There are definite perks to going to school in the middle of nowhere: A healthy on-campus party scene, a close-knit class with abundant school spirit, serene focus for the sake of learning...the list goes on. But the downside? Once you’re there, you’re really there. Being a little forgetful while packing isn’t an "oops" moment, it’s more like an "I guess I have to go the whole semester without real sheets" moment.Because we care — and we don't want you to suffer such a fate — we made a list of reminders for that very last run to Target (or wherever you like to go for your basic needs) before you pack up the van and head to your idyllic campus. Grab these oft-forgotten essentials so you aren’t stuck with mismatched sheets donated by friends that did plan ahead.
