What to Bring to the Residence Halls

If you are living in the residence halls, we have put together a list of things you should bring​ with you to make your dorm room feel like home. Remember, space is limited in your room, everything you want to bring may not fit. You’re probably going to spend the few weeks leading up to your departure trying to decide what to take to Findlay with you.
