7 Quick Takes: What to Bring to College Edition

7 Quick Takes

I’m writing this on my NOOK tablet so cutting and pasting links is hard. Thus, I am going to write a post that doesn’t require any! As some of my church kids are headed to college this fall and I start back to school in a week and a half, I thought I would do a list of things I recommend bringing to college with you.

— 1 —

Earbuds. Many people like listening to music while they study and this allows you to do that without irritating one’s roommates or the other people in the library/coffee shop/lounge.

— 2 —

iPod. It’s a portable way to bring your music collection with you to go study or work out. You can even audio record lectures and listen to them while you exercise.

— 3 —

Tide pods. They’re a quick and easy way to do laundry and you don’t have to deal with detergent spilling wherever you’re storing it. Also, no need to have a separate scoop for measuring!

— 4 —

A mini fridge. This works well if you like your drinks cold or want to keep milk in your dorm room for cereal.

— 5 —

An e-reader stocked with pleasure reading. If you’re a voracious reader, catching up on the newest book by your favorite author is a nice brain break. Having an e-reader helps to cut down on storage space, which is a premium in a dorm room.

— 6 —

Quarters. For copiers, laundry, and vending machines. They come in pretty handy and it’s annoying to have to go find them when you need them in a hurry.

— 7 —

A three-hole punch. Because very few professors actually hole-punch their handouts!
