3 Reasons Why College Students Love Coming Back Home For The Holidays

 


1Free Laundry


      No more using those pesky rolls of quarters. Knowing that you can bring all of your dirty laundry home without having to pay for it is a wonderful feeling. Nobody really likes doing laundry but when you don’t have to pay to wash and dry each load with quarters, it makes it much easier. Having said that, one of the most useful gifts you can get from a relative is not cash, but rather a roll of quarters.





    2.   Meeting Up With Your Old High School Friends. 

    
      Meeting at a local restaurant with friends from high school that went to another college is always a great time. Exchanging funny stories, talking about classes, talk about how gross the campus meals are, your roommate's quirky habits, etc. It’s fun learning about how other colleges work and comparing it to your own college. You may even be very intrigued by one of your friend's colleges that you think about transferring schools (maybe). College is a very unique time in a young person's life and sharing those unique experiences is what makes college such a great time.




    3. Home-Cooked Meal

 

    Free food has never looked so good. A meal prepared by someone other than yourself and a microwave. It’s always nice taking a break from Ramen, Instant Mac and Cheese, and popcorn to eat a real hearty meal like steak and potatoes or chicken and rice. The only downside to the home-cooked meal is that it will take more than a few minutes in the microwave. You just can't rush great food. The home cooked meal tastes better and is probably healthier for you than the typical college diet.

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

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.)
