Bible College News:
Pack Light - Pack Right

Deciding what to bring to college can be a challenge. The tendency is to bring everything you own in order to make your dorm room feel like “home sweet home.” Although students have access to a computer, microwave and laundry room, other items are must-haves. With limited space, we advise students to leave luxury items behind and buy absolute necessities locally.

So what do you absolutely need to bring? Here is a list of dorm room must-haves:

Appliances and Electronics
