College Dorm Beds Differ From Standard Twin Beds

You might think that any size twin sheet set will be suitable for a college or over-sized twin bed, but knowing the differences between XL Twin Sheets and standard sized twin sheets can save you a lot of frustration in the long run. Before you buy a gift for the college student in your life, consider this important information about a college dorm bed.

Most “average sized” college students are far too big for standard sized twin beds. The students are much taller, and their legs stick out way past the end of the bed! But in a college dorm, space is of course very limited. In most dorms, a standard full sized bed just won't work, and this is why college administrators decided to find a happy medium, and have standardized the use of beds that need XL twin sheets.

Between paying for transportation, expensive textbooks, food and other important expenses, many college students don't have the extra money to buy new bedding. But many would appreciate a thoughtful gift of brand new XL twin sheets. The life of a student is busy, and work commitments, school assignments, studying, and labs all take up a slice of the pie. Many students want to have fresh bedding but just don't have enough time to do laundry. A gift of XL twin sheets would certainly help them out.

Many stores don't have a great selection of XL twin sheets, and even when you find a store that carries them at all, many of the XL twin sheets aren't what you were looking for. A great way to find the XL twin sheets that you want, and separate them from the other sheets that you don't, is to look on various websites. Target,, Wal-Mart, and all have internet sites that allow you to search specifically for XL twin sheets. Some sites will even let you search for XL twin sheets by solid color, pattern, print, fabric or thread count.

For a more luxurious gift to a special student away at college somewhere cold, consider the thoughtful gift of flannel XL twin sheets. Help them stay warm at night when they're far away from home. They'll appreciate that you care, and will get a better night sleep on those cold nights before a big exam, or on a Saturday or Sunday morning after a week of cramming or writing papers.

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
