Are you dreading the reality of spending your summer months on campus? Are you wishing you could spend the next few months tanning on a beach somewhere? Ah well, if you’re stuck in the dorms you might as well make them the most comfortable place to spend your time on campus. Here are some awesome additions for your dorm room.
No one likes to sleep with the sun shining in their eyes, and since the shades provided by your university probably aren’t getting the job done, a nice set of blackout curtains is just what you need for those late morning wake ups. Make a statement with bright colors and patterns that accentuate your color scheme or room design.
Available at Walmart – $31
2 – Clip Fan
Nothing is nicer on a sticky, hot summer day than a cool breeze, especially if that breeze is capable of following you around your dorm (and even to the library). The dorms can get very hot in the summer months, so investing in a portable clip on fan is a fantastic idea.
3 – A super annoying alarm clock.
Summer is a good time to catch up on your sleep, unless you’ve got a 9 AM class across campus. Since you’re probably used to sleeping through the morning during June, July and most of August you might need an extra boost to wake you up. The Sonic Grenade alarm or Clocky, the alarm that runs away and hides, might be the perfect solution. Check out a complete list of annoying alarms here.
Don’t waste your free time doing laundry this summer. Leave your weekends free for a spur of the moment trip to the beach or at least some time relaxing on the deck of your school’s outdoor pool (wait, schools have those). Cut down on the time it takes you to get your laundry done with these hassle free detergent sheets.

5 – Five Star Flex Hybrid NoteBinder
Do you really want to lug around 50 pounds of books and notes under the summer sun? Do you plan to take a lot of weekend trips to some exotic locations (I could be convinced to include the library) during your summer term? Than you need this notebook to store all of your homework and keep your notes organized all summer long. Not only is this binder super light but it easily fits into a bag overloaded with textbooks and swimsuits.
