The trick is to take some time and imagine a typical day in your new surroundings. Think of what you'll need to operate on a daily basis, and formulate a list of necessities. While this task can appear arduous at first, it doesn't have to be. One of the best ways to alleviate some of the stress is to go with the flow and heed the advice of those that have already been in your situation. Here's a list of college living essentials and where you can find them.

The shift from high school to college living is drastic.
