Off to College, Sol Republic Tracks Air Wireless Headphones Giveaway- EXPIRED

This weekend we moved my oldest daughter back into the dorm for her last year of college. I can't believe it was only 3 years ago that she was the nervous freshman heading off to school, and now she was the senior helping the freshmen move in...and from what she tells me they all brought way too much of all the wrong stuff! Some of these kids had enough stuff to furnish a 2 bedroom apartment, and they're squeezing it into 1 small dorm room!

It's hard to know just what your child needs when they go away to college for the first time. In most cases, less is more. The best tip I can give you is to keep it simple. Everything you move in, you have to move out again, and somehow, they always have more things at the end of the year than they started with, so save yourself the hassle of moving way too much stuff.

One thing that we have found is really important to a happy dorm life is a good pair of headphones. It really helps to eliminate disputes over what music to listen to, and sometimes helps to give a sense of peace and retreat in this new world full of new noise.

The Sol Republic Tracks Air are perfect not only because of the exceptional sound, but also because of the freedom of no cords. They have Bluetooth technology. You can dance all over to every jam, without disturbing anyone and without getting tied up in the wires! Along with not having wires to worry about, one of my favorite things about these headphones is just how comfortable they are. I've had some headphones that feel like they are squeezing my brains in, but not these! These really feel and sound great, and if you're going to be wearing them a lot for taking online lectures, or just chilling in the dorm, they need to feel good!

Sol Republic is so awesome, that they are giving away a free pair of Tracks Air to 1 reader. Just enter in the form below. Please keep in mind, that you can only win from Sol Republic once every 6 months. They just want to keep it fair and spread the love.

If you can't wait to get a pair for yourself, or your favorite college student, they are available at Best Buy.

  9. I really have no idea since I didn't go off to college. I guess it would be to study. College is much harder than high school and requires actual work to get through. thank you!

  13. My best tip for new college students is what I was told the first week I was in school - you can spend your time on 3 things, school, fun, and sleep. You probably will need to minimize one of those to do better on the other two.

  25. Check Amazon to see if you can save money buying used books. I saved nearly a thousand dollars buying the majority of my books used online instead of the school bookstore, but you also have to be careful that you get the correct versions you need. If you are a new student, check out Student Prime on Amazon.
