A laptop is one of the most useful pieces of technology you will have in school. It will be where you take your notes because most likely your professor will talk too fast for you to write legibly. It will house all of your group project PowerPoints or your term papers. Your laptop can also be a TV when you use streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and HBO GO, as well as a warehouse for all of the pictures you'll take throughout the school year.

The best part about a laptop is that you can take it anywhere with you. You can bring it to any classroom, lecture hall, or lab on or off campus. Don't worry about forgetting a binder or notebook that contains all of your notes - because you have everything you'll ever need in your laptop! Just make sure to never forget your computers charger.

Power StripsFinding an open outlet on campus or in your classroom can sometimes be a more difficult task than your chemistry lab.

Finding an open outlet on campus or in your classroom can sometimes be a more difficult task than your chemistry lab. However, even if you find one there's a slim chance you'll find one to charge all of your devices.

Turn one outlet into four with two USB ports with an Uber Power Strip. Not only will the Uber Power Strip give you all the power outlets you could ever dream of, but they come in a variety of cool and fashionable colors and are not to mention they're affordable!

AntennaMost college dorm rooms, or off campus houses, don't feature cable. GE Antennas solve that problem.

Most college dorm rooms, or off campus houses, don't feature cable. Either the dorms aren't equipped with it or you and your roommates don't want to break the monthly budget for cable. With an Antenna from GE, you can get all of your favorite local channels. HD antennas pick up TV signals like ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox and broadcast 96 of the top 100 most viewed shows in full HD. You will also get better HD picture quality than you can get with cable or satellite without any monthly bills or fees!

The first thing you need to know about antennas is what channels you'll get in your area. Use this Antenna Selector Tool, and find out exactly what channels you should expect to get from your exact location. Another helpful site is Antenna Web, it color-codes the information based on your location. There's an antenna out there for every need!

Battery packsEliminate the stress and hassle of a dead phone with no charger by carrying around a portable charger.

There is no worse feeling than being somewhere and having a dead phone, and then realizing you also don't have a charger. You lose freedom when your phone dies, you have to search for someone who has a charger and then hope that you're near an outlet that you can use.

Eliminate the stress and hassle of a dead phone with no charger by carrying around a portable charger. Some portable chargers are as small as a credit card and can fit in any purse/backpack. There's a portable charger out there for everyone, from cheap chargers to expensive ones, and ones with multiple outlets to ones with a single outlet - find the perfect portable charger for you!

Cafe Lights

Transform the entire feel of your dorm room with Enbrighten LED Cafe String Lights. Adding these Cafe String Lights turn cold cave-like dorm rooms into a fun inviting space. Whether you drape them across the wall, wrap the bed posts or light up a study space, the soft glow is perfect for those long study nights or just relaxing with friends. By plugging them into accessories like a Bluetooth Smart Switch or My TouchSmart Timer you can control the lights from the free app or with the touch of a button without having to unplug them from the outlet under the bed. 

The stylish bulbs are made of solid acrylic that won’t break if dropped or stepped on. Not only do you not have to worry about them shattering, but you also never have to worry about changing the bulbs because Enbrighten LEDs are built to last a lifetime and will never burn out. Another defining feature that makes these perfect for dorm life are the cool-to-touch LED bulbs that don’t get hot, so they’re much safer to use.
