Before you embark on this new and exciting adventure, you’ll want to make sure you’re set up for success. Packing for college is a major life moment, and as is the case with any new beginning, it’s important to start things off on the right foot. Before you hit the road, there are quite a few things you’ll want to account for. Packing is no small feat, so we created this detailed checklist to help make sure you’re set up for success when you arrive on campus.

Remember, failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Be sure to put your best foot forward before you head to campus, and be sure to tick through the items above before packing up the car. You’ll thank us later!
