Give the Gift of Music
Bluetooth speakers can travel all over campus. Listening to music is a great way to unwind after a long day in classes, and it can also be a powerful motivator to improve focus while studying. Familiar songs can even help cure homesickness by giving students a taste of home.
Provide Discrete Listening Options
In a dorm room, getting some privacy isn't always easy. Headphones allow students to enjoy music, podcasts and videos without disturbing their roommates. Headphones also make strolls around campus more enjoyable. Headphones with microphones are great for gaming online or making hands-free phone calls home.
Stay Focused With an Organized Workspace
Clutter can be distracting. An organized desk gives students a place where they feel comfortable staying productive. Roommates always appreciate a tidy neighbor too, helping to promote a positive relationship with the person sharing their temporary home. Keep papers and office supplies in their proper place so they're always accessible.
Maintain a Clean Environment
A clean dorm room makes life more enjoyable for everyone involved. Of course, going out and buying cleaning supplies isn't always the first priority for someone living on their own for the first time. Send wipes and all-purpose cleaner to give students a head start on embracing positive living habits.
Label Important Belongings & Leave Notes
It's easy for items to go lost in a dorm room setting. While sharing is caring, sometimes it's important to set boundaries. From food in the fridge to personal belongings, label makers make it easy to identify an object's owner. Also adhesive labels can be used to leave quick notes for roommates.
Satisfy Sugar Cravings
Sweet treats are a simple pleasure that can really brighten someone's day. A little sugar rush never hurts when it comes to studying either. Select classic candies such as chocolates and taffy to remind them that they're loved, and don't forget to include some chewing gum for minty-fresh breath.
