Are You Ready?

I have done some research and have compiled a list of college necessities ranging from study supplies to bathroom essentials. NOTE: Make sure you check will your school as to what items are and aren’t allowed. Also, talk to your roommate and decide who is bringing what so you don’t have duplicates of items. Remember, dorms aren’t spacious!
