Oh man, I cannot even tell you how much my iPod saved my life. I listened to music while working out, while studying, etc. It is an essential when you may need to get away from loud roommates!
2. Cute Comforter.
You don't want to get stuck with that old mattress that has been through who-knows-what! Thee are tons of adorable mattresses that you can find to spruce up your dorm room and make it feel a little more homey.
Oh, man. Movies were a nightly occurrence in our apartment as freshman. Luckily, each of us brought some of our favorites and we would stay up late and avoid doing homework!
4. Water Bottle.
When you are walking around campus and sitting in all of those classes, you will want a good water bottle. This was something that I was always in need of.
5. Cute Agenda/Planner.
I promise, you will want to write down all of your assignments. This will make your transition much easier. There are so many options for planners, but this will help you organize your life and make you feel less stressed.
I am personally a Mac fan, but honestly, any laptop will do. You will want your own to write papers in your room and to be able to have your own private space.
7. Desk Lamp.
For those late night papers, you will want a desk lamp by your laptop. This will give you light while your loud roommate can snore the night away!
You will get sick. I promise. Why not keep the sniffles away with Kleenex Expression Oval Facial Tissue Chevron Designs?! I personally have these on my desk right now and it looks so much classier! I have my planner right next to it in this photo too :)
9. Framed Photos.
You will miss your family and friends. Make sure to have photos that have cute frames around them on your desk with your Kleenex, laptop and desk lamp to help remind you of all the people who love you when you are away!
10. Handheld Vacuum.
Your floor will get bombarded with garbage, food, dust, and gross stuff. Keep a handheld vacuum in your closet nearby to help clean up when things get a little too gross!
As you transition into college just remember these important items that you can pick up for a cheap price at Walmart.
