What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

College prep isn’t over on Decision Day -- it’s just beginning! Once you know what school you’ll be calling home for the next for years, it’s time to start planning your move to campus. Packing for college can be overwhelming, especially if it’s the first time you’re heading out on your own.

1. What are the absolute must-haves on campus? What’s the latest trend, important necessities, etc?

Alec - One of the biggest trends I’ve seen for guy’s rooms is LED lights - they are everywhere. Also, some flags for a sports team that you and your roommate like.

Aiyana - Make sure you get a mattress cover and mattress topper, the dorm beds are very uncomfortable. Invest in a mattress topper.
Dylan - The mattress you get in the dorm rooms is not the best, so having really comfortable bedding is necessary. Make sure you get some nice sheets and nice comfortable bedding so you can sleep soundly.

Kate - You need storage. My hall has different room configurations, so it’s hard to determine which floor plan you’ll be placed in. My roommate and I thought our room was going to be bigger than it really is, so having options for storage was important to make sure your stuff actually fits.

Rebecca - I brought a foldable drying rack because I didn’t want to dry my clothes in the university dryer.

Bailey - I got an air fryer this year, it’s so easy to cook everything in there. I really recommend one, you can make a whole meal!

Erika - I got a little air cooler. You pour water into it and it cools the space down. It’s really nice because a lot of dorms don't have air conditioning and it can get really warm in there. I definitely recommend something like that.

Cheyenne - I brought so many pens and notebooks like I used in high school, then I realized everything can be done on a computer. I would say make sure you either have a reliable computer or access to one on campus.

2. Also, what’s something that you brought to college, but really didn’t need?

Ella - I took like half of my closet with me, so I totally overpacked on clothes. I ended up bringing a lot of it home on winter break and leaving it there, because you just don’t need it. I wear the same 5 things every week. Also, I brought way too many decorations and knick knacks - you don’t have space for that. You definitely want a couple here and there to make your room look cute, but you don’t have room to put them on your desk.

Aiyana - I definitely overpacked clothes wise, I pretty much just throw on the same clothes to go to class. Especially now that my classes are virtual, I really just recycle my clothes. Pack what you know you’re gonna need, but you don’t need to pack everything you own.

Alec - I bought a lot of extra storage bins that just ended up taking up space under my bed. I was able to put all of my clothes in my closet, so I didn’t need them.

Dylan - I went a little too crazy with physical school supplies like pens and notebooks. I overestimated how much I’d be writing, most of my notes are taken digitally. Making sure you know the balance of supplies you’ll need for your classes is important.

Kate - I brought a shelf that really didn’t fit, there’s not a lot of wall space.

Rebecca - I bought a printer because they said we needed it, there was one in my building that I could use for free. I have access to other printers on campus, so I wish I didn’t buy one.

Bailey - So many extra clothes. I swear I brought my entire room from home freshman year - you can’t fit everything and you don’t need it!

Packed for college? Check! Tomorrow we’re tackling how to establish a routine when you arrive on campus. In the meantime, check us out @ocmcollegelife on Instagram for the latest on our Countdown to Decision Day discounts and giveaways!
