You are going to have a lot of lists thrown at you during Camp War Eagle, and those lists are going to tell you about all sorts of things you need to buy for your dorm.
As someone who lived in a dorm all of my freshman year, some of the stuff they said would be vital I did not touch until I threw it into the trash on move out day. Here’s some stuff that you truly will need.
A Good Fan
You do not have to go out and buy a fancy bladeless Dyson fan, but depending on the dorm you end up in, a fan is a necessity for some of the older dorms.
A fan will help a lot with keeping the room cool during those hot days, and when it gets cold, a fan can help keep the room from being stifling with the heater blasting.
One of the mainstays of a college students’ dorm is the microwave, so it’s a good idea to get a couple of different size bowls that are microwave safe.

Having the different sizes allows flexibility with what you can make in your microwave, whether it is rice, ramen or rigatoni.
Now it may seem like a simple and obvious thing to say, but at Auburn, toilet paper has a big use outside of the bathroom.
Every time an Auburn sports team wins a home game, Tiger fans will march down to Toomer’s Corner and cover the trees
And after football games, every store is going to be sold out by the time you get out of the student section and down to the corner of College and Magnolia.
Make sure to get yourself some cheap stuff so you get more bang for your buck.
