What should I bring with me to my new Penn State dorm or apartment?

Below is a list of items that you should and should not bring to your new room at Penn State. One thing that will not be on either list but is a point of discussion with your student is the car. Honestly, it is a hassle to drive anywhere in State College and parking is very expensive. However, if you live off campus and parking is reasonably priced at your place of residence, you will want to have a car.
