Remember when the most high-tech thing in dorm rooms were mini-fridges and graphing calculators? Gone are the days of flip-phones and Jurassic-sized laptops — today’s freshman have grown up in the digital age, and technology available to them comes in too many forms to mention. So, if it’s time for your favorite student to head to college for the first time, you’re going to want to stock up on some tech essentials.
We know; it’s a little overwhelming. Where do you even start? Once you’ve got all the standard bases covered (think sheets, textbooks, office supplies, etc.), you’ll likely find yourself falling down the rabbit hole of tech options online. It’s easy to feel lost! And you’ve already got enough on your plate, with pushing your little bird out of the nest. Which is precisely why we put together a quick and easy highlight reel of some of the hottest tech essentials out there.
Peruse the list, and prepare to add items to your kid’s college shopping cart.
