Here we’ve compiled a list of things you won’t want to overlook:

  • Get your computer in order – make sure it has the right software, meets campus IT guidelines, and has been cleaned-up, backed-up and upgraded if necessary.
  • Meet your roommate – meet in person if possible, or find them on Facebook, shoot an email or go old school and call them.
  • Go shopping – shop discount stores for dorm room essentials.
  • Secure your class schedule – whether you go to campus or do it online, don’t procrastinate with this one or you’ll be shuffling to class at 8 a.m.
  • Plan your finances – get your budget in order for tuition, meals, car insurance and other necessities. Determine if you’ll need a job or not.
  • Say goodbyes – make plenty of time for friends and family.
