IreneJunior Year Film Production MajorLoyola Marymount UniversityDon’t over pack! As Americans we are stereotyped as being huge over packers. Unfortunately, this is usually true. Strip your luggage down to the bare minimum. Chances are that all the things you think you might need, you probably WON’T need.
JessicaGraduate StudentLoyola Marymount UniversityI think a good rule of thumb is to pack everything you think you will need for your trip, then eliminate the volume by one half (or more!). I did this both times I studied abroad and realized I still had taken too much. Almost anything you need will be available in your destination country.
