It’s that time – your high school graduate is getting ready for college. It’s a big step into a new chapter of life - a transition from living at home to the greater world and one which requires much planning. Many incoming college students will be spending much of their non-classroom time in a dorm room. As such, they will need to make all their necessities work in a relatively modest space, and there will be little room for non-essential items. College is definitely an exercise in frugal living, or in efficient resource management at the very least.

What will you need?

College dorm rooms are small. Whether they are basic or deluxe – they are small as compared with just about any other manner of dwelling. Many schools provide a checklist of things that can and cannot be brought into the dorm, along with acceptable sizes, voltage requirements and other specific details. With space being at a premium, the 65 inch family TV and home theater are definitely not going along for the ride! Items such as laptops, tablets, PCs, video game systems, small TVs or monitors, chairs, mini refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers and personal electronics are the most common things that students will bring along on their college journey. Beds, desks and some type of wardrobe storage are generally provided by default.

How can Metro Pawn & Gun help?

One of the great things about visiting us is that you will save tons of money, which is always a good thing considering all of the other college-related expenses that parents and students incur. Also worth mentioning is that getting brand new items at full price is probably not the best idea, as college life can be pretty hard on some things.
