What should I bring? Make your list and check it twice...
An important rule to remember when packing is that if you don't use it now, you won't use it when you get here!
Dish set - plate, bowl, cup, and utensils
Mini-fridge/microwave - 700 watt max (coordinate with your roommate so you don't bring two!)
Decorative items: photos, posters
Blue or green painter's tape to attach things to your walls
Coffee maker (if desired)
1-2 sets regular twin bed sheets
Bed accessories: comforter, pillow
1-2 towels (don't forget a hand towel!)
Shampoo, conditioner, hair products
Shower flip flops
Take a look around your bathroom now. If you use it every day, bring it to college!
Iron (but only if you use one now)
Aside from everyday attire, consider the following:
Dress clothes (for mass or other formal events)
Winter items (if you want, your parents can ship these to you later or you can bring them back after Thanksgiving)
Printer (there are places you can pay to print on campus)
Network cable (optional - all residence halls have Wi-Fi)
Camera (don't forget the charger!)
Surge protectors (NO extension cords)
