What are some necessities(or extra things) I need to bring to college?
Being the first child that is going to college in my immediate family, what are some necessities or extra things I should bring to college as a freshman? Thanks!
Some extra things that I thought were helpful to have in college were:
-Desk lamp: so I could study without bothering my roommate too much
-Sleeping bag: this came in handy when I had visitors or when some of the organizations I was a part of during college had retreats
-Mattress pad: my college's dorm beds were not very comfortable and having a 3 in memory foam mattress topper saved me
-Shower shoes: super helpful especially if you're in a dorm with a shared bathroom

This is amazing!! So proud of you! Your college should provide you with a checklist, but Jillian has provided some great recommendations. A few things I would add are:
Towels, wash cloths, shower caddy, laundry basket on wheels or a laundry bag that can easily be carried to the laundry room, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, quarters for the laundry machines, toiletries, set of dishes, cups and silverware, your favorite snacks and drinks, bedding, and most importantly some decorations and pictures to help you make the room feel at home. Good luck!!
