College packing list

See also

What shall you pack? Consider:

  • Clothes.
  • Dormitory space essentials.
  • Toiletry starters.
  • Electronics: computer, tablet, phone, other per individual preferences.
  • Notebooks, office supplies.
  • Personal items.
  • Orientation materials (names, numbers, lists, etc.)
  • An emergency life raft and vest for unplanned, extreme weather escape.

Obviously the last items were a bit tongue-in-cheek. However, do not overlook the potential weather extremes that may occur where your preferred colleges are located. I would not prefer to vacate the dorm due to pending tornadoes, hurricanes and flooding. Still considering options?

What are your preferences?
