KXSU’s Back to School Scenario Playlist

And just like that, our Seattle summer has come to an end. Goodbye to home-cooked meals, hello to The Cave’s hot foods menu! To celebrate the beginning of the school year, our reporting staff at KXSU decided to put together a back-to-school scenario playlist. Did a professor annoy you on the first day? Are you already over waiting in line for food? Do your calves hurt from walking up the side of a mountain just to get to Campion? We’ve got you covered.
