    Thanks for the list! It's very helpful. Inspired me to write up my own list (taking things from this list that pertained to me) and I ended up with 85 items! More than I would have thought of

    Man, and I thought I was almost done shopping! Thanks for the list though--lots of stuff I wouldn't have thought of, but really will need.

    A word of warning about laundry products and cleaning products- some people are very senstitive to scents and smells, so you'll want to be careful about what you bring.

    Summary of my suggestions:
    Fan if you live in an unairconditioned dorm.
    Feminine hygiene products for women.
    Poncho for when it's blowing rain
    Woolite for clothes that are handwash.
