Freshman Dorm Packing List Essentials
Big day today! Maude is moving into the dorms at Berkeley. (Whaaat???!!)
It feels like a big deal, but I also know it’s way less-stressful than it would if she was moving far away. We’re actually packing fairly “light” — there are about 15 things on the recommended packing list that we aren’t bringing. Maude figures she’ll take some time to assess what she really needs, and then we can drop off anything else to her next week. Her dorms are just a 10 min drive away.
Want to know what Maude’s bringing? We made a little video with some show-and-tell.
P.S. — Fun fact: People in the Bay Area usually call UC Berkeley “Cal.” But we didn’t figure that out for a few months after moving here. We kept seeing Cal hoodies and assumed Cal and Berkeley were two separate universities. Hah!
