It’s back-to-school season for kids of all ages, including college students who are returning for another semester of dorm life. Creating a cozy home away from home is more than just a matter of taste; it’s vital for students who are away from their families, possibly for the first time, to feel at ease. Dorm room decor can help keep students organized and focused. It’s also a great way for them to express their sense of personal style. Give a dorm room some flair with this college-ready collection of favorite things for the week!
When space is at a premium, a portable work station can be helpful. Dorm room desks don’t always offer smart space-saving solutions, but a computer lap desk makes the most of that valuable real estate and allows you to work anywhere. The fold-able tray is adjustable allowing you to work on a flat surface or a tilt and the legs are adjustable for a comfortable fit. With the built in mouse pad, cup and pen holder, you will have everything you need right at your finger tips.
A dorm may not be able to offer all the comforts of home, but with these microfleece sheet sets, a dorm room bed can be as cozy as the one back home. Suede-like softness, great durability and beautiful colors make these sheets a must-have. In rich purple, soft mocha, quiet ecru or faded-denim blue, the sheets go with any style. They also wash and dry in no time, so they’re excellent for college students who are pressed for time and don’t always have hours to spend at a laundromat. If these sheets have a drawback, it’s that they may make you late for morning classes. It’s tough to get out of bed when the bed is so soft and cozy!
Personalizing a living space is important to anyone, but to a college student who may be far from home for the first time, it’s a necessity for peace of mind.

Each set includes a plush rug and soft throw pillow to add a layer of comfort to your personal space.
