There's so much more to college than just attending classes. You’ve got dorm life and campus events. During the day, you could be hanging out on the quad with your besties, and at nights, you’re having milkshakes at a diner. It's a new experience you'll embrace to the fullest and remember forever, which is why you’re in need of some Instagram captions for college life pics.

Just like a good syllabus, you'll want to be prepared for what's to come next semester. That means having the right college captions that work with just about any picture that's Instagram-worthy. Every day can be different. You could have a lecture, lunch at your favorite cafe, and then a study group in the library all within the span of 24 hours. The next day could be filled with going to a club fair and hanging out with your suitemates for hours watching movies. You never know what fun will happen on campus, and you want to be prepared with the best college life quotes.

Considering you have enough work on your plate between the papers and lectures to attend, make your life easier by using a caption for college memories from this list we carefully curated for you below. All you need to do is find the right caption to pair with your memory, and you’re all set.
