    I start college on Monday (5th Sept) and I'm trying to get organised by packing my bag now. So far I have a notebook (with seperators for different subjects), my pencil case full of things and my purse for the bus.

    So what do I need apart from that on the first day/week?
    Im doing English language, Law and Sociology if that helps!

    Thanks guys!:-)


    It will be nice for when you feel hungry during frees and most colleges have rip off prices for their snacks smh

    When you start at a new university, you'll at first have no friends, and need to divert effort away from studying, in order to make new ones.

    Or do you??? Simply pack some friends with you. Saves a ****ton of effort.

    notepad, pencil case, planner if your school doesn't give you one, any summer work you've had to complete, textbooks if you've been asked to buy them, food, water etc

    basically what you took in year 11

    phone charger + water
