We recommend shopping for most of these items AFTER you arrive.  Bedding and towels take up a lot of space in your luggage and most of the items on the list can be purchased inexpensively at a discount store.  Please try to do your shopping before classes begin, as it may be difficult to find the time or transportation later.
