Ready...Set...PACK...for college!

Almost time to head off to college. Check out these lists to be sure you have your dorm, classroom and personal essentials.

Time to start packing for college!

I remember when I was packing to go away as a college freshman.  My bags were packed like I was headed off to an extended stay at summer camp. My mom had to remind me that I was going to study at school, so I was certain to throw in my dictionary! True. 

Now that August is upon us, it is time to really buckle down and pack your stuff for school.  Do you know what you need?  This can be an overwhelming task, to say the least, since you must plan to pack almost everything but the kitchen sink.  I came across the following packing lists and I like them since they are not commercially specific.  These can help you to structure your packing, reminding you of the obvious essentials, while triggering thoughts of the subtle necessities.

Heading off to study abroad in the fall?  Lucky you!  Here is a generic checklist covering the basics of what you'll need on your international journey, prepared by a seasoned international student. Make sure you you check with your school and program to get a packing checklist for the specific location where you will study.
