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!
