Bring The Things You Love From Home

College can be a lonely place sometimes even though there are people everywhere. The problem is that they are all strangers at first. For that reason, bring some things from home that help remind you of home or that make you fell comfortable.

Ikea is a fun place to get ideas for smaller areas and they are pretty inexpensive too!
