Mine is leaving Friday. I feel the exact same way as you. Just know you aren't alone in how you feel.

Hello!
First of all, take a deep breath.....
second, knowledge is power, so be certain you are up to date on all the things she may already know but didn't share with you and that way you two can chat and collaborate and plan together. Third..she is just as anxious most undoubtedly, so keep it light don't wail and nash teeth, that will just make things worse. Go shopping for dorm decorations, make sure she has her checklist, have a going away to college party with family and friends to insure a grand and loving send off and go with her to set up the place! The whole family should go in my opinion...have lunch at the cafeteria..then split and let her have her space. Call, text, send cute facebook memes...and be there ...pray..and allow yourself a good cry..you did it! She's a great kid, you give them roots, you give them wings...trust...in them and in yourself...visit...take her out to lunch...send a little gift from amazon prime...Best of luck to you, enjoy the ride.
