11 Things You Don't Wanna Forget To Bring To College

Don't Forget These Important Things For College


Today concludes my first week of being a college student at Villanova. To celebrate, I've compiled a list of things that are important t have in college. These are all items that either myself or my friends have forgotten, but prove to be very important. From command strips to a hole puncher, here are 11 things you don't wanna forget to bring to college.

1. Command strips

Tape is not allowed, so you need LOTS of command strips. They come in handy for everything!

2. Step stool

The beds in most dorms are high, so a step stool is very important to easily get up and down.

3. Food

Between meals, you are bound to get hungry or get a Cheez-It craving.

4. Gum

We all have breath problems from time to time, so having gum on hand is imperative.

5. Games

Forget the frat parties and getting drunk. The REAL parties are playing Monopoly in your dorm room.

6. Doorstop

The best way to make friends in college is to leave your dorm door open. It's like an open invitation to come in your room and make friends!

7. Extension cord

Outlets are limited, so you are going to need extension cords.

8. Curtains

Most closets don't have doors, so you need a shower curtain to cover up everything and make it look neat.

9. Planner/Calendar

A lot of high schools give students agenda planners, so don't forget to boy one yourself for college.

10. Seat cushion

The desk chairs in the dorms are not comfy, so bring a seat cushion to be kind to your booty.

11. Hole puncher

Teachers will not usually hole punch paper handouts, so bring one yourself.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
