You’ve graduated from high school and you are ready to start your new life as a college student, but first you have to move!
Starting college is challenging enough. You have a much more difficult academic schedule to keep up with, new friends to meet and plenty of exciting, new distractions all around you — none of which takes into account how difficult it is to move out of your parents home for the first time. Moving into a dorm room isn’t always easy. You suddenly have to share a small space with a stranger! Luckily, there are many things you can do to make your transition a bit smoother. The following is your college moving guide from our moving company in Central Florida:
Get to know your roommate!
If you live close to your roommate-to-be, spend some time with them before you move into the dorms. This will ease some of the awkwardness and tension on your first day in your new home. If you don’t live close, get to know them through chat or email.
Read through all of the information you get from the university.
Your university will probably send you quite a bit of information about your dorm room, including measurements. Oftentimes, colleges have their own unique bed sizes, which will be important to know when it comes to purchasing your sheets! They will also provide you with information about the size of the room so that you can make a plan in advance about what will fit in your new room.
