Remember those special college professors whose lectures kept you wide awake and wanting to hear more? The ones you wished could be cloned? Steven Schragis, a Tufts University graduate, came up with a solution almost as good. He founded One Day University for adults in 2006. By canvassing campuses and talking to students, he finds the most popular educators and then works closely with them to develop engaging talks that inform and inspire their adult students-for-a-day.

It is often challenging to find a backpack that is ‘cool’, just the right size for all of the school day necessities and fits correctly! Correct fit should be your first priority!
Consider this: If a child carries his or her backpack for only 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the afternoon, they will carry it for 2 hours and 30 minutes per week. There are 180 school days in a year. That means the child would carry the backpack for 5,400 minutes or 90 hours per year. It makes sense to choose the right backpack that fits well!
