As I write this, it’s shortly before a new year arrives, and I can’t help but think about fresh starts and first-time experiences. You know, like your first day of first grade or your first night in a new home. For incoming college and university freshmen and transfer students, it can be a double whammy: first day on campus and first time in their home-away-from-home, the university housing student residence. I remember being pretty stressed out my first day on campus and in the dorm room; and I can’t help but think how much easier it would have been if my room had been outfitted with University Loft’s modular student furniture.
Let’s face it: we feel stressed when we feel like we have no control over a situation and aren’t sure what to expect. While University Loft can’t eliminate all uncertainties from the first-day-at-college experience, we can give students a sense of control and comfort in their new university housing environment.
You see, with University Loft student furnishings, students can tailor their college or university housing space to their liking. Want to sleep above with the desk below? Check. ULoft furniture makes that possible. Want to sleep top bunk over bottom bunk? Check…University Loft furniture can do that, too. Want to turn the bottom bed 90 degrees and place a dresser alongside and underneath the top bunk. Check, check, double check!
For all the things you can’t control as you enter college, at University Loft, we believe you should still have some control over your dorm room space planning. So go ahead, mix it up! Take charge and get comfortable in your on-campus living space by configuring your University Loft modular student furniture to your liking.
And relax, for crying out loud! First steps might be the hardest, but without them, we’d never get to where we want to be.
