Can you list some necessities to bring to college as a freshmen? for dorm rooms, for classes, for going out...etc.

WARNING: MY LONGEST FORMSPRING ANSWER EVER

Wow, that's broad but I'll give you the top ten things I can think of.
1) 2 sets of sheets, 2 pillows, a mattress pad, and a comforter
2) At least two towels, a shower basket with shampoo/condition/razor/soap ect. that you can take to the bathroom
3) A microwavable plate, cup, and bowl plus utensils
4) A refrigerator and microwave (you only need one of each per room so talk to your roommate)
5) A pair of appropriate pajamas so you aren't embarrassed or frantically putting on pants when someone knock on your door.
6) A desk lamp and a "desk set" with pencil holder and other organizing things
7) Laundry basket/soap/ dryer sheets
8) One "family appropriate" business casual outfit for something like the Block M Athletics Dinner or Dean's List Get Together.
9) A pair of jeans and a million t-shirts that you can wear with them for that lovely 8 am class as well as a pair of sneakers you can just throw on.
10) Pictures of home, friends, and posters to decorate your room with. I did a beach theme and had some great pictures of Hawaii collaged on my wall.

Obviously, you can take what you want, but I think these can get you by for a while. All school supplies can be purchased at the book store or you can catch the bus to town and get supplies at the Rite-Aid. Bring clothes you are comfortable and confident in. And my big piece of advice is: DON'T CHANGE WHO YOU ARE WHEN YOU COME TO SCHOOL. Seriously. Be yourself and emphasize your best qualities, but if you try to totally reinvent yourself it might go spiraling out of control.

Ask away. There is always more to learn.
