After the success of my post titled “10 Things Every College Freshman Should Have in Their Dorm“, I’ve decided to do a follow up post. Below are 7 more items that college freshmen should bring with them to college.
You will need to bring sheets with you because the dorms will not provide them. Make sure that you have 4 sets that you can rotate with.
Hangers are a must. Hanging up your clothes eliminates space. It also makes ironing certain items easier.
Dorm showers are not always the cleanest. Make sure you have showers shoes. Showers can be a breeding ground for bacteria.
A laundry bag is another great item to bring with you to college. It can serve as a small dirty clothes hamper. You can also carry more clothes in the bag than you could a pillow case.
Everyone needs air freshener. I don’t know how else to say it, but sometimes people are just nasty. Be ready to have the air freshener around just in case.
Dorms don’t provide pillows. Make sure you bring a couple of them. A good pillow isn’t too expensive.
I actually should have listed this on my first list of items. You need to make sure you have your own toiletries. This includes soap, toothpaste, lotion, etc.
Those are 7 more items that every college freshman should bring with them.
I have a small hypothetical question for you guys and gals. Imagine that your first day of college is only 2 days away. You haven’t finished shopping yet. You need to purchase a laptop, an alarm clock and some pillows. Suppose you have $500 to use to purchase the items.
What would you get?
Don’t forget the total has to be $500 or less.
Let’s use the prices on Amazons back to school section (they have a huge variety of things). I will go first.
I would get the Dell Inspiron laptop, Timex color changing alarm clock and the Dream Supreme plus gel pillow set.
Now it’s your turn!!
