Great tip Donna! I have twins on there way as freshman. I didn't know they needed a browser! Really? Yikes!

I've heard that several times, @mindy. Both of my kids needed a router to access the Internet. My son wanted his own, but my daughter and her roommate last year went in half and shared one. I cannot believe your twins are in college! Hope they have an amazing year!

Great list for getting college kids set up for success in their dorms, Donna John ! I have to add - fun string lights. Whether you get Christmas lights or the twinkly ones for the backyard, I think a string of lights is a must, haha! Mindy Hudon, M.S., CCC-SLP
