What To Take

Left: It's a common sight in any dorm with a community bath-

room: the bucket bathroom-bound students schlep to the show-
er. The contents include the basic necessities of shampoo,
conditioner, soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste, razors and shaving
cream. It's the easiest way to get everything to the bathroom,
and you're guaranteed not to forget the soap or shampoo.

Above: A bicycle is a necessity for any car-less collegiate. Even

those who have cars on campus often opt to bike to class. It's eas-
ier than trying to find a parking spot. Besides, it's faster to cut
across campus on a bike. The Trek brand is among the most pop-
ular among students. Although Trek manufactures bikes that
cost thousands of dollars for the serious off-road enthusiast, low-
er-end bikes like the 820 (pictured above) are more reasonable
and can be found at most local bike shops.

Left: Futons are great in any living situation. The couch that

turns into a bed is especially popular on campus. The wood-
framed piece of furniture comes in a variety of colors and pat-
terns to match any decor. Once you figure out how to open and
close the futon, you may just think it's the greatest invention
since sliced bread.

Right: Fleece Patagonia jackets are

as common on campus as sweat-
shirts with a college logo. Although
the jackets were once worn mostly
by outdoor enthusiasts, it didn't take
long for their comfort to be appreci-
ated by others, particularly students.
Patagonias are great transitional
jackets for when it's too cold not to
wear a jacket but not warm enough
to go without one.
