You need a crock pot and recipie book for it. With that you'll never have to eat ramen unless you want to.

I'd also leave the underwear. Let it dangle, the breeze will do you good.

And a bra :laugh:

I was thinking about this too, but with all of the other crap I'm bringing, I'm very concerned about space. O_O
If space is a problem, then don't bring half of that crap from home. There's a place around most colleges where you can buy food and basic supplies.

Do you have any idea how expensive it is?

How expensive what is? Just go to Walmart man, I bet there isn't a college in the country that doesn't have a walmart within a few miles. If you don't have a car, just make friends with the person with a car. Easy peasy.

The closest one is about six miles. Besides, I don't shop at Wal Mart.

The way I understand it, the American tertiary education system is expensive enough as it is without going to Wal-Mart (I feel dirty just typing that name... ) and buying things you already own like clothing.

Wild guess here, but any campus accomodation that does not have readily available first-aid kits is likely in breach of health and safety regulations so I wouldn't bother taking that... unless it doesn't provide them in which case I'd seek accomodation elsewhere.

Taking even a single semester's worth of food, soft drinks, toilet paper and stuff like that is a waste of space. Things like that cost the same regardless of where you buy them. The only time they are cheaper is when you buy them in bulk but then you have to weigh up whether saving a few cents is worth it to have a cramped study space which will effect your grades.

If American universities and colleges don't give you a student discount for the on-campus purchase of basic student supplies like notebooks and pens then I don't know what to say... other than that I'm pretty sure you'll only need one stapler.

There should be somewhere else on campus you can go to play a game of chess or cards (or AD&D, Monopoly or any other non-computer game you could name) and if that's something you enjoy and plan on doing often it's a great way to make friends. It's certainly better than bringing your own and having no-one to play with. You can always buy a cheap deck of cards if you really need them and if you find yourself really, really wishing you had brought your own chess set you could always get your parents to send it to you (assuming it's not one of those solid marble boards with solid gold and silver pieces that would cost a fortune in shipping and will get melted down and sold for noodle money by your room-mate).

Why would universities give students a discount on things they know they will need to purchase? That isn't very capitalistic...

Plasters?

As for the food and drinks, guys, it's enough for a small fridge. It's not a year's supply. I'm going to eat at the mess hall, but if I'm hungry at night...

For a moment I thought you were planning to lug all that around with you every day, but then I remembered that it's de rigueur for Americans to live on-campus when they go to college.

Because all I ever took to uni was a bag, a foolscap file with paper, a pencilcase with a two pens, a (mechanical) pencil, a calculator and an eraser. No textbooks because I never bought or used any of them.

Pfft, we never got that. The co-op was supposedly low-priced but it could only have been cheaper by a matter of cents.
