A to Z: What To Bring To College

1) This is a composite, alphabetical list of what to bring to college.

2) If you have worthy suggestions about what else a student might like to bring, please list it. If you have specifications-- like what types of bandages students should bring, or what snacks are popular in dorms etc-- please list it as well.

Other than that, just ignore items on the list you don't think are necessary and don't complain about it, because it doesn't help anyone.


This composite list is very much for Gianievve and LiquidPaper, two people who were kind and appreciative towards my effort and wanted to see a composite list. Here it is. Thank you. :)

I apologize to those who I annoyed by posting various categorized lists about what to bring to college. I am NOT spamming or trying to sell anything.

    That's a long list. I haven't really thought about half of that stuff.

    But of course, thank you. :)

    I don't understand why you're so bothered by the thought of people posting other opinions on the things you suggest. I agree that it's great that you made up this list, but I think that the addition of other opinions can only make it more useful. For example, "yes, I also found item x useful, but for a different reason," and "item y could come in handy, but you might want to think about [concern] before bringing it," are both helpful.

    For instance, you list a Foreman Grill. That could come in handy, but anyone who wants to bring one of those would need to refer to school-specific documents on what is (and isn't) allowed in dorm rooms.

    Hey Kate, I'd suggest that you ask the moderators to make this thread a sticky. Then it will stay on the main page without people having to bump the thread.

    Hey Peals, I'm in Parkside too! 6-person suite!

    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
