Hey guys, so you might be a student joining college or you know someone who is joining college and you are in the process of packing. But before you pack everything, I have a few things you should think twice before you bring to college. I have talked to a few college students asking what I should not even think of bringing from high school when I join college,. The following things are just a few of the things I was strongly advised not to bring from my high school years I thought I should share with you
1 Your entire wardrobe.
Personally, I packed my entire wardrobe when I was coming from Kenya to US for studies, but the difference is, my wardrobe consisted of only 2 rugged t-shirts and a pair of pants. But I am sure that you have a lot of clothes. My suggestion would be should Try and divide your wardrobe into sections representing all the seasons you experience and you can swap out your clothes on visits home. There’s just not enough space for everything and in reality, you wouldn’t wear it all anyways.
2 Letterman Jacket.
This is mostly if you’re not playing a sport in college, it just looks sad when you wear your high school letterman jacket. Yeah you were a husky before, but now you’re in a different atmosphere. In fact, you’re in university now—it’s just sad. Period.
3 Really Really extremely large items.
You should probably think thrice before bringing your 1998 desktop computer, or your huge bose stereo system. These items are just really huge and not worth it considering the really small space you have in college. Consider bringing laptops, ipods or better yet iphones, ipod docks or ihomes. these items are compact and actually convenient and you can bring them to class, library or around campus!
So the ‘infamous’ Lebron James just signed a basketball for you? Good for you! If you consider that as a valuable item to you, you probably leave that and your other expensive jewelry at the safest place….your HOME!
5 Your Pet
Once again, LEAVE YOUR DOG AT HOME! You do not want you pet fish Yammstammer McGoo to die on your neglectful watch, now do ya? didn’t think so.
6 High School Notebook
According to College Prowler, most notes you need for quizzes in college will be covered in class. So don’t bring all those notes your Teacher Mrs Brown had you take to college. In Fact, Burn that chem book now!
To conclude, just because you’re in college does not mean you forget where you came from.
