    Thanks Donnie! There’s nothing like experience to give you a lesson in what you should be looking out for. Good luck and have a great semester.

    That’s true, Doneshia, Sounds like you speak from experience. 🙂 Unfortunately, quite a few students find themselves in that type of situation. Being on top of things is definitely the way to go.

    This is very good advice, especially the “checking financial aid” part. There is nothing worse than going to school just to find out for some unforeseen reason that you can’t move in. I think everyone, even returning students, should at least check 2 weeks prior to the move-in date. Also students should make sure THEY STAY ON TOP OF THINGS!!!!!! Notice I said students because after the parents help move them in, it is still up to the student to make sure all the necessary steps (with financial aid and registration) are complete, unless of course the student does not care about being rolled off the roll and having to pay that extra re-enrollment fee then what I just said shouldn’t apply.

    Hi Gale, It’s amazing how much they can accumulate, isn’t it? Amber almost has enough to stock an entire apartment. She takes good care of her stuff so we didn’t have to buy too much additional this year – only the things that were shared by roommates last year. I hope your daughter has a great experience at college this year.

    Great advice, moved my daughter into Georgia State two weeks ago and preparation is the key. (She had enough stuff for three–surprisingly made it all fit.)
