When I went to college in 1990, the must-have items included a cute shower pail for the communal bathroom, a Velcro shower wrap from Victoria’s Secret, a cute comforter and some extra-long sheets. (Why are the dorm beds all extra long?)
We didn’t bring a computer or phone – cell or otherwise. I do think I brought an electric typewriter. (Do dorms even bother with landlines anymore?)
My sister-in-law is heading off to Florida State University this fall and she will be taking an Apple laptop, an iPad and a cell phone. I am so worried about her laptop and iPad being stolen. Can you put a LoJack on those things? How do you protect those items in a dorm room? Heavy safe in the closet?
What are the must-haves for college now and how do you protect your expensive electronics from being stolen – not necessarily by intruders but even by roommates and their friends? Is that a concern?
