September is just around the corner, meaning it's the perfect time for back-to-school shopping. This fall, many teens are making the transition from high school to college, or from remote courses to in-person. Because of the variety of changes occurring, the items needed to feel comfortable and confident during the school year look a little different.
Many American students make the decision to live on-campus. According to the Urban Institute, "Almost 60 percent of full-time students enrolled in private nonprofit four-year colleges and universities live in college housing, compared with 36 percent of public four-year college students and virtually no students in other sectors. One-quarter of full-time undergraduate students live at home with their parents."
Having roommates, sharing a hall with other students and using a communal bathroom has become a part of the traditional college experience, but many aspects of it can feel new and even uncomfortable. Turning a dorm room into the place you call home can be a challenge. Because of this, we have found a few essential items that make the space feel functional.
Another aspect of being enrolled in a university is studying. Outside of living in the dorms, students can be seen rushing to class, in the library or in the study halls. The number of organization tools and technology items can feel overwhelming, but we've been able to narrow down which products make life a little bit easier.
