I saw a recent online photo essay called “24 Signs You’re Having a Perfect Summer Stuck in Your College Town.” It was a humorous and somewhat thought-provoking look at something that doesn’t get discussed much: staying on campus when most students have headed home for a break. Among the benefits of staying on campus extolled by the photo essay were meeting new friends, being able to explore more of your college town, easier parking and a quieter residence hall. Somehow, though, the essay missed the first benefit that came to my mind: having more quality time with your University Loft dorm room furniture.
Let’s say you’re out at the college book store or the art supply store near campus. The lines are shorter so you get back to your dorm room in record time. Lucky you! Waiting for you are more space (thanks in part to an absent roommate, but mostly thanks to University Loft’s modular residence life furniture). Because you’ve lofted your bed using our Tool-less System, you’ve got room to spread out and even set up your easel and paints right in the middle of the room.
Tired of working on your art technique after a while? Go ahead and take a nap. And hey, since your roommate is back home working farm fields to earn cash for the next semester, you can check out the accommodations of the bottom bunk for a change. From there you gain a whole new appreciation for the ultra-strong craftsmanship of University Loft’s solid wood bed construction, including our oversized bed posts.
When you wake up, of course, there’s always studying to do – right after some gaming, that is. Good thing your University Loft Wave Chair makes it easy to do both with a simple conversion from gaming rocker to full-height mesh-backed desk chair.
Yes, summer, winter, spring or fall, University Loft student furnishings make your dorm room and residence hall a pleasant place to live, work and play. Want to learn more about University Loft’s modular student furniture for college residence life? Contact us today at 800-423-LOFT (5638).
