Shipping Stuff

Anyone know if students can ship stuff to COW a few days before freshman orientation and pick it up upon arrival? We live more than 500 miles away.

    I would contact the college and ask them this question. Many schools do not want stuff shipped because they don't have storage.

    As the parent of a child who attends school out of state, I would also suggest you take a good hard look at what your child is taking to college. When May rolls around, you need to get all that stuff moved out of the dorm -- and there will be more of it by then! My child has been able to economize on what goes to school in the fall -- make do with less, I say. Also, Wooster has shopping areas and big-box stores. Might be cheaper to just buy some stuff once you get there.

    Good luck!
