    The groan-inducing back-to-school season suddenly doesn't suck anymore for students, due in large part to The Verge Campus Tour.

    The Verge Campus Tour will again take U.S. colleges and universities by storm, featuring Chance the Rapper, one of hip-hop's most exciting voices. Huzzah.

    Joining Chance the Rapper on the nationwide trek will be L.A.-based music and art project Young & Sick and Sweater Beats, a producer/DJ who creates dream-soaked pop and lush R&B.

    Tickets for most shows will be open to both students and the general public. So even if you are not hitting the books, you can still go.

    The Verge Campus Fall Tour 2014 will engage students with exclusive opportunities from leading brands during the day while curating a multi-genre music festival at night, creating a full-day campus-to-campus takeover.

    So it's like an on-campus festival event.

    During the day, The Verge Campus Tour will promote education, entrepreneurship, technology, creativity, fashion and entertainment through its highly engaging Interactive Village. Students will be given a behind-the-scenes look at innovative technologies and brands while they test products, build relationships and land opportunities such as internships and post-grad jobs.

    The Village will also feature fashion brands, games, live musical performances and presentations. Each concert always features top talent and some of the most exciting emerging artists in music today. Together, each tour stop creates a fully immersive experience and a true convergence of styles, genres, and worlds – an environment that speaks to the millennials of the Verge Culture.

    This Fall, the tour will be joined by Karmaloop, the No. 1 e-commerce retailer in urban streetwear, along with the creators of MTV's The Buried Life and Contiki Vacations, the world leader in youth travel experiences for 18-to-35 year olds.

    Together, The Buried Life and Contiki will hold "The Most Epic Bucket List Contest Ever," a one-of-a-kind eight week contest to give one lucky winner an all-expenses paid trip of a lifetime to cross off bucket list items like "Design your own perfume in the French Riviera," "Ride scooters around Tuscany," "Learn to surf with the Billabong team in Australia" (possibly), "Have a beer with Prince Harry in London" and the list goes on. Additional sponsors will be announced shortly.

    We don't need to say it, but we will. Fun times head for the schools that are going to host The Verge Campus Tour.

    Ditch the books for a day and enjoy The Verge Campus Tour if it hits your quad.

    Co-eds, who's down and planning to attend? If you are a student, what's your favorite non-studying or class-related activity? And don't say "partying."
