Got everything you need to start college?
With our new group of first-year Spalding University students set to arrive on campus in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, it’s a good time to remind our newcomers of the residence life department’s recommendations of what to pack for school and your life in the Spalding dorms.
Spalding’s beSU Move-In for new students is Sunday, Aug. 12, the first day of Engage. (Here’s your checklist of what to get when you’re making those trips to the department store. We’ve put them in categories for items related to studying, sleeping, cleaning, eating and bathing/self-care, plus and a catch-all “miscellaneous” category.)
Be sure to check the student handbook for which items NOT to bring or which aren’t allowed in the dorms, as well as other information and rules regarding residence life.
And one more nice resource: Whether you are a new student or a returning student moving to campus, check out our Residence Life Pinterest board for move-in day tips, dorm room hacks and meal ideas.
If you have other questions about the dorms, email Residence Life Director Aaron Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
