Dorm Decor for the College Bound Student

I can’t believe that in a few short weeks Malik will once again be leaving and heading back to start his last fall semester at Bowie State University.  


Even though he worked almost all summer at Amazon, he spent most of his money, so once again will be looking to me to help him pay for any dorm decor items, it’s become a back to school shopping tradition!


back to college supply shopping


Lucky for me, I don’t have a son who’s really into fads and trends or even matching bedding, so it makes my job easier.  But if you are the parent of a college-bound student that is more particular, here are a few items that would be great for his/her dorm room from PBTeen.


Bohemian Tile Deluxe Comforter Set with Comforter, Sheet Set, Pillowcase, Mattress Pad, Pillow Inserts, and Blanket

Bring comfort to your home-away-from-home with this boho chic bedding set. Complete with every essential, this bundle will ensure a solid night’s sleep or power nap between classes.


Classic Robe

Sharing a communal bathroom? This classic plush robe is perfect for transitioning from shower to dorm, or just lounging in on Sunday morning. Get it monogrammed to make it your own.


Solid Canvas Bins

We all know dorms aren’t particularly large, so smart storage solutions are a must. You’ll stay organized and stylish with these solid canvas bins for under-bed, closet, and desk storage.



In addition to bedding, food and cleaning supplies which are high on the list, here are a few other College Campus Survival Kits from Amazon, that will make their home away from home a bit more manageable.
