In this week’s special university-centric video, we answer one of the most popular questions we’ve received: What the frack are you supposed to pack for your dorm room?!(We also talk a bit about how to deal with homesickness when you leave for school.)
If y’all have any favorite to add, feel free to reblog the video and let us know! (We’ll reblog some of our favorite posts here all week.)
P.S. There are a few bonus suggestions in the video’s description. Huzzah, super thoroughness! :D
As a former RA and Assistant Hall Director, I cannot stress enough how important it is to check the residence life website for rules and regulations on what’s allowed. It’s really terrible to have things confiscated because they’re against safety codes. On the bright side, a lot of colleges and universities supply some of the things mentioned in the video (mine provided a mini fridge and microwave in every room). Also, RAs are there to answer questions, listen to you, ensure safety, and plan programs, not really to get you in trouble. Thanks, Hollywood, for that misconception.
