Welcome to LIFT issue 34

Calmdown. There are still a few weeks left before students head back to campuses around the country, but we wanted to give you some time to prepare before the stress of school settles in.

Our back-to-school issue provides plenty of advice for how to plan and prepare for the academic year ahead, but also some more lighthearted suggestions for how to slip some fun into your hectic schedule.

We wish you a fantastic school year, and don’t forget to kick back and relax every once in a while with the latest issue of Lift.
