Essential Items For Every University Freshman

At that instance where you’ve gained admission into the university, your heart is filled with joy and the next thing that will be on your mind is shopping but you might actually feel clueless about what you really need on campus. It is possible to forget about so many things that’s why I made this checklist to make sure you have everything you need for your first year in the university.

The list depends on your gender and your interest as a person, you may not necessarily need all of these but you can use this as a guide. I have added up links to most of the items in case you wish to order for them online. These are based on my own opinion, you can adjust the list to suit your situation.

    I just graduated college, so this makes me nostalgic! I went to school in the South, so we absolutely HAD to have a dehumidifier in our room. That, I don't miss.
