As if preparing for college isn’t already stressful enough. Toss in a pandemic to the mix to add even more confusion. Whether your student takes the minimalist approach to decorating, or has measured and prepared a blueprint to decorate every square inch of the dorm, here is a list of must-haves for every dorm.
Keeping Your Cool
Most dorm rooms, especially those designated for the freshmen, don’t have air conditioning. To help your student keep their, cool get a standing fan like the Lasko 42-inch 3-Speed Tower Fan from Buydig.com. It comes with a remote control so they can adjust the air speed and direction from their desk or bed.
More than likely, your student will be getting temperature checks before entering campus buildings this fall. However, if your child feels ill in the morning before heading to class, you want them to be able to check for a fever. Send the Deco Essentials Contactless Infrared Thermometer with your student so they can do self-checks, and ease your mind as well.
Eating out has always been a big part of college life. But this isn’t always necessarily going to be the norm this fall. Provide your student with all the dorm cooking essentials they will need to prepare meals in the safety of their dorm room. From a stainless steel knife set to prepare meals, to the all-important Hamilton Beach Pizza Maker, to an ice machine to keep beverages cold, make sure your student can fend for themselves. Especially if forced to quarantine for a few weeks.
Carrying Essentials in Style
Whether walking around campus going from class to class, or simply trying to keep textbooks and supplies organized in one place, a new backpack is definitely a dorm room essential. The Deco Gear Speaker Backpack from Buydig.com is the perfect way to organize your student’s stuff by keeping books, sanitizing wipes, sweaty shirts, tennis shoes, water bottles, or whatever they’re toting around, separated in the 4 oversized compartments. They can charge their phone using the power bank, and listen to their favorite tunes with the built-in 3W speakers.
Getting Down to Business
They’re going to need a powerful computer capable of tackling everything college life has to throw its way. With the limited space in their dorm room, all that power is going to need to come in a small package. The Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 is a sleek and light laptop, weighing in at 2.79 pounds. With 11.5 hours of battery life, this little powerhouse will make it through an entire day of classes, and still keep them going through study hall. Need something even more portable? Try the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 two-in-one tablet. The Surface Pro 7 adapts to their needs because they can convert it to laptop mode, studio mode or tablet mode. Your student can use its USB-C or USB-A ports to connect to displays, charge accessories or to insert a Sandisk Cruzer flash drive to save important school papers!
Sending your child off to college with these dorm room essentials will set them up with what they need to succeed. It will also help to give you peace of mind that they are safe and comfortable.
