OKLAHOMA CITY - Moving into a college dorm room can be a big deal for a lot of students.

It can also make some kids a little homesick.

Experts suggest creating a dorm room supply checklist to make sure you have everything you need when you move.

According to College View, start with things you can't live without, like clothes, and then move to items that make you feel more at home, like pictures and CDs.

Don't forget personal items, like shampoo, towels and razors, even though you were likely not responsible for purchasing them at home.

Then, make a list of big items that you and your roommate will likely be sharing.
