With August comes the change of a season, the bright leaves, the animals scurrying in preparation for winter—the start of a new school year.
If you’re one in the approximately 17.5 million undergraduate students attending college in the United States, there’s a good chance that you might be living on campus.
In particular, if you’re entering as a college freshman living on campus, you might be experiencing a little bit of confusion. Everything is frantic right now, and your nerves are on high as you leave the nest.
We thought we would make your journey a little bit easier by providing you with this guide on dorm essentials.
This is a list from me to you. It contains some of the same items that was on my list going into freshman year. Use it as a guide. You may not need everything on the list. There may be other things you need but are not included. Personalize it to your liking.
Living on your own is a step towards independence. Reassure your parent/guardian that you have what it takes. Why?
Because you know the dorm essentials.
We hope the new school year treats you well and that you have a blessed semester!
