IF YOU'RE A STUDENT HEADING BACK TO SCHOOL--AND TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET ALL YOUR STUFF THERE--DON'T PANIC.  IF YOU'RE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL BY BUS, TRAIN, OR PLANE, IT CAN SEEM LIKE AN OVERWHELMING HASSLE, TO GET EVERYTHING THERE.  BUT, ACCORDING TO FEDEX, SHIPPING MAY BE THE SOLUTION.  JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU CONTACT YOUR SCHOOL, TO FIND OUT THE CORRECT DELIVERY-ADDRESSES--AND THE EARLIEST TIME WHEN YOUR PACKAGES CAN BE RECEIVED.  NEXT, CHOOSE THE THINGS THAT YOU'LL NEED IMMEDIATELY--AND THOSE THAT YOU CAN LIVE WITHOUT FOR A WEEK.  OR, PLAN AHEAD AND SHIP EARLY--SO THAT EVERYTHING WILL GET THERE, ON TIME.  FEDEX GROUND SAVES YOU MONEY--AND GETS YOUR THINGS THERE, IN ONE TO FIVE BUSINESS-DAYS.  ALSO, MAKE SURE THAT YOU PACK YOUR THINGS WITH A TWO-INCH CUSHION OF PADDING, AROUND THE ENTIRE INSIDE OF THE BOX.  IN ADDITION, YOU SHOULD SEAL YOUR BOXES, WITH PRESSURE-SENSITIVE PLASTIC-TAPE THAT'S AT LEAST TWO-INCHES WIDE.  AND, DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP:  YOU CAN VISIT ONE OF THE 19-HUNDRED FEDEX OFFICE LOCATIONS, AROUND THE COUNTRY.  THEY MAKE PACKING AND SHIPPING YOUR WAY BACK TO SCHOOL EASIER THAN MAKING IT TO THAT EIGHT-A-M CLASS.  FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT "FEDEX"-DOT-COM.
