What to Bring!!

Future Panthers, 

As more of you are continue to fill out your housing contracts, I am sure you are asking my favorite question!

"What should I bring when I move into the residence halls?"

In my personal opinion, less is always more! You don't need to bring all of you belongings during move-in. Bring what you know you will need, and then determine how much space you really have once both you and your roommate have moved in. You can always bring more items after you move in!! Also you can visit our website for more information on move-in dates! 

Below are some suggested and optional items to bring when you move-in.
