Your Ultimate College Checklist Guide

May 24, 2021

Starting a new semester at college doesn’t need to be stressful. Each semester, many students are able to move into the dorms and get settled in – because a college checklist was followed to make their move a little easier. Like them, you can create a checklist that will help you pack for college.

Collegeboxes’ College Checklist

Preparing for Freshman Year of College covers all the necessary to-do’s that start in high school. Many students will have their parents helping them along the way to do things like take entrance exams and apply for each college you wish to get into. If you’ve already been accepted into a college, or a returning to college, the next step is figuring out where to live. This guide will walk you through all the different things to consider so you feel comfortable with any decisions made.

Parents love you. Let them help with your college checklist as you pack for college.

Preparing for College Move-In covers all the different items you’ll want to pack for college. From bedding to storage to decoration, this college checklist can be adjusted to fit your needs.

 Arguably the most important college checklist is the Smart “Essential” Packing. This will cover not only what to pack for college, but also how to pack it. The list is broken into 5 sections; each section outlines the type of items that would go in each box, in order to clearly show how students can pack. We use 5 boxes in this checklist since that is how many boxes are included in our Collegeboxes Starter Pack.

Additional Checklists

Once you’ve finished moving into the dorms, there are plenty of college checklists you can still follow. Try these out when you get a chance.
