college freshman

Transitioning to college life is easier for some students than for others, but a bit of comfort is always welcomed.  College is about more than what is taught from books.  College teaches kids to become adults by providing a chance to manage finances and time as well as school work and a social life.

Life is a balancing act, and college is the first step to learning to manage that act.  Being well prepared is important.  Check out a few essentials necessary for a smooth transition to college life.

Bed risers with additional outlets are a must.

There are never enough outlets in a college dorm room.  Laptops, cell phones, and many other helpful gadgets all seem to die at the same time.  With bed risers that have additional outlets built into them, there will be no shortage of power and a little extra storage space underneath the bed.

Clip on lamp light will help illuminate any situation.

Roommates need sleep and sometimes studying keeps a student up all night.  With a flexible clip on lamp, illuminate a dark situation and get through those eight thousand chapters of English Literature.

Comfortable clothing for studying.

A flexible wardrobe is an essential part of being a freshman.  Stock up on comfortable pajama pants and extra long hoodies to stay warm when the dorm is freezing.  Also, make sure to bring plenty of under clothes to make it through the week without doing laundry.

A donut is warming coffee mug for breakfast on the go.

The most brilliant coffee mug design ever offers a nice little spot for a donut on top.  There are a couple of holes in the top for drinking and to evenly distribute the warmth of the coffee to the day old donut sitting in the Krispy Kreme box.

Wireless alarm clock to wake up.

Every college student needs an alarm clock to wake up for a class in the morning.  Late nights are inescapable in college, and it will be a challenge to wake up at times.  A wireless alarm clock will free up an extra outlet.  There are also alarm clocks that will shake the bed if the sound is not very effective.

A large jar of coconut oil is useful for many things.

Now, do not let the mind wander.  Coconut oil is perfect for dry and unruly hair, dry or itchy skin, cooking, growing healthy fingernails, moisturizing dry and cracked cuticles, and a million other things.  Coconut oil is the world’s best-kept secret.

Keurig coffee maker is perfect for a morning brew.

Even if a person is not a big coffee drinker, a Keurig can still offer enrichment.  Brew only a single cup of tea, hot chocolate, or coffee with this genius little machine.
