If you're scrambling to fill a tuition gap for your child, you've probably considered taking out a PLUS loan from the federal government. While it may seem like an easy option — after all, it's right there on the financial aid award letter — it's not always the best option. Why? Because in 2020, you may find a better deal elsewhere.
In addition to comforters and shower shoes, your 2020 fall packing list will probably need some additions and modifications thanks to COVID-19.
Here are some things that you might want to add to your dorm-room inventory, including some obvious packing additions like masks, as well as some items that aren’t so obvious.
Sure, sheets and towels are important, but tech stuff is probably one of the highest priorities for your college packing list.
Having the right equipment and functionality can be a key factor in getting your schoolwork done. And let’s face it: You’re also going to need electronics for entertainment, socializing, and just about every other thing you’ll be doing.
No matter how excited your child is to start college, it's likely that they have some worries as well.
Yes, even if your child assures you that they feel super chill, keep in mind that they may not be able to verbalize exactly what their concerns are — especially because their fears may be largely based on unknown variables. What if I hate my roommate? What if my roommate hates me? What if I fail all my classes? What if I blow my scholarship? What if I get homesick?
