There are so many things that students should pack when coming to Butler. You can view a full packing list here via Facebook. Of course there are the essentials: backpack, bed linen, school supplies, toiletries, etc. But the part I think is the most important are the little touches of home you bring.
My favorite aspects of my dorm room were all the pictures and posters I brought. My favorite was my New York Yankees poster above my desk. And all the pictures of my family and friends really made me feel at home. But of course I couldn’t leave behind my XBOX 360. I would have been completely lost if I couldn’t play my games and watch movies on it!
So my best advice as to what else you should bring is bring whatever will make you feel at home in your dorm to make sure you feel comfortable.
