Great ideas, everyone! Regarding the much-debated sheet issue, count me in for bringing two sets of sheets. That way, when it's time to change them, you simply change them and don't have to worry about doing the laundry immediately. Also, bring shoes/clothing, haha!

But...but...if you just change them between semesters you can have Mom wash them when you are home for Christmas and again during the summer.

Just re-read this thread. Based on conversations with my sister who's in college and the comments of those who partcipated in the thread I've made some changes.

You're a lot more prepared than I was when I went off to college. I had my stuff wrapped in a towel and attached to one of those hobo sticks...lol

I think you have a good list. The best tools you can take with you are curiosity, discipline, and openness to meeting new people. College will be the most memorable time of your life. You're going to hate when it ends, but will know that it's time to move forward. Enjoy and embrace the experience while you're there. (And don't get caught up in the party-all-the-time trap.)

Best of luck
Michael

Lol I went to college 14 years ago... I just wish someone had shown me this list back then. And specifically told me what was and wasn't essential. Of course, it really depends on each individual person. ;)
