The academic session at most of the the engineering institutes across the country has commenced or is soon to commence. And with that of the roller coaster ride filled with the fun, excitement and lot of study awaits the thousands of future engineers.
Besides being important moment for all those freshers it also is the time to prepare oneself mentally and emotionally as they would now spend a couple of years in the hostel far away from home. There are many Engineering Colleges in India that provide the best engineering course in India.
There have been times where hosteliers at these institutes arrive with the massive boss and the suitcase only to realize that they have carried too much or forgot something or the other.
Packing bags for the colleges is a usual affair but packing them with what is the question here.
Bringing in right items makes a lot of difference.
Not only does it give you a hassle free start but also keeps you away from all the worries that invloves the use of everyday essentials.
Thus to help you pack the must haves right items we decided to compile a list of the same
This is one of the most important items you should carry as a hostelier. Though the institute will provide you a cot to sleep in but it’s your responsiblity to carry a mattress or the bedding along with you to the institute.
Howeever if carrying the same is not a possibilty for you then there are vendors selling mattresses at the nominal rates in and around the hostel areas through whom you can buy a decent mattress.
Besides this also take along a pair of bedsheets ,pillows ,comfortors ,bed spreads etc.
Carrying both formal and informal clothes is a necessity for a fresher. While casual or the informal clothes can be used for the parties, hangouts or attending classes formal clothes are a must for first week oreintation sessions, photosessions and the allied events.
Shoes also form a very important part of the must haves list for engineering students. Make sure you carry a pair of foraml shoes along with the casual footwear.
Carrying two-three books of your choices might just help through your first year at the institute.
It is known fact that every college has its own well stocked libraary,but its always better to have a copy of your own favourite book.
Carrying basic stationary is always good like old eam notes,pencil Box, Stapler, Paper Pins, Scissor, Pen Stand, Metallic Scale, Highlighter, Tape, Fevicol & fevistick, Lock & Key, rough books etc.
5. First aid
This is another important thing to pack for hosteliers. Things like basic medicines (pain killers, crocin, aspirin etc), bandages, mosquito repellant etc are things one should have handy. You never know when the need arises.
This is something that need not be told but should be known to every student. Remember, you would be sharing your bathroom and laundry facilities with other students as well and thus need to carry things that are only for your personal use. These include things like towels, soap, shampoo, shaving cream and razors, tissues, laundry basket/bag, detergent etc.
7. Important documents
Original and photocopies of documents like exam admit cards/ admit card for which you are joining the college, acceptance letter, offer Letter, Class XII Mark sheet, Class XII Passing Certificate, Domicile Certificate (Add Others which are specified), passport sized photographs should not be missed and ensure you have them all together at one place. These help you apply for various scholarships, awards etc conducted at institutes all round the year.
8. Electronics/ computer accessories
It’s always good to have a cellphone, laptop or a hard disk at your disposal. These things turn out to be extremely important while preparing for exams, presentations, projects etc.
9. Other useful things to have
In all probablities your institute would be well-equipped and offer you all the facilities that you require but they are things you that are just good to have. It includes bank cards, flashlights, snacks for your room, key rings, umbrella, watches, sunglasses, reading lamp, calculator etc.
