Getting into a college of your choice is big step for students. But before you got all excited about having a taste of a university, a number of preparations must be made. Moving preps can take out all the hassles of going back and forth and missing all the important stuff that you should have brought with you.
It may be an exciting place, but a university is a battlefield and you need to be prepared for it. So here are some prep tips that you can follow for the move:
- Get your documents ready
Apart from all the stuff that you need to bring to bring to your campus, you first need to sort out all the documents you need to bring. These papers are important for your college, and if you forget as much as one important document at home, expect that your start will be rough. To prevent this from happening, prepare these papers. Have your parents help you out on what documents you should bring. The main sets of documents you need to bring is your identification, a number of school records, your letter of acceptance, and brochures related to the school.
- Confirm your accommodation
The first day of uni move is chaotic, especially with finding the dorm rooms assignments. There is a high chance that some may not find their assigned dorm rooms on the first day. Avoid this hassle by calling the dorm room admin and confirm your room assignment. While you are at it, ask the dorm admin about the exact location of the dorm building, what papers you need to show, and the initial dos and don’ts.
- Make a list
This is definitely the exciting part. After sorting out the papers and confirming your dorm room assignment, you can now proceed with making your “What to take to university checklist”. This list basically contains all the things you need to bring with you when you move to your new place at the campus. So be meticulous with and spend time on building the list. It would be best if you can ask your parents to help you with the list. They may have some sound suggestions on what to bring based from their experience.
- Start shopping, sorting, and packing
Another excited activity that every college-bound student love to do is the shopping and packing part. With all the things you need for uni confirmed and checked, you can now use this list and start shopping. You still need your parent’s guidance here as they know where to buy the best stuff and of course, they will be paying for some of it. Double-check if you got everything covered.
