How to begin preparing for college

It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes – just getting out of high school and transitioning my way into the new world of college. You’ve probably been told countless times that this is going to be “the best four years of your life.” And while I wholeheartedly agree with that statement, I have to say that in order to make it the best, you’ve got to start preparing for college sooner rather than later. So where do you start? Don’t worry; I’ve got helpful tips, advice, and information to help you get ready for the next four years.

Moving into college for the first time
Will you be a freshman moving to college for the first time this year? If so, I have some valuable tips and info you’ll need for move-in day! Let’s begin.

Find out what’s there. Will your college provide a microwave or mini-fridge, or are those things you will have to supply yourself? You may not want to bring a TV if there are no cable hookups. Finding out what’s available before you move in will help you not waste space when you start packing for the move.

Get to know your roommate. If you are able to know who your roommate is before you move in, give them a call and introduce yourself. Talk about when they’ll get there to start unloading their things, if they prefer the top or bottom bunk (if there are bunkbeds), and what they are bringing with them. If they can bring the microwave, maybe you can supply the mini-fridge.

Leaving Home for College: How to Deal
While leaving home for college is an exciting time in your life, it can also be scary—especially if it’s your freshman year. The experts at U-Pack have some great advice on how to deal when you leave home for college.

You’re not alone
That’s right; there are many new students who are experiencing the same feelings you are. Try turning around and introducing yourself to the person behind you in the cafeteria line. More than likely, they don’t know anyone else either, and want to form friendships just as much as you do.

Congratulations!
So now that you’ve graduated college, you’re ready to move back home. Maybe you’re starting a job in your hometown or maybe you’re moving back home to save money until you can venture out again. Whatever your reason may be, you know that you have to find the best way to get your stuff back to your hometown.  No matter if you lived in a dorm room or an off-campus apartment, you now have way more stuff than you started college with. Just imagine all the t-shirts you’ve acquired from intramurals, the futon you bought just to be known as “the room with the cool futon,” or all the books you have to lug around because the bookstore wouldn’t buy them back—that’s a lot of stuff that won’t fit back into your suitcase or personal car anymore.
