SBM College Must Haves

Congrats, graduate! With summer vacation in front of you and your first semester of college on the horizon, we here at Springboard Media would like to make sure you have the proper tools to make the exciting years ahead of you the best.

Your Technology

This may be a no-brainer, but you need a fast, reliable laptop to make it through the next four or andrew-neel-237802.jpgfive years. If you are pursuing a creative degree that requires the Adobe suite or other intense software like it, the Macbook Pro is the laptop for you. With ultra fast processing and an unbeatable display your assignments won’t know what hit them. On the other hand if your looking for something to handle research, internet usage, and writing programs go with the Macbook Air which packs its own punch when it comes to processing and storage. Pair these machines with our complete protection plan, a relaible back-up drive, sweeten the deal with our education discount and you'll be ready to take on the next four years.      

Bring the Noise

College is noisy, especially if you live in a dorm. You will hear everything from your neighbors fighting with their significant others to loud music way past quiet hours. So you have three options to save your hearing and sanity. One, you can invest in some earplugs and hope they don’t keep you from hearing you morning alarm clock. You could get yourself a pair of Bose SoundSport Wireless earbuds that are the best at delivering high-quality sound you want to hear while cancelling out all other noise around you. Or my personal favorite, set up a Sonos PLAY:1 and drown out the noise around with you own awesome playlist.

Make the Most of Your Downtime

Here is where you think I will recommend some great apps and devices to keep you connected with your family and on top of your assignments, but we already have other blog posts for that. In college you will have a lot of downtime, and procrastination does have a hand in that, but it may be the last time you have this much free time so make the most of it! Forego the basic cable package and get an AppleTV. With all your video streaming subscriptions and favorite channels at your fingertips a lazy night in with Chinese take-out never looked so enticing.
