7 Must-Have Items for College
- Move-in day is August 31st! We can't wait for our new students to join our Simmons family. To make the move a little smoother, we've compiled a list of must-have items for college!
1. Umbrella and Rain Boots
- Be ready for some rain in Boston! Arrive to class fashionable AND dry with cute rain boots and an umbrella!
- Everyone needs some quiet time. Having a good pair of headphones will allow you to shut out the world when you need to.
It can get a little warm in the dorm rooms. Bring a box fan to cool things off!
4. Flip flops
Flip flops make great shower shoes for the dorms!
To decrease the harsh effects of overhead lighting, we recommend bringing lamps! It'll make your new room feel more like home. Be careful not to bring a halogen lamp, as they are prohibited.
6. MBTA Phone Applications
Navigating the city can be a little daunting at first -- luckily there are many applications you can download straight to your phone for trip planning.
7. Winter Gear
During the colder months, winter gear will keep you warm and dry on your way to class and when you're out and about in Boston!
