Graduated and with another problem, what should I take with me to college. Most college and university dorms have rules for large items like TVs, Radios, Microwaves. Some dorms have them now, some dorms don’t allow them, it depends on the school, which dorm you get into, and if there is enough room in the closet to hid it (HA! HA!).
- Tooth Paste
- A Pack of Tooth Brushes, it is recommended that tooth brushes are changed every three months
- at least 10 underwear
- at least 5 bras/10 T-Shirts
- at least 4 Bath Towels
- at least 4 Hand Towels
- at least 4 wash clothes
Is the school located close to stores to buy hair products and deorant offend, if not:
- Shampoo (2 Bottles)
- Conditioner (2 Bottles)
- Pony tail holders
- Bobby pins
- Combs, each type for each style you use
The number looks like a lot, but what if one week you can not wash all of your clothes. You will still make it until you can!!!! Don’t forget your:
- Coat or Jacket–Where are you going–you may need a long Wool Winter Coat. I had to buy one when I was at the University, I am from California, I had never been in "one degree" before.
You may want to know why this topic is important to me, I went away to a University in the Country, my sister went to a large University town setting, and my brother went away for a year to a University in the Country. What we took with us was important. A few times I had to make sure my Sister and Brother had everything they needed. My Parents are old, they went away to a University, but it was a long time ago, I don’t think they could remember what they needed.
The schools have bookstores, but who wants to spend extra college/university money on that. One or two pens, pencils, and notebooks that say the school name and textbooks. The school library has computers, so you may not need a state-of-the-art computer system.
Most of these items are small, and fit in one case, not all of them are for suits now.
There are other things you take to college/university, this is just a reminder, to make a list and check it more than twice, going away to college does not feel like Christmas!
