WHAT NOT BRING - • Your entire collection of books and movies: They'll weigh down your luggage, and you won't have
nearly enough time to read/watch them all. Pick a few favorites, and leave the rest.
• Couch/sofa and other furniture: You do not have as much room in your residence hall as you may
think. Many times a sofa has landed in the dumpster during move-in because someone has no place to keep it ... and no way to get it back home. Invest in a foldable chair or floor cushions so if you want to have friends in your room everyone can have a place to sit. It's definitely not a crucial item, but it can come in handy and also make a room feel more comfortable.
• Too many clothes: If you haven't worn it in the past year, you probably won't wear it here! You also
don't need more than one gown or suit/tuxedo. They will take up lots of space in your luggage and
closet, and in all likelihood, you will not go to more than one formal dance in a given year.
• Too many knick knacks: If your Magic 8 ball, slinky, and Legos are taking up half your desk, you'll
have a hard time using it to study.
• Firearms or weapons of any kind: This includes air rifles, swords, BB guns, sling shots, etc.
• Appliances with exposed heating coils or wires: This includes air conditioners, space heaters,
electric skillets, toasters, and toaster ovens. Halogen lamps are prohibited.
