Packing: A College Freshmen’s Guide

It’s basically impossible to know everything that you’re going to need for an entire year. There are so many different things to need that half of the situations you’ll be in won’t be on your mind when you’re packing. Well how do you plan for that? We’ll start here, with a list of the basic situations you’ll be in and some of those items that you may be in dire need of when you arrive.

Dorm room: Bedding, shower items and a carrying case, toothbrush, medicine (we all get sick and it’s never fun away from mom), lighting, fans, seating, small shelving units for organization, filing bin (for those important documents you don’t want lost in the mess on your desk), trash bin

Electronics: TV, alarm clock, phone, mini-fridge, computer, speakers, chargers, headphones, printer. NOTE: almost all are optional with the exception of the alarm clock. You need some way to get up for class.

Clothes: Fall clothes (shirts, shorts, light jackets), fancy-schmancy clothes, shoes, socks, swimsuit (we’ve got a pool here!), workout clothes

Classes: books for class, notebooks, folders, pens, pencils, desk organizer, long attention spans (not sure we’ll be able to fit that last one in the suitcase…)

Leisure: books, movies, TV shows on DVD, sports equipment (depending on your

preference), towel for relaxing on the Mall, sunscreen.

Last of all, don’t forget your great attitude and openness to new people!

  4. Great blog post. The things i would like to bring up
    is that laptop or computer memory has to be purchased should your computer can no
    longer cope with everything you do by using it. One can install two
    RAM boards having 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB.
    One should check the car maker’s documentation
    for own PC to ensure what type of memory is needed.

    He stopped offering subsidized oil prices to his own people,
    because Venezuela was making a fortune selling it to the
    rest of the world. You should call the number of the restaurant closest to you and your order will be delivered within the given
    time limit. Their style of toppings is what makes the pizzas delicious.

  6. It’s the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.

    I’ve learn this publish and if I may I desire to recommend you some attention-grabbing things or tips. Maybe you can write subsequent articles regarding this article. I want to learn more things about it!

    This is awesome! Thanks! I have a giant box of bedding items so I am set there. I’m hoping for a giant “new start shopping spree”!

  8. Andrew says:

    Lovin’ the suggestions. Maybe I should have stressed: when at school, you always want a reason to get out of the library or dorm, especially in the beautiful fall weather! Frisbee and campus golf are great ways to get out, relieve stress, and meet people!

  9. Kristen Raves says:

    …and golf club with tennis balls. This is a great packing list, thank you for posting this!

    Don’t forget a frisbee! Or I suppose that counts as “sports equipment.”
