University Jewelry with Kyle Cavan

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share with you my new bracelet featuring the Low Memorial Library at Columbia University! I’ve always loved class rings, university merchandise, and other things that I could look back at and remember my time at the university, but I usually opt out of the chunky 1980’s style, fake-stoned class rings usually sold at university bookstores. I’ve always wanted to find something that I could wear forever, something classy and subtle, to show my pride for the school. Kyle Cavan makes fine jewelry (gold-plated, sterling silver, and solid gold on request) featuring universities like Yale, Brown, Penn, Duke, and so many more.

Add everything, and you will never confuse times and always be aware of your responsibilities all at once. 2) Read and highlight texts the day before, and read only the highlights the morning before class. I always tend to miss details during class having read it the night before. This is the best way to read thoroughly beforehand, but also recalling details. 3) Make a Google Doc with a Classmate. An alliance like this is key when taking notes and studying. Add notes that they missed, and you will get notes that you missed. Make a study guide and assign different things to outline. 4) Eat grapefruits. Grapefruit is filled with vitamin B9, which is crucial for brain function. This will keep you sharp all day for your classes, and it’s also filled with vitamin C! 5) Emergen-C. …
