Going to College This Spring? You'll Need The Seven Gadgets Here!


Thousands of recent high school graduates will be trekking to their respective universities for their freshman year this spring. As your living space as a college student, your dorm room will be your living space every day so it is important to make sure that it will be conducive to studying and recreation at the same time.

Here are some must-have gadgets that you should buy before you move into your freshman dorm as compiled by Tech Hive and PC World:
