College Freshmen Checklist


Blog Post Check List


Hey guys,

This month officially makes one year that I began my college career.  Doing summer B was such as phenomenal experience. However, the preparation process for classes, housing, and so forth could be overwhelming.

Therefore, I have compiled a list of items you definitely want to pack as you prepare for classes in both the summer and fall. This list caters to those freshmen who have a meal plan. Thus, there are no items related to kitchen ware. If you do need those items, consider your kitchen space, and get the essentials.

So, without further a due, let’s get to it:


  1. Bed set with pillow, sham, sheets (Twin XL) or dorm size
  2.  Extra Bed sheets
  3. Extra pillows
  4.  Blanket that you can take anywhere


  1. Plastic Tubs- Can place under bed
  2.  Plastic shoe carrying bag
  3.  Jewelry Boxes/ Jewelry Holder


  1.  Body Wash
  2.  Lotion
  3.  Bathroom/Hand-washing  Soap
  4. Towels
  5. Tooth Brush/Tooth Paste
  6. Mouth Wash
  7. Hair Products
  8.  Feminine Products- Tampons, Pads
  9.  Razors/ Shaving Cream
  10.  Deodorant
  11.  Sponge/ Wash Cloth

  4.  Stomach Ache medicines- Pepto Bismol and Antacids
  5.  Ibuprofen/Aspirin- Headache Medicines
  6.  Band Aids
  7.  Rubbing Alcohol


*Bring according to weather*

If you are coming in the summer and you will be in some place like Florida, don’t pack too many long jeans. However, regardless always pack a light jackets just in case you have a cold day.

Also, bring at least 2 fancy clothing items. You will never know when you might need them.

Bring your bathing suits.


  1. Umbrella
  2. Headphones
  3.  Electronics: Phone/chargers, laptop/chargers
  4.  Desk lamp

  9.  Disinfectant Wipes
  10. Baby Wipes

You generally won’t need to buy specific supplies until you get your syllabus.

However, something that is a go-to for all general classes is:
1. Notebooks

2. Pens/Pencils

3.  Folders w/w/o brads

4. Flash Drive

5. Back Pack
