2. Alcohol

IWU doesn’t allow alcohol under any circumstances. Period. Instead, bring sparkling juice if you want to get fancy! If you’re celebrating a friend’s birthday or another special occasion, sparkling juice is still classy.

7. An Air Conditioner

These are allowed in the dorms, but your dorm will already have one, so skip it. Instead, bring fans.
