take pics of what?

you have to be far more specific when asking for help.

For candids? Just walk around and make sure your camera is on and in hand. Watch for kids to be doing stupid shit.

Learn about depth of field for this type. Get a good focus on the subject as to direct the readers attention mainly to that spot/that subject.

Get them in their element, so as not to look staged.

If you are not too familiar with your camera either learn about exposures, or get a general overview and use the bracketing feature if there is one, so you get a range of exposures and can pick the best one.

Most of all familiarize yourself with your camera so that these actions come natural when in the field.

Hope this helps some!

make sure they dont notice your taking the pictures so they act normally to really capture "campus life"

To start, mess with the photo's levels, and the contrast of the colors to make them stand out more.

For taking stills of sneakers make sure you light the still life, try putting them on a background that is all one solid color. Also, experiment with zooming in on the sneaks, changing angles, and focusing on specific parts of interest of the sneaker to peak the "reader/viewers" interest. This will actually add elements to the photo that will have more than just sneaker heads lookin'.

Post up some more questions developing from here, and some samples of what you've done with this project so far for critique.

Hope this helps a bit!
