Is there a way to get a specific type of bullet instead of the filled bullets when you first activate the itemize command in LaTeX? I am trying to get hollow bullets from the start instead of using nested commands to attempt to create them somehow. Thank you.

The enumitem package might be useful, combined with some package listed in the Comprehensive Symbol List:

\item First
\item Second

Dingbat items
