Because constantly washing your clothes is a hassle in college, and you want to count on always having clean undies in college. Here’s my recommendation: 15+ Pairs of underwear – This should include a variety! Don’t dump all your comfortable pairs because you’re a “grown up” in college now!
Similarly, how much should you pack for college? You should plan for a tiny closet and only pack for the current season. Bring comfortable clothes and shoes for walking around campus, but pack at least one pair of dressy shoes and one outfit suitable for a job interview, networking event, or a career fair.
As many you asked, how much clothes should I bring to college guys? Pack your clothing. Bring only three weeks of clothes since you won’t be able to fit everything you own into one dorm. ( Of course, don’t use Meredith as an example as it was like shoving clowns into a phone booth). Also, make sure you have at least one nice outfit.
Additionally, what should I bring to college dorm 2021?
