It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.
Leo F. Buscaglia

What’s work without a little play? The best part of college is bringing along all the thugs that you enjoy. Forget the books and grab a football or baseball to go try out a sports team. Or maybe hang back and watch Netflix on a new tv. Either way the weekends should be about finding what makes college fun for you. Start a video game club with your new xbox or playstation or even start a band with new supplies. After class kick back and find a friend to start a book club or maybe spend some time alone for some drawing or song writing. Meeting new people that share your interest is integral to thriving in a new place and making friends. Have a tv show or sports team to love watching? Find some friends to watch with in the common room. All work and no play is not the way to go. Bring along all the fun and games to college and make the most of your time away.

Electronics – Ranges from computers & printers to TVs & DVD players to speaker & headphones and a lot in-between. Be mindful of size, compatibility, and look for WiFi and Bluetooth to make your life easier.

Cords & Cables – HDMI cords, TV cable, speaker cables, audio cables, adapters, and extra charging cables to charge your phone, headsets, and laptop.

Sporting Goods – It all too easy to focus downtime on movies, music, and TV; be sure to remember being physical clears the mind too, take advantage of the workout facilities your school has to offer. In addition to bringing some of the sporting goods you are passionate about, think about some others that might get people together like footballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, and frisbees too.
