What To Bring To College

jericohenheadshotBefore my daughter, Diana, started college, we were looking for a detailed list of items to bring with her for her first year away. So I put this list together which was very helpful. This year, my niece Michelle is going away to college and I emailed her the list. She added a few items regarding technology, as times have changed even in the past few years. So we are submitting this list in the hopes that it helps other parents and students get ready for the first year away from home.
Wishing you lots of luck,
