College Bedding Makes a Great Gift

If you have a friend or family member who is currently living in a dorm, you might want to consider buying college bedding the next time you need to buy the person a present. Whether the gift is for Christmas, Chanukah, a birthday or a “just because” occasion, college bedding is a useful, practical and fun present for students of all ages.

College bedding can include anything from a set of extra long twin size sheets to cozy comforters. Students living in dorms don’t usually change their sheets as frequently as they should, but it’s usually not out of laziness or lack of laundry quarters. Most students simply don’t have more than one set of sheets!

When money is tight, as is the case with many college students, it can be hard to set aside money to buy college bedding. When the choice is between buying food or buying college bedding, just about everyone would spend their last few dollars getting something to eat. As a result, few students have more than one set of extra long twin sheets.

Before buying a loved one a new set of college bedding, it’s important to note the difference between standard sheet sizes and their XL twin sheet counterparts. Most colleges don’t keep standard twin sized beds in their dorms, because students tend to be too tall (or just too big) for the beds. Since full sized beds would be more expensive and take up significantly more room in the tiny dorms, they opt for extra long twin beds instead.

Thankfully, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of the right sized college bedding in stores. You can find college bedding online or retailers such as Target, Walmart, and Bed, Bath & Beyond. If you can’t find a print or thread count that you like, a good source is TwinXL.com. Just remember, you’re not looking for a regular twin size, you need extra long twin size for college bedding!

Another thing to consider before purchasing college bedding is the climate of the student’s location. If your loved one is going to college in the North East, for example, you might want to consider getting flannel extra long twin sheets – they’ll be warmer in the winter than standard cotton sheets. Conversely, if the person is in college in Hawaii, you might want to go for cooler sheet options.

So You're Gonna Be A College Athlete: How to Be a Champion On The Field & In The Classroom

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
