My little sister is 18, and going away to college this fall at NYU to study acting. I'm really proud of her. :)
My parents raised us in a metropolitan area of Southern California and I went to college while living at home, so not only do we not know anything about living in New York, but we also don't really know anything about dorm living.
What sorts of things should we be trying to acquire for her this summer? What makes it easier to survive the freshman year of college away from home? Also, what will she need to accommodate the weather and no-car lifestyle that she'll have back east?
