This fall, approximately 20 million students will enter college. Of these, over 12 million will be full time, and 20% of them will live in college dormitories. If your student is one of those students excitedly – and anxiously – awaiting the college dorm room experience, you can help ease their minds a bit by setting up their space with touches from home. Whether her favorite stuffed animal from childhood, his favorite sports posters, or a framed photo of best friends from high school – surrounding themselves with familiar things can go a long way to helping them through the transition.
Make it Homey: Transforming a college dorm room from a sterile space to one of comfort may take a little work, but will be worth it. Green plants may not be your first thought when it comes to dorm room decor, but should be considered – they provide many benefits aside from their beauty.
You’ve heard us sing the praises of plants before, for good reason. Green plants help to clean and purify the air, and the detoxification actually results in improved mental focus and concentration, causing productivity to improve. For those reasons alone, plants are perfect for a college dorm room. Add to that the fact that studies have shown that plants also promote a sense of well-being and serenity, and you’ll probably want to bring more than one.
Important Dates: Not only will you want to set up the room initially with one of these hard working plants, but Crouch Florist will also assist you in remembering to send gifts throughout the year, especially for birthdays or special occasions normally celebrated together. Send their favorite flowers to add a special and personal touch, such as these lavender roses in a decorative vase.
Of course, every college student needs food and snacks – and lots of them! Whether they love chocolates, cheeses, or would prefer healthier options (shown below), you’ll find great options at Crouch Florist. Just shop online, and we’ll make sure that a basket overflowing with delicacies will arrive at the dormitory safely – making your student on of the most popular on the floor, no doubt! Yes, heading off to a new experience can be daunting – but it is made much easier with the support of those who love us. Show your student just how much you are behind them, with gifts from Crouch Florist. Whether they are local to Knoxville or are going out of state, we will handle your special delivery with care.
