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.

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

Social Media in College

History of The College Dorm Room

For centuries now, the college experience has long been associated with living in dormitories. From the first university in the United States the modern colleges and universities of today, students have had the opportunity and experience of living with one another at a pivotal time in their lives. All students in dorms are relatively young, typically between 18 and 23 years old, and all of them have a goal of getting a degree in mind. It's an experience that defines those first moments in an adult life, and that helps students learn the importance of responsibility, the benefit of independence and the joys of student camaraderie. However, while the general experience has remained the same, the dorms themselves have changed a lot over the years. From the archaic and cold buildings that were built hundreds of years ago to the modern dorms of today that more closely resemble resorts, the style and feel of college dorms has continued to change over time.
