Top 7 Things Every Freshman Needs
- No. 3 Lead Pencil
This may seem like a no brainer, but not only are these good to write with, they can be stuck in the ear canal, eraser first, as a way to block out your upstair neighbors’ 4 a.m. band practice.
- A portable cellphone charger
This is useful for the required freshman intro courses that you will inevitably spend 100% of on your phone.
- A parakeet
Commonly used by 19th century miners to test air toxicity, the parakeet has become an essential safety device for any dorm that contains more than one college level athlete.
- A guitar
For 4 a.m. band practice.
- 60 dollars cash
Even though your friend Chad says that cryptocurrency is the way of the future, having physical cash at your disposal never hurt anyone.
- Your wits
Important, but commonly left at home, your wits will come in handy when helping you
realize that maybe pre-med wasn’t the way to go.
- A bottle of 2013 Jadot Clos de la Roche
For your professor when you get an A- but REALLY need that A to get into the grad school that you’re totally going to apply for. A cheap Nappa Valley cab sav should do the trick for professors who prefer the softer California grape.
