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. Maybe you have a favorite stuffed animal that you've had for years or a favorite blanket or a favorite poster.

Is it family pictures that would help? Is it a favorite song? Anything that helps make you feel at home would be a good thing to include when getting things ready to take to your new dorm or college apartment.
