The fall school year is back in session (or just around the corner for some), which means two things: back-to-school shopping and an unfavorable amount of homework.

After practically living in swimsuits in the warm sun all summer long, it’s a given that your world is in for a wake-up call come the first day of school. Life becomes a constant juggle between friends, food, homework, sleep and swimming.

It can be hard to coming back down from that summer time of leisure, but at the end of the day, going back-to-school isn’t totally terrible—so we put together our 20 reasons we all love going Back To School!

7) You can find a whole new look for those overly posed “buddy pictures” on team picture day
