First I want to congratulate you for being accepted into college!

Another poster suggested a small frig for your dorm. I think this is a great idea along with having a small microwave too.

If you will not be living all that far from your family and possibly seeing them fairly often, here is a suggestion. Have them help you with putting together some small meals for your dorm frig/freezer snapped tightly in Corningware 'grab it' bowls and labeled as to contents. This will give you some of the 'warm fuzzies' from home, too!

When you get acquainted with others at college you can have a 'cooking' gathering and share what food is prepared among one another. Soups are a great thing all year 'round. This could be a fun way to get together and know one another better.

Another good thing would be an electric skillet and small slow cooker in your dorm. You would be amazed at what you can cook in an electric skillet and a slow cooker that nourishes you and friends too. A rice cooker is great too. Keep some healthy bagels on hand along with sourdough bread. Perhaps your family and friends will pitch in and help you acquire these simple and rather inexpensive appliances to make your life easier and even fun at college.

I think you may end up the belle of the ball when it comes to hospitality and healthy eating...

My very best to you in your college goals. It's hard work for sure, though it's really worth it to finish and have a degree in an area that truly interests you. Such will serve you for the rest of your life, and hopefully you will make some great friends that you stay connected with for decades...
