Portland Student Survival Guide 2010: The List of Lists

The real back-to-school guide
By PORTLAND PHOENIX STAFF  |  August 31, 2010

It's back-to-campus time. You've got shopping lists, book lists, syllabi, rosters, and Facebook. Who would possibly think you could handle more lists? We would, that's who. We at the Portland Phoenix set a high standard for our readers' performance, and that involves giving you more information than you can possibly handle. Kinda like college.

READYour phone needs this list: Emergency contacts for new-in-town students
But this stuff, we swear, is info you won't stare at blankly and wonder whether you'll ever use it in your adult life. Our lists you can walk right out the door and use right now, no questions asked, no studying required. Some of these lists, we dare say, you might actually memorize. Not because we said so, but because you'll realize how important they are. (Feel free to use assistive technology — we even included a list of useful numbers to put in your phone's contact list.)

The basic point is: If you want to know it, it's on one of our lists. If it's not here, you don't need to know. Tell that to your profs at exam time.
