Notes
1
!!!
Shower caddy
This is the exact shower caddy that I use on a daily basis. I would suggest getting one made of quick drying material rather than hard plastic so it doesn’t mold
2
!!!
Shower Shoes
I personally use foam Birkenstocks which I already owned, but these are a more affordable option which my friends use and they totally work too!
3
!!!
Nail Clipper/Nail File
Hopefully you already own these items and don’t need to purchase them
4
!!!
Shampoo and Conditioner
Personal preference!! The only thing I’ll note is that many of the shelves in the communal bathrooms are shallow and not that tall (except for the top one) so it can be difficult to fit all of your products if they are all tall and large.
5
!!!
Medications
Make sure to bring whatever prescriptions you have and also make sure to have a plan for how to refill your prescriptions!!
6
!!!
Comb or Brush
Really up to personal preference
7
!!!
Body Wash
Really up to personal preference
8
!!!
Deodorant
For the sake of yourself and your hall/class mates, PLEASE bring deodorant!!
9
!!!
Toothbrush
Definitely necessary!! Consider purchasing multiple
10
!!!
Razor
I would recommend purchasing these in bulk.
Men’s razor option
11
!!!
Various Dental Items (Retainer, floss)
This is all up to personal preference, but obviously you will want to bring what you use at home (ie: retainers, water pick, etc.)
12
!!!
Toothpaste
I recommend purchasing it in bulk and then storing it somewhere
13
!!!
Tissues
I also purchased this in bulk and stored it under my bed
14
!!!
Towel Set
This is the exact towel set I purchased for use at school. I would recommend having two bath towels so you always have one to use in case one is being washed. I also made sure to have a hand towel and face towel. Some people suggest against having white towels, but I haven’t had any problems
15
!!
Hair dryer
You definitely don’t need a Dyson but I would recommend bringing a hair dryer!!
16
!!
Lotion
I’m originally not from Philly, so it took a while to become acclimated to the Philly weather! I really appreciated having deep moisturizing lotion because my skin was super dry when I first got here
17
!
Tweezers
Hopefully you already own tweezers and don’t need to purchase them. I personally prioritized having tweezers so I could do my eyebrows myself while at schoiol.
18
!
Perfume/Cologne
For special occasions or going out!
19
-
Hair styling products (Straightener/Curling iron)
I personally do my hair before going out so I use my hair tools frequently!
20
-
Feminine Products
These are available for purchase from CVS close by or even the McClelland express dining hall located in the Quadrangle
21
-
Makeup
My general tip for makeup is to bring everything that you use on a daily basis and then a few things for special occasions. Don’t bring too much and don’t bring expired products. Going to college is a great time to refresh your collection! Also, bringing a easily portable makeup bag makes it easy for you and your friends to get ready together!!
