The "Everything You Need At College" List

Overwhelmed with planning the big move to college? Here's a checklist to printout and use for reference. Other tips:

  • Be sure to check the rules and recommendations for your college.
  • Usually you can get information on dorm lighting, size and furnishings ahead of time.
  • Be sure to check with your assigned roommate to avoid duplications.
  • If you are unsure of whether something will fit or can be used in the dorm, keep it in its original packaging until moving day, and save the receipt to return it if not needed.
  • Save running around town! Check CompuServe Shopping to order many items online.
