Hey all,

As the beginning of the new school year fast approaches, I thought I would let you all know about the five necessities that made my freshman year living in the dorms much more enjoyable.

  1. Reusable water bottles. These were a lifesaver, shuffling across campus I always had water with me. Plus they are reusable and less wasteful than plastic water bottles.
  2. A mattress pad. Trust me, this will make your dorm bed soooo much comfier.
  3. An umbrella. Last year, at least it rained ALOT. So be smart and bring an umbrella!
  4. Clorox Wipes. If you do not want to get sick, stock up on these all-purpose wipes for your room. They smell great and keep your space germ-free.
  5. Download a flashcard app to help make studying easier. I love Flashcards+ because it is free and so easy to use. Whenever I had a free moment, I would pull out my phone and get some extra study time in.

Thanks for reading!
