With fall right around the corner, you're getting everything in order to head off to college. If this is your first time leaving the nest, you might wonder how you'll adjust to this new environment. Even though you're excited about having your own space, getting involved in extracurriculars, and making new friends, you still want to bring a little piece of home with you on this new adventure. While you're organizing your dorm room essentials, you'll want to remember the things you shouldn't forget to pack for college that'll remind you of home, sweet home.
Having that little piece of home with you will make you happy when you're missing your family, or even your local hangout spots. Whenever I came back to my dorm room and saw the pictures of my friends and family, it instantly put a smile on my face. Though, photographs aren't the only things you can bring with you. If you're jotting down a packing list, be sure to add these eight things. You might not find them on any college list or syllabus, but believe me, these are essential for getting through the school year. Plus, they'll help turn your space from just another dorm room into a cozy oasis that'll make this the best year ever.
