There are certain things that you will want to bring with you to school. The following checklist will come in handy as you shop for and gather your belongings for college.
- Think carefully about the items you plan on bringing and consider if you will really utilize them. If not, don't bring them. This year with the pandemic, we encourage you to only bring items that you know you will use.
- Share this checklist with others. Many of these items make great high school graduation gifts!
- When you get your room/roommate assignment you might want to contact your roommate and check to see what major items each of you might bring
