Must Haves For Your Bed

1. All Seasons Comforter Set

Intelligent Design - Clara -All Seasons Comforter Set

There are a few things that stand out in a dorm room, one of which is your bed. Because your bed is a huge focal point in your dorm room, the way you style it controls the look of the entire room.

This semester, you have many styles to choose from in terms of the design and color of your comforter.

The current popular styles of comforters are minimalistic with a simple color scheme that matches the rest of the dorm room and an optional layer of a fun design or pattern.

Choosing the best-fitting colors and design will help your comforter pop out of the rest of its surroundings but also blend in well with the room’s color scheme. 

A comfy texture of your dorm comforter is a dorm must-have. Having a soft and cozy comforter will create a relaxing place for you to spend your free time on Netflix or Hulu.

There are hundreds of comforter designs available to you, so get out and choose the perfect one for your dorm room.

2. Comfy Sheets

Printed Coastal Microfiber Bed Sheets

The important part of making sure you are comfortable when trying to fall asleep is the type of sheets you have wrapped around you. Everyone has a different preference for what sort of fabric they prefer when it comes to their dorm room sheets.

The choices may seem endless with sateen, flannel, percale and so many more, but picking the right fabric could turn a pair of sheets into a dorm must-have.

There are also many patterns and color palettes you can choose from. Picking the right color palette to match the rest of your dorm room aesthetic can bring everything together, even if you don’t feel up to making your bed every day.

3. Faux Fur Throw Pillow Case

Ashler Pillow Case Cushion Cover

Pillows will make your dorm room feel like home whether you choose accent pillows, body pillows or floor pillows.

Your dorm room is where you hang out in your free time or when using Zoom during class. Pillows can spice up a dorm room’s aesthetic and tone down its atmosphere.

Your bed is the first place pillows are a must-have item. These pillows can be plushy, standard-sized pillows to get your best sleep on. 

Adding accent pillows to put on during the day will clean up your bed game and make your dorm room put together. Using mini accent pillows on a spare chair can also add an extra level of comfort to your dorm room.

Body pillows, backrest pillows and floor pillows make it easy to study wherever you are in your room without having to sit at your desk all the time.

I love to use these huge pillows to prop myself up against my dorm room wall and watch Netflix at night or read until I fall asleep. At least the pillows keep my head from nodding off!

4. Soft Blankets and Throws

Sleepwish Sherpa Fleece Fluffy Blanket Rainbow Butterfly

Dorms and residential halls can get cold with chilly temperatures creeping in from outside. Have a few extra blankets to wrap yourself in on a cold day.

In 2021, it is all about faux fur! Soft, textured blankets make you feel as though you are snuggling up with your pet that you had to leave at home. 

Calming, weighted blankets are also a comforting option. Their weight helps you relax and unwind after a long day of studying or online classes. These have become a popular must-have in college dorm rooms.

I really want one of these because I have heard it helps calm you when you get anxious about homework or friend drama. I tend to get caught up in a lot of that, so this would be very helpful for me. I’m sure it can calm you down as well!

5. Upholstered Headboard

Modway Lily Upholstered Twin Headboard

Is your bed taken over by the lovely, puffy comforter and pillows? To balance all the comfy energy on your dorm room bed, a unique headboard could do the trick.

It can make you feel even more at home if you use a similar design to your headboard you had to leave behind.

Headboards can be of any style, texture, color and shape. It can also be designed to match the color scheme or mood of your room. As your Twin XL college dorm bed may seem unexciting, adding a headboard can make it look like the bed of your dreams. 

My headboard is wooden and matches the style I have picked for my storage units, desk, and chair in my dorm room. Having a headboard does a great job of tying everything together. 

BUY IN AMAZON

6. Waterproof Mattress Protector

Linenspa Premium Smooth Fabric Mattress Protector

Nothing could be worse than discovering bedbugs have taken over your mattress in your dorm room.

The risk of a bedbug takeover can be eliminated with a mattress protector. Make sure you buy the right size for your dorm bed!

I know this may not seem that important, but trust me, you will thank yourself when the end of the year rolls around and you can just take off your mattress protector and your mattress is just like new again!

BUY IN AMAZON

7. Quilted Fitted Mattress Pad

Utopia Bedding Quilted Fitted Mattress Pad (Twin)

Dorm rooms don’t usually come with as nice of a mattress as you may have at home. An uncomfortable mattress can be a hit or miss with all the time you want to spend in bed watching Netflix and getting good-quality sleep.

Therefore, a mattress pad for your dorm bed can make all the difference in your sleep schedule.

My mattress was uncomfortable before I got a mattress pad. Now I find I can sleep better and fall asleep more quickly than before! This item is definitely worth the price!

Must Haves For Organization

8. Underbed Storage Bag

SONGMICS Underbed Storage Bag

Trying to fit a whole year’s worth of school supplies, clothing, and snacks into your dorm room can leave it looking like a tornado just blew through.

Though room organization is a huge struggle for many college students, storage units can solve this problem by decluttering a room.

Storage trunks can be used as both a storage spot and a display table. Storage bins are useful for optimizing minimal storage space under your dorm room bed and other hard-to-get-to places.

I use the space under my bed to keep my snacks and extra books from previous semesters.

BUY IN AMAZON

9. Multi-layer Hangers

Devesanter Multi-Layer Hanger

It is quite common for dorm rooms to have very limited closet space.

Plastic hangers found in any back-to-school section of the store are often bulky and take up way too much space in your dorm closet.

Multi-layer hangers save a lot of space in your dorm closet and help declutter the area, creating more room for other storage. 

BUY IN AMAZON

10. Velvet Hangers

Utopia Home Premium Non Slip Velvet Hangers

These allow you to fit more clothes in your dorm closet than thicker plastic hangers.

They also stop your shirts and sweaters from sliding off one side after the other, creating piles of clothing on the floor with just one accidental nudge.

This means no more clean clothing covered in dust!

BUY IN AMAZON

11. Organizers Hang on Doors

Gorilla Grip Premium Over The Door Shoe Organizer

Organization tools such as caddies or hooks can save space in your college dorm room when it may seem like you have none. These caddies can hold shoes in your closet or extra books that don’t fit on your desk. 

Caddies can also hang on Command hooks and therefore have more versatility than you may realize. Wall hooks can be stuck to any surface to add the ability to hang decorations on windows, organization caddies on doors or photos on walls. 

I love to hang up fun lights using Command hooks and my caddie saves me a lot of space and clutter!

BUY IN AMAZON

12. Adjustable Drawer Dividers

TENABORT Adjustable Drawer Dividers

When you need to find that favorite pen or pencil in your dorm room desk drawer, it can be challenging to sift through all the other items rolling around in your desk.

A drawer divider can keep each of those specific items organized and prevent them from rolling around each time you open and close the drawer. You will never have to waste time rummaging around in your desk again!

These drawer dividers have also saved me a lot of ot time during virtual classes. I don’t need to rummage around in my desk drawers to find things.

BUY IN AMAZON

13. Desk Organizer

SimpleHouseware Mesh Desk Organizer with Sliding Drawer, Double Tray and 5 Upright Sections, Black

Nothing is worse than having a messy office and a messy desk.

With this desk organizer, your coworker’s messy desk will disappear. This organizer comes in two colors, has five vertical compartments, a drawer, and a horizontal compartment.

It’s the perfect gift for a coworker who works in an office!

BUY IN AMAZON

Must Have Toiletries

14. Personalized Embroidered Towels

Custom Monogrammed Personalized Embroidered Towels

Embroidered bath and hand towels are popular items this semester as students do what they can to keep track of their towels.

Having your name or monogram embroidered onto your towel set is a cheap way of preventing other students living in your dorm from confusing your generic towel with theirs.

This small way of personalizing your towels will save you from having to replace them after the awkward swap takes place in your dorm’s communal bathroom.

My towel set has lasted me a long time and has also definitely saved me from the confusion I may be confronted with, in the event that another student accidentally reached for mine instead of theirs.

BUY IN AMAZON

15. Portable Storage Organizer

Design Plastic Portable Storage Organizer Utility Caddy Tote

Dorm halls usually have shared bathrooms at the end of each hallway and therefore require you to carry all your belongings with you to and from the showers.

Shower caddies and tote bags are your answer when it comes to carrying all your essential toiletries to and from your dorm room.

Don’t forget those flip-flops as you walk down the halls because they can protect you from the dirt and grime collecting on the dorm floors.

I have so many different kinds of soap, shampoo, scrubs, lotions, and so much more, that I can’t possibly carry all those items to the bathroom in one go.

I highly recommend you invest in this waterproof shower caddie!

BUY IN AMAZON

16. A Warm Bathrobe

American Soft Linen Luxury Hotel & SPA Warm Soft Plush Fleece Robe

While walking to and from the bathroom down that long hallway in your dorm, it can be a nuisance to have to hold your towel around you with one hand and all your other belongings with the other.

A bathrobe can fix your lack of an extra arm by allowing you to free up your hand that you would usually use to hold up your towel. It also takes away the risk of losing your grip on your towel before you can get back to your dorm room!

I cannot say I have been one of those embraces students that have lost hold of their towel in the hallway, but I can say I have come dangerously close.

I appreciate the protection my robe provides from my soaking wet hair as well.

BUY IN AMAZON

Must Have Decorations

17. Easy Peel and Stick Wallpaper 

Decals for the Wall Easy Peel + Stick Wall Decal Dots

Though you may have all the decorations you think you could ever need to make your dorm room one of a kind, there is a huge canvas that still needs to be used to make your dorm room stand out.

A blank wall that may take up one-sixth of your room needs to be covered! Easy-to-apply wallpaper can make wall decorating a quick, easy, and mess-free process.

If you want an even softer look than the wallpaper options, you could look into hanging a tapestry or posters to bring your dorm room to life. 

I actually got tired of the weird zoom backgrounds and put up my own easy-peel wallpaper behind me so when I am in online class, I already have a background! I highly recommend you try this out! It is also easy to get off if you ever want a different background.

BUY IN AMAZON

18. LED Photo Clip String Lights

LECLSTAR LED Photo Clip String Lights

These clips are the perfect dorm gift since most people like to have reminders of their friends and family back home when they move into new dorms.

But, the small dorm space can get in the way of where to put your pictures. These string lights allow you to utilize your wall space and put your most special memories on display.

Not to mention, they also add much-needed lighting to your space. String lights were a godsend when I went to college! They made displaying my pictures easy and left an elegant feel to my room. 

BUY IN AMAZON

19. LED String Lights

ANJAYLIA LED String Lights

LED lights can add the finishing touch to any dorm room. They add soft lighting to set a relaxing mood and create a dainty aesthetic.

Though some colleges have restrictions on electric lights, they are usually more lenient with these smaller fairy string lights as they are seen to be less of a fire hazard. Check your college’s policies on dorm lighting just in case!

Many schools have policies against string lights, but if your school lets you hang them up in your room, I highly recommend you add them to your dorm room!

BUY IN AMAZON

20. Mini Plants 

Nubry Mini Fake Succulent Plants
$14.99 ($2.50 / Count)

Your dorm room may have all the comfy blankets and pillows it needs to fit your style, but it is missing the beautiful feeling of life.

Mini plants can bring that feeling of life to your dorm room! They can be a great way to get you up in the morning because you have to water them (even though they are easy to maintain).

It can also be an entertaining conversation to have with your peers if you come up with fun names for the plants.

Must Have Furniture

21. Bedside Shelf or Lap Desk

Amada Bedside Shelf for Bed with Cable Management & Cup Holder

When your bed is just too comfortable to get out of in the morning before class, why not have a way to do your classwork while in bed?

Having a bedside shelf to place items such as cups and mugs can allow you to stay in bed longer. And having a lap desk can make it easier for you to spend more time in bed while you keep yourself accountable by getting your classwork done.

BUY IN AMAZON

22. Mini Fridge 

BLACK+DECKER Mini Fridge with Freezer

It can get old when you have to walk all the way to the dorm kitchen to get your leftovers from the dorm’s communal fridge.

What if others have taken your food by accident? With a mini-fridge in your dorm room, you don’t need to worry about your food mysteriously going missing.

Save yourself from that annoying trip all the way to and from the kitchen just for that pint of ice cream.  

If you plan on spending a long period of time in your dorm room, having the access to food from your mini-fridge can be a life-saver!

BUY IN AMAZON

23. Full-length Mirror 

Letushy Wall Mirror Full Length and Door Mirror

Though there are many classes exclusively offered online at college this year, there are still opportunities for students to go out and dress up.

There is no way to check out your outfit or loungewear without a full-length mirror in your dorm room.

It is also a great way to take selfies of any new outfit or comfy look. This also had been a fun activity for my roommate and me to take friend photos in the mirror!

BUY IN AMAZON

24. Fuzzy Area Rugs

PAGISOFE Purple Area Rugs
$28.99

Dorm rooms often have either hardwood or cold tile floors. This can put a damper on your comfy dorm room style.

A way to add more comfort to your dorm is by laying down a cozy rug.

The color, design, and shape of your rug can match the color scheme of your room and bring the entire design together!

BUY IN AMAZON

25. Window Shades 

Window Shades

The sun can be a pest in the morning when you are trying to sleep in until virtual class. None of us like being woken up early by the bright rays of the sun through our window.

Adding blackout window shades can increase your ability to sleep in and also bring your daytime movie game to the next level.

These window shades are easy to install and make all the difference when it comes to sleeping in.

BUY IN AMAZON

26. USB port, Touch Control Table Lamp

Yarra-decor Bedside Lamp with USB port

Your dorm room may not have overhead lighting or enough lighting for reading and writing.

A desk lamp is a stylish and efficient way to light up your desk without having to move around the furniture in your dorm room. 

My desk lamp makes it a lot easier to control the level of lighting in my room as well. If my roommate wants to sleep, I have the option to only have my desk lamp on.

BUY IN AMAZON

27. Modern Standing Lamp

Addlon Floor Lamp for Living Room with Lamp Shade and 9W LED Bulb

Often, the light already installed in dorm rooms is not in the most ideal location, and it can make it hard to create the best setup. This original light also rarely has the option to dim it or brighten it.

Getting a tall lamp and placing it in a good spot with your favorite type of light bulb can be the most ideal lighting option. 

I recommend this lamp because it is practical, but also has a nice lampshade that creates a subtle glow instead of harsh light like the ceiling light that comes with the room.

BUY IN AMAZON

28. Small Trash Can

simplehuman Gallon Round Bathroom Step Trash Can

Most dorm rooms come furnished with a desk, chair, bed, and dresser but no trash bin. Therefore, many students end up with no good place to store trash in their dorm rooms.

Picking up a small trash can may avoid the chances of your trash just sitting in an old plastic bag on the floor for days.

You also won’t have to awkwardly walk down the hall to the communal trash bin every time you need to discard something. 

BUY IN AMAZON

29. Foldable Chair

Zenithen Foldable Chair

Dorm rooms can feel cramped with all the extra decorations and other belongings. Therefore, anything that can be storable is a dorm room must-have.

A foldable chair can be used to accommodate a friend or family member while staying out of the way when not being used. 

When the weather is nice enough to go outside, a foldable chair can be handy to take outside on the grass to hang out with friends.

BUY IN AMAZON

30. Clip-on Light

Vekkia/LuminoLite Rechargeable Book Light

These lights can be very helpful when you are lying in bed and need to read a book for class but don’t want to turn on your bright lamp in order to see.

Instead, you can clip this little light onto the top of your book, and it will illuminate just the right amount of the page! 

This is a great alternative to having the bright light on in your room. Especially if your roommate wants to go to bed before you are done with your readings.

31. Mini Fan

Airflow is challenging when it is too cold to open the window to help circulate the air in your dorm room. A mini fan could do just the trick. 

You can adjust the tile of this fan and can also be a cool and refreshing option in the next few months when the weather warms up.

They are small enough to take up minimal storage space and can save you from having to throw another load of clean yet wrinkled laundry into the wash again.

They are also very simple to use and don’t need any special liquid or any other products. 

I love keeping my clothes in drawers and therefore, they end up wrinkled a lot. This portable steamer has been an amazing solution to all my wrinkled clothes and has helped keep my outfits looking fresh and professional.

33. Portable Mini Hand Vacuum

It can also get into small crevices so that there are no more dust balls rolling around on your floor under your bed. 

My room is not cleaned by the cleaning crew in charge of the rest of my dorm, so having this vacuum cleaner to just use when I spill crumbs everywhere is a life-saver.

BUY IN AMAZON

36. Microwave-Safe Dinnerware Set

NARVE Microwave Safe Dinnerware Sets

Living in a dorm can make cooking a challenging feat, especially while social distancing.

When dinner is going to be an instant mac and cheese bowl or leftovers from the night before, it may be worthwhile to get a microwavable dinnerware set to heat up those leftovers.

It could even save you the trip to the communal dorm kitchen if you have a mini-fridge to store leftovers in your room. 

My college’s dining hall is only giving out plastic and paper materials and this microwave-safe dinnerware set has helped me store food in my room.

Having a mini-fridge to keep the food in has also really helped.

37. Snacks in Bulk

NABISCO Variety Pack Snack Box

Snacks can seem like lifesavers if you need to get through a late night of studying or need a quick and easy pick-me-up.

Getting individual bags of chips from the vending machine can cost more than you think by the end of the semester.

But, if you buy your favorite snacks in bulk at the beginning of the semester, then you can end up saving a ton of cash in the long run! 

BUY IN AMAZON

38. Portable Car Electric Kettle

Whether you prefer tea or coffee, both these drinks are dorm room must-haves when it comes to late-night studying sessions and early morning classes.

Keeping a water kettle in your room can open the door to a plethora of opportunities for study nights.

BUY IN AMAZON

39. An Easy-To-Maneuver Laundry Basket or Hamper

Handy Laundry Mesh Popup Laundry Hamper

Dorm buildings usually require students to journey all the way to one laundry room in the basement of the building. Because it can be such a long journey to take your laundry, having an efficient way to carry it can be helpful.

A laundry basket or hamper can be the best way to make your laundry easy to maneuver to and from your dorm room.

I used to always have to take at least three trips to the laundry room and back to start the washing machine because I didn’t have a proper container such as this one to carry all my clothes in. Now I can do it all in one trip!

BUY IN AMAZON

40. A Water Filter

Brita Standard UltraMax Water Filter
$95.99 - $199.99

Dorm buildings have only a few water fountains, and they can be a pain to walk to when you could just get water from the faucet.

No matter where you fill up your water bottle, using a water filter can make a huge difference in taste.

Also, if the better taste of water increases your water intake and overall hydration, then getting a water filter can be beneficial for your health.

47. Noise-canceling Headphones

Mpow Noise Cancelling Headphones

Dorm buildings can be great places to get to know other students at your school, but they can also make it very challenging to focus on your studies.

This is especially true when the students in the dorm room next door play music loudly or make distracting noises. The noise-canceling headphones can give you the chance to focus no matter what is going on around you. 

I tend to have a hard time concentrating when listening to catchy songs that I end up singing to instead of working on the assignment at hand.

I instead recommend listening to classical music when studying if you have a similar problem when studying.

A first-aid kit is something that you may need in scary situations. It could potentially be a lifesaver in some instances and is a good thing to have on hand.

I have found the most random times to use this kit, but it has always come in handy at some point during the semester. It comes with sanitation wipes and bandages of all shapes and sizes!

50. Washable Reusable Masks

Life on campus looks a bit different in 2021 compared to past years because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Because of the importance of always having some sort of protective equipment on your person when out and about, these are must-haves in your dorm room as well. 

If you are concerned about the air quality in your dorm room because of the connecting air vents running through the building, consider picking up an air purifier and a CleanseBot to rid your dorm room of germs in the air and on surfaces.

Stock up on washable or disposable face masks and personal care products such as hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.

It is hard to choose specific items that you need in your dorm room. Since your dorm room is a place where you spend a lot of time when at college, this comprehensive list will give you an idea of what you need!

Names to Call Your Girl Best Friend

Nicknames are more than just a fun name to call your friend or loved one. They tell a mini story about that person, the connection you have with them and how much they mean to you. They, in a way, signify your bond to that person. 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t give out nicknames easily. They have to be perfectly cultivated to encapsulate every beautiful, or not so beautiful, thing about the person who is given the name.

It can’t be super boring, basic, or plain (unless of course, that person is boring, but you love them for it anyway). A nickname has to be perfect; no if’s, and’s, or but’s about it, the name has to be absolutely perfect.

Now, after hearing my spiel about how important nicknames are, I am sure you are thinking about the fact that your girl best friend doesn’t have one.

I bet the panic is staring to set in now, “Why doesn’t my girl best friend have a nickname???” and “Why is my nickname for my girl best friend so bad?? How can I make it better?” Take a deep breath and worry no more.

Below are the best nicknames for your girl best friend and they aren’t super plain or basic. If you’re looking for names like those, then this isn’t the article for you because plain nicknames are pretty easy to come up with.

But hey, if that’s the perfect fit for your girl best friend by all means, use that nickname. 

Continuing on, below I have taken the nickname game to the next level by organizing all the nicknames into categories.

Simply look through the category that suites your relationship and choose from 50 names, or better yet, use my examples to come up with the perfect custom nickname for your girl best friend.

No matter what name you end up choosing or creating, she will love it!

Before you begin, remember, the nickname process can be a long one and it deserves the time. The perfect nickname can be tricky to find, however, you will know when you’ve found the perfect name because it will fit effortlessly.

Also, if it is the perfect nickname, it may stick with your girl best friend for the rest of her life. So, again, make sure it’s the right name for her! Enjoy the nickname process!

Final Thoughts on Names to Call Your Girl Best Friend

Friendships are some of the most important relationships we will ever have, therefore, making sure that your bestie has the perfect nickname is very important.

Some friendships are sweet, while others sassy and feisty, but no matter what type of relationship, a nickname should be fitting for both you and your friend (especially because you will be the one calling them said nickname, so you better like it too). 

Also, I want to say, using a nickname that is coined “basic” or “overused” doesn’t mean it’s bad. It is a way for you to connect with your friend and it will be meaningful to you and her.

Therefore, even if the nickname is “basic”, it will be more than meets the eye because it bonds the two of you. 

If you are struggling or, rather, were struggling to find the perfect nickname, I hope the list above was helpful in finding the perfect nickname or discovering an original one of your own!

No matter what you chose, your girl best friend will love it!

How Can Literature Classes in College Help You in Life

Published

on

By

Pages of Books

Much of the world’s historical cultures and traditions have been preserved in literary pieces that can be studied to learn about the older ways of life.

Most literary pieces contain encounters filled with various human experiences that help broaden one’s understanding of the world they live in. In a nutshell, studying literature courses can help you learn about various cultures and histories through commentaries, stories, and theories.

But, there’s more. Modern literature programs and classes are usually structured in ways that enable students to absorb a lot more.

This means that today’s literature programs can help students develop several transferable skills like essay writing, critical thinking, and more.

Thus, those students who study literature in college can learn several skills that can later be beneficial to employers. In this article, we will take a closer look at how literature classes in college can help you in life ahead.

But before we jump in, students reading this should also know that certain aspects of taking literature classes can be tough. For example, it is never easy to write great essays without a thorough knowledge of the process.

Thus, to perform better, students need all the help they can get.

Today, several digital platforms help students with their academic work. For example, students can use a top platform like Studyfy for their help write my essay or ‘edit my essay’ services.

Using such services enables students to boost their academic performance while also giving them insights into their essay work.

In no particular order, here are 8 ways literature classes in college can help you in life.

1) You Can Improve Your Communication Skills

One of the best ways of learning to communicate better is through reading more. While studying literature, students need to continually read through various types of text like prose or poetry.

They are also provided with various study notes and are also encouraged to create their own.

Literature classes can also be very interactive and engaging. Most literature programs include discussions, debates, seminars, and more.

Overall, students would be able to learn better communication through more reading, listening, evaluating, and writing.

 

2) You Will Be Motivated to Weave Your Life’s Story

The main essence of any work of literature is that one can always find a story in them. This is because most literary pieces are created to record various events experienced in one’s body, mind, and surroundings.

And these experienced events are usually recorded as stories. Thus, reading more literary works can help mold the idea of ‘story creation’ early on in students.

And attending literature classes in college helps students understand the know-how of how it can be done.

 

3) It Can Help Improve Your Evaluation Skills

Studying literature properly is not just about plain and simple reading. But it also has a lot to do with being able to discern what one reads. And learning the art of discernment can improve one’s overall evaluation skills.

Being able to discern and evaluate then goes to help students communicate and write a whole lot better.

And this skill – of reading, evaluating, and understanding – is of paramount importance in the professional world.

 

books

 

4) You Can Become More Articulate

Most literary works are written in different styles because they are written by different people. And the more one reads, the more they would understand the complexities behind different writing styles.

But studying literature in college has more benefits than this.

 

Throughout one’s literature program, they will be put through various tests to gauge and improve their literary abilities. And one of the main abilities one can work upon is being more articulate.

This means that a good literature student would always include all the details when making any type of argument or point.

 

5) You Can Become a Better Writer

Yes, the ability to write well depends a lot on one’s imagination and frame of mind. But, to become a great or even good writer, one also needs to do a bit of reading.

This is because, without reading previous works, one will not be able to know the required standards for great pieces of text. And without it, one will not be able to write such that it grips their readers.

In the professional world, writers are some of the most well-paid workers. This is because they can convert heaps of information into understandable and engaging texts.

And this can help a business connect with its audience a whole lot more.

 

6) You Can Improve Your Interactive & Social Skills

Literature courses and programs are some of the most interactive ones around. Why? Because it involves a lot of discussions, debates, storytelling sessions, and more.

In any literature class, one can always find various types of commentaries and speeches from professors and students alike.

Literature students have the unique opportunity of digging deeper into various subject areas. And the best part is that they can do so with all of their peers together.

Learning such interactive and engagement skills from one’s classroom can help them greatly in their future careers.

7) It Can Improve Your English Skills – Better Grammar, Punctuation, & More

English is not only the most spoken but is also considered a standard language across several international communities. Thus, to grow to greater heights, sooner or later, one needs to brush up on their English skills.

Most literature programs and classes around the world are conducted in English. When one takes up a program in English, they have the opportunity of learning the language usage from the masters.

Thus, learning literature early on in life can profoundly improve one’s overall English skills, which can be crucial for career progression.

 

8) It Can Teach You Critical Thinking & Broaden Your Horizons

To efficiently power through a literature class or program, one needs to be able to contribute adequately. But one’s contribution is often seen as beneficial when they are also able to communicate their knowledge neatly.

A study of literature can achieve this by making students find various patterns and meanings in texts. Literature from various periods of the world also contains much information about historical cultures and traditions.

It can give a lot of insight to students about how people during different times in history were, what they did, how they thought, and more. This broadens one’s horizons and makes one look at the world in an autobiographical way.

 

The Bottom Line

There is no doubt that studying literature in college has several benefits for one’s life. But that being said, literature programs can be difficult in terms of learning and scoring higher grades easily. 

Students should learn beforehand about all the intricacies and semantics of their desired programs. Doing so would help them know which particular literature program would be the most suitable for them.

Going away for college is the beginning of a brand new journey. You are leaving home behind for three or four months to live in a place that you have never been to before.

You now have to go to classes, move into your dorm room and receive a whole new set of responsibilities since you are off on your own. This is a big transition for any college student because you are going from having to abide by your parents’ rules to forming ones of your own.

Your parents will still check in with you and make sure you are okay, but now, in college, you are allowed to become independent and make your own decisions.

Now, it is your turn to have faith in yourself and make the right choices, starting with preparing what to pack away for college. You are going to be away from home for a whole semester, so you have to make sure that you have all of the things you need.

You need accessories to jazz up your dorm room. You need enough personal care products to last the entire semester. You have to make sure that all your school supplies are packed in your backpack and that you are up to date with the latest electronics.

If you are fortunate to have your own kitchen in your dorm, you must have all of the right tools with you so that you can learn to cook your meals on campus. Through this guide to packing what you have to bring to college, you will know exactly what you need and get you on the right track!

Final Thoughts on College Packing List

Getting ready to leave for college is an incredibly difficult task because you are essentially leaving behind the life you had always known, at least for a few months, to a brand new environment.

You will become mostly surrounded by people you have never met before and you have to rely on your own decision-making to solve problems that may arise in the upcoming semester.

It may seem very overwhelming and it is easy to become stressed out during this period, especially with the preparations before you leave for college.

You want to make you have everything you need before you are off on your own, which includes your personal care products, electronics, kitchen supplies, and dorm accessories.

Hopefully, this list has helped guide you in choosing the right items to bring!
