It’s that time of the year freshers


You’ve come to a new environment, and going to the long, tedious lectures is just the start. The very least you can do is look, and feel the part, to make you at least feel like you’re learning something.

The Tab’s got you covered with our guide for what NOT to wear to your first.. or any lecture.
