A computer is a must have and you know it. It must not necessarily be a desktop. A laptop, notebook or tablet can serve the same purpose. With your computer, you don’t have to wait for your turn in the computer lab or rush down to a cyber cafe whenever your have a research work. You can equally store and backup your personal files on it. And also, you can catch some fun at leisure like watching movies, playing games and catching up with friends on social media.
A flash drive shouldn’t be absent in your laptop bag. It’s true that the school has a wifi, but in most cases the wifi is overlogged with students who are streaming on YouTube, Netflix, downloading movies and games. These activities do cause the wifi to slow down and you experience a poor connection. In such cases, your flash drive comes in handy and gives you the fast Internet you so desire.
The school is a very social place, everybody wanna make friends, hang out and catch some fun. Whether you live in the dorm or off campus, you just can’t turn off the noise coming from every corner. With the noise cancelling headsets, you can tune off the noise and give yourself a peaceful and quite environment to catch up with your studies.
This is not too important but if you ask me, you need one of these. It enhances your visual display experience. You can use it to project your desktop on your wall i.e if you want it to appear bigger. And also, you can use it to display your video games, pictures and lot more on your dorm wall just for fun.
Wireless speaker (Bluetooth)
Sometimes you just want to listen to music like old times(loud, the way you do at home) or you just need some company when everywhere is calm and quite. Then the wireless speaker has got your back. The exciting part of it is that you don’t even have to get off your couch or bed to operate it. Trust me, you are not the only one enjoing the music, your neighbors are too. It also gets you a little attention, especially when your kind of music is their(our neighbors) too. It also brings life to the party, for party rockers.
This is not really necessary but at the rate assignments and projects are being required/ requested to be submitted as printed materials and not handwriten makes it essential. At least you get to print your work at your own time and convinence.
The dorm of lodge is not known to be equipped wth an Air Conditioner. And sometimes if you live with someone else, they may not need the AC or fan. Your table fan preferable battery powered makes it easy to enjoy some refreashing breeze when ever you wish.
This device is very important, it stores extra current for you to charge your mobile with. One good thing about it is that it is mobile and portable. It can be uses anywhere at any time. You don’t have to worry about getting home or back to dorm just to charge your mobile phone or tablet. With a powerbank, you need not to cut your fun on social media, exit your game or postpone your research work just because your battery is running flat.
A surge protector
Your dorm or room is only equipped with one or two socket outlet in most cases. You shold get an extention in other not to waste one socket outlet on one device alone provided you have alot of things you have to plug in.
This is not just any must have gadget but the No. 1 and without it, the list incomplete. If you are in college and you don’t have a smartphone, try and get one. Your smartphone helps to enhance your schooling experience. You get updates on lectures, assignment, events and lot more at your convinence. This is your mini computer, portable and reliable. You can connect with people at home when ever you feel home sick, Video chat with friends and families and lots more. You can join your class group chats to be up to date, share assignments, make your researches, share your experiences and the list goes on. Lets not forget the fun of it too(playing musics, games, watching videos etc).
