What You Need Freshman Year
I went to college in northwestern Pennsylvania. I walked to class in every type of weather possible. Heavy snow, heavy rain, icy sidewalks, hail, sunshine, and wind. So, I prepared for every kind of weather when I packed. Especially cold weather. If you’re going to school in a colder climate I would add a winter hat, scarf, and gloves as well. Investing in good snow boots that are decent on ice will help you so much as well.
If you’re going to school in a warmer climate, don’t forget to pack things like swimsuits, shorts, sun dresses, and extra sandals as well as sunscreen, sunglasses, and sun hats/baseball caps!
