We're busily packing my son for fall move in. We're from CT and will be flying my son down, so we'll be mostly packing clothes and personal items and going to Target/Walmart when we get there.
At orientation and at the housing web site, there's a whole list of suggested things to bring. From what I've also read, special emphasis should be put on Extension cords and power strips. And from what I'm told, an Ethernet cable is a must have as wireless is spotty.
This got me to wondering... What are the items that aren't on the list? What items did you bring to college and figure out: "well I really didn't need that" and what things did you get there and say: "I can't believe I didn't bring one of those!"
