It’s almost time to pack up and head to college. Dorm life is nothing like home — food comes from tiny refrigerators, showers are shared with 30 other people and two people have to squeeze their entire lives into a 12’x12’ room. It’s not always pleasant, but there are items out there to help you make the best of it. Here are 5 dorm essentials to help your room make you feel at home…even when you’re far from home.
