👋 Welcome baby Quaker!!

Hi there!! My name is Natalie and I just finished my freshman year at Penn. Coming from the Bay Area, I recently experienced how overwhelming it can be to move cross country into a tiny dorm room!! This template is meant to be the all-in-one place that makes it easy for you to manage your own packing and move-in process. I spent a lot of time making this and want to make sure you make the most of this doc, so please read everything!!

❓ Why I made this template

There were lots of things I learned while moving into Penn, so I created this doc to share move-in tips, a master packing list (including all of the items that I heavily researched and use), list of unnecessary items, and everything else I wish I’d known about before navigating the process!!
