And Remember...

Do not wait until the last minute to purchase the things you need. It's much easier to buy everything back home and bring it here. That way, you won't have to fit a shopping excursion into Orientation Weekend.

Be sure to check with your roommate because you will not need two of everything on this list.

Also, Hope is no longer supplying mattress pads with the rooms. If you would like one, please bring it with you!
