Being prepared for college is very important. You’re on your own, and it’s your job to stay responsible. However, care packages for college students are much needed for staying ahead. There are many people such as your family and friends who will help you out with these items. Attending college provides opportunities for everyone, but with those opportunities come needs and responsibilities. Here is a list of items that are good for your college care packages:

School Supplies

To be prepared for class, notebooks, pencils and paper can be very useful. Index cards are also a great tool for studying.

Toilet Paper

Believe it or not, this stuff runs out extremely fast in college. Get at least two or three big packages if possible.

Hygiene Products

These items are some of the most important products to have on hand. Soap, lotion, deodorant and anything else to help you stay clean.


Water bottles are very handy. They usually last a long time, especially if you can recycle them. Everyone knows that Ramen noodles are definitely a go-to for the college dorm room. It’s necessary to have snacks on hand, even just a few. You will definitely be thankful in the long run.

Mini First Aid Kits

Just in case of emergencies ...

Those are just a few things to start a care package. Having a care package for your years in college can help you out in desperate times. You won’t have to keep running back and forth to the store during the school year. Usually before the school year starts, Walmart, Target and many more business offer discount on such items for us college students.
