College Stuff Checklist: Floor Fan
Freshmen who are going to college for the first time are often presented with a list of things they'll need to outfit their dorm room. One item is always absent from these lists and that amazes me. I'm talking about a floor fan. Fans are super useful. They're great when your air conditioning breaks or a roommate likes it hotter than you do. They help dry spills and clothes that didn't quite dry in the dorm dryers. They can get smells out of your room and cool off your computer. You can make funny voices by talking into the fan. White noise from fans can help drown out other noises and get you to sleep faster. Good fans are durable and will last a very long time. I recommend one that oscillates and can be angled up and down.
