I'm not sure if there's already a thread about this...but I just created this account like...a minute ago...so sorry if i'm asking it again.
I'm a new incoming freshmen this year (in 3 weeks) and I'm going to be in college 8. All I know is that I have a single, but I'm not sure if there is a specific time that I'm supposed to move in. I didn't get any emails about that yet.
Ok..so I got a list of stuff to bring into the dorm..but I'm not sure if I REALLY need everything on that list. And I imagine that there are stuff students would recommend bringing that's NOT on the list. So I want to know...what comes with the dorms (like a mirror? bed, desk, closet..etc)..and what would people recommend bringing? Oh and I didn't get to check out the sample dorm at orientation because I was taking the math placement exam.
You should receive a packet in the mail with a bunch of housing info as well as a specific time for your move in.
It will most likely show a floor plan of what a typical single in your college looks like, as well as tell you what you can and cannot bring.
Last year, I was in a small triple and I used a lot of boxes and things, just for storage. Seeing as you're in a single, you likely won't have that problem. (lucky!)
I would still suggest bringing hooks to hang things on, as well as some sort of healthy snacks. Sometimes, you just don't have the time to go and eat in between classes or before a class, and a quick snack is a great way to keep you paying attention in class instead of wondering about what's for dinner!
I have a bunch of boxes, I don't know how I'm going to fit them all into the car. I keep looking at it like.. "Do I need all of this stuff?" and the answer.. probably not, but I'll use the first quarter as a weeder.
