No... a lot of stupid people graduate from college. No brain is required apparently.

I'd get the supplies you liked best in high school to start with. Although you can buy your books before classes, it might be good to wait. Some teachers don't go with the book listed at the bookstore. The professors will also tell you if they want you to have something specific for their class.

You'll need a good computer (probably a laptop). I think it's a requirement at most schools now, but if it isn't, get one anyway. It's worth it!

A lot of stupid people graduate from college though.... so a brain isnt required.

having a brain doesn't mean stay focus in studies, it's just you become aware on your sorroundings.familiarize on what's going on the campus premises. From innocent being to modern age.

Graduated last year, everything I can currently think of includes: Notebooks, textbooks, at least one 3-ring binder and paper/sheet protectors for it, pens, pencils/erasers/sharpener, highlighter(s) if desired/often used in high school, calendar/day planner, laptop with word processor and PowerPoint, printer/ink/paper, flash drives, scientific calculator, ruler, backpack; if you're living in a dorm, big suitcase, clothes and bedding, cell phone, as much money as possible, coupons for groceries/etc., whatever you want to bring to make the space yours; optimism, killer work ethic, everything you know about writing, love of learning. Blessings and all the best!

In addition to the standard, you'll need your sanity. College is tough, and it's tougher if you aren't prepared. As a freshman '08, I made the mistake of thinking it was like high school-that I didn't have to study to get A's. WRONG. 5 years later, I can look up on that wall and see that big, HUGE diploma and I feel great Stay on your A-game. Keep a schedule/agenda of important dates. Stay focused. It's fine to have fun...just know your limit and don't do anything stupid. In every class you take,make at least 2 buddies. It's easy to not go to class-by having a few buddies, you can get your notes or any announcements you missed. Don't procrastinate! My final 2 weeks were rough b/c of it. Many professors could care less if you attend class or not or if you pass or fail. Usually when you get into your 3000 level or junior major core classes, professors do have strict attendance policies and will drop you in a heartbeat or dock you a letter grade. So...get your fun in while you can. Again, keep your sanity! It's easy to let it go. I can honestly say, the day you hear the dean formally confer your degree-the best day of your life. May 11, 2013 is a day I will NEVER forget. BleedBlu4life
