Hello Everyone! I wanted dedicate this list to future college freshman who might be a little confused on what to bring/ not to bring to college. This is list from my perspective when I was a freshman in college. I wanted to keep this list as short an sweet as possible. If you want a more detailed list google has multiple websites that tells you the list of items to bring/ not to bring to college. Hopefully this list is helpful enjoy!
1. Not to Bring: Any High School Paraphernalia
You would possibly be made fun of if you bring any of this. It's time to start a new chapter in your life and make new memories.
2. Bring: A coffee maker
To avoid spending at least $5 everyday from my school coffeeshop, I decided to make my own iced coffee which taste exactly how my school makes it and its a lot cheaper.
3. Not to Bring: Your own Furniture
To be specific your own bed, dresser, etc. Your university or college will provide you with your own furniture. excluding: TV, Mirror
4. Bring: Decorations for your room
My freshman college dorm looked like a jail cell. So my roommate and I had to try our best to make it as comfortable and homie as possible.
5. Bring: Cleaning Products
Unfortunately college custodians do not clean the dorms that is the students responsibly. I have experience in the past where I had to room with nasty roommates. As a result I bleached down my room every weekend.
6. Not to bring: Iron/ Ironing board
You will not be ironing your clothes that much in college (I didn't at all). If I had any wrinkles in my clothes I would just throw it in the dryer with an dryer sheet to take the wrinkles out. However to avoid wrinkles in my clothes I would just hang them up . Also the ironing board takes of space in your closet. You are trying to create as much space for other important items.
7. Bring: Shower Caddy
Living in Freshman Dorms I did not have my own personal bathroom of course. So as a result I had to use the public shower in the hallway to take a shower. I usually use a lot of personal hygiene products to take a shower with and the shower caddy was really helpful when it came to hauling the products to and from the bathroom.
8. What Not To Bring: Too much clothes
I did this and this was my biggest mistake. Because a lot of the clothes I brought I did not wear at all.
9. Bring: Laundry bag/ basket
This made hauling my clothes back and forth to the laundry room a lot easier.
10. Not to Bring: Printer
These are literally everywhere on your campus. Save money and space on a printer.
I hope you guys enjoyed this list and its helpful for your first your first year. Let me know in the comments below anything I missed on what to bring/not to bring. For the future freshman best of luck for your first year and everyone else enjoy your summer and good luck going back to school.
