All the Things You Need for College [Uncensored List]

📷 Comstock

That’s right, this list includes all the things you need for college as a freshman of the year. I call it uncensored because you got the control from here. Cut or remove anything keeping your necessities and priorities up front.

Moreover, far away from your home, you have to settle another small home for yourself. Though temporarily, but you need all the necessary things there that you can use in everyday work.

The easiest way is to sit relax and imagine your 24 hours (day/night) routine in your college dorms.

Some quick ideas will pop up in your mind and you’ll be getting clear gradually about the things you need for college. This would serve as a good start. Rest assured, you can always come to this page and tick those items you had added already into your packing list and find out those you are just missing.

Off course, you’ll not be given separate rooms. All you have to do is to manage in a single room. All of your mess for one medium sized room. Which is sometimes a shared room, where you have to bear one or more other students too. And you people have to divide and turn that single room into a whole (building) home of yours. Here are the wise separations to consider.

Let me break it into the building blocks of your college dorms.
