hour at a time, a minute at a time. Take ownership of your time.


“Yes I’m Changing” by Tame Impala

Change is good; growth is good. Remove any toxic energy that has been hindering your growth and hold on close to the positive energy in your life that encourages it.


“Given It All” by Hayley Kiyoko

Are YOU ready to give it all to your school work this semester? Absolute legend, Hayley Kiyoko, is ready to help you with that in the form of an amazing bop.


“Dance To This” by Troye Sivan feat. Ariana Grande

Pop icons Troye Sivan and Ariana Grande singing a song together; bopping to this while you’re getting ready is guaranteed to get you feeling positive and ready to take on the day.


“Valentine” by 5 Seconds of Summer

This song is what I imagine an amazing fashion sense sounds like. Dress like a boss, feel like a boss.

“Weightless” by All Time Low

A reminder that occasional bad days are okay, and they are not permanent! This semester and this year are what you make of it, and you have the power to make them both as amazing as you want them to be!


“Nine In The Afternoon” by Panic! At The Disco

“We’re feelin’ so good just the way that we do,” for the start of a new school year! Am I right?


“Take A Chance On Me” by ABBA

Or literally any song by ABBA, if we’re being honest.


“Runnin’” by Pharrell Williams

If you spent all summer just chillin’ and the chaos of a new semester is getting to you, this song is perfect for jumping right into that chaos and taking it on head first.


“I Don’t Want To Go To School” by The Naked Brothers Band

The Naked Brothers Band was an absolutely iconic band and even though we’re all excited to start the new year, we can still relate to this legendary bop.


“Til I Forget About You” by Big Time Rush

Big Time Rush was, and still is tbh, extremely underrated. This song will literally cleanse you of any bad vibes and give you the fresh start you deserve this year.


And there you have it! A variety of songs to get you ready for the back-to-school hustle. The most important part of a new semester is putting yourself first. Work hard and have fun with your friends, but also remember to take time for yourself every once in a while. This semester is what you make of it, so make it the best that it can possibly be!
