    Pat's Bio:
    My name is Pat Bigaouette. I am a Senior Biology major. I run on the cross country and track teams at Scholastica. I currently live in Somers Hall as the Residential Advisor for Ground Floor North. Also, I am actively involved in Scholastica's theater program and hope to get cast in one of the four shows this season. This summer I conducted clinical research at Hennepin County Medical Center in the Emergency room. I also traveled to New York City to pick up a friend from school and, of course, saw the show "Wicked" on Broadway.

Packing Like A Madman

Time to move back up to Duluth! While I need to be back to school on Sunday, I have not even thought about packing…everything is more fun last minute anyways. Lets be honest, most of my packing will be done Sunday morning regardless of how much I try to plan. Running around the house on move-out day chucking everything I own into my little black car has become almost a family tradition. Everyone knows to stay out of my way. Seeing as this is my fourth and last time packing/moving to college, assuming I don’t fail any classes this year (fingers crossed), I have my packing down to a science. Here are a few rules I live by on move-in day:

1) Packing should only been done the same day as moving day.

2) Everything needs to fit into the little black car.

3) Mom and Dad will follow with the fridge/microwave.

4) The family will stop in Hinckley for doughnuts at Tobies

5) Arriving in Duluth = A stop at Taco Johns

6) Unpacking should be just as disorganized at packing.

7) Hugging/kissing Mom and Dad goodbye should be done in such a way so that nobody will see you.

Now, I understand that tearing through the house like a hurricane while packing isn’t ideal… so here is a checklist of college essentials so that you can be well prepared for your future college packing experiences: College Packing List.  Moving to college for the first time can be scary/nerve-racking, so being prepared is always a good idea. Also, being prepared for college early will give you time to visit friends, go to the state fair or hit the beach one last time before you have to hit the books.

Have a good summer (what is left of it), and happy packing!
