You will most likely have less space in your college room than you do at home, you will probably be sharing your room, and you have limited space in suitcases and boxes to transport all your belongings. Before move-in, do a serious wardrobe clean-out (but don’t forget to bring some business clothes for possible interviews or fancy dinners). As much as possible, stick to the essentials.
At the beginning of your freshman year, you cannot afford to close yourself off from opportunities. Say yes to the campus events that get you out of your room. Say yes to the rich faith life Catholic University offers. Say yes to invitations to join people for lunch or to participate in service. You might not remember everyone you talk to, but you never know where you might meet your future best friend, or even significant other. If only you say yes.
Catholic University is in a metropolitan city, in which you will have access to plenty of stores which sell whatever you need for residence hall life. You're just a metro ride away from all that DC has to offer. Perhaps even the Pryz Market, the convenience store on campus, or other campus housing resources have what you are looking for.
Lofting your bed higher off the ground can be surprisingly practical. It gives you extra storage space for boxes, laundry baskets, and more. If lofted on the highest setting, even the dresser that comes with your room fits right underneath.
Designate time each day or week for activities like prayer, studying, service, fun events, and exercising, apart from your other responsibilities. For example, set aside each morning for a quick workout at the Kane Fitness Center and each Thursday night for Adoration. Incorporate important activities into your routine early on so that they become normal for you.
