When to have the first GYN exam?

DD will be turning 18 soon and leaving for college. She is not, nor has she ever been, SA, so I'm thinking it would be a good idea to get a baseline Pap and exam sometime this summer. Is this when it's typically done for non-SA girls or should she wait? (Yes, she has been properly educated on safe sex, and was on the pill for a time to regulate her periods.)

I never knew there was no pap involved when they went at that age- I will definitely have to tell my neice! She's going off to college and is petrified of making an GYN appt.
