Things to Bring From A to Z 

The following are suggestions of things to bring to campus. Some are necessities, others are optional. Remember that you don't need to bring everything with you at one time. Many students choose to arrive on-campus and "scope out" their room, space limitations and roommate's preferences before purchasing items. Along with the College Bookstore which carries an array of items for the residence halls, there are many stores in the Wheaton area. Also, take note of what items not to bring.
