2. Water Bottle

S'Well water bottles are the "it" thing right now because they are cute but also keep water cold for days (not an exaggeration-- I have one and love it).

If the person you're gifting is more outdoorsy, I find that these college gals usually tend to go for the Hydro Flask

Both are the most popular water bottles people get in college.

The most popular colors currently for college students are matte blackgoldblack crocodile, and marble.

3. Fuzzy Blanket
cozy blanket for college students

Is there a more comfy looking blanket?! I'm thinking no.

You can't go wrong with a blanket as a Christmas gift, it is a hit for all kinds of people.

Dorms and apartments have a history of being freezing since no one wants to pay for a lot of heat. A blanket is a must in the winter.

This blanket comes in a variety of colors and sizes (twin, queen, and king). 

4. AirPods
best christmas gifts for college students bluetooth headphones

Bluetooth headphones are a college essential and beloved item by many.

Some of my college friends said that bluetooth headphones have been their favorite purchase of the year and that they didn't know how they lived without them before (slightly dramatic, but you can clearly tell these are a hit).

The original Apple AirPods are the most popular wireless headphones for college students. They hold battery for a long time and don't break easily. However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative these wireless headphones come in at just $27.99.

5. Apple Watch

Apple Watches are another "it" item and something that everyone wants.

Not only can it help you stay organized and on top of your work, it can also help look at your fitness and sleep patterns.

This is a bigger gift, but one of the most wanted christmas gifts for college girl.

You can never have enough Lululemon clothes and will be a hit no matter what the girl is like.

Lululemon is by far the most popular workout brand for college students.

7. Fuzzy Sweatshirt
christmas gift for college student

I called my sister to ask her what she thought the most popular christmas gifts for college girl would be (she's a freshman at University of Wisconsin-Madison) and she said hands down fuzzy sweatshirts.

She has this one from Nordstrom and whenever she wears it, she has at least ten girls asking where she got it from. 

The one I have listed is a cheaper one available on Amazon, but if you want the real deal the Nordstrom sweatshirt is the way to go. 

These are really popular and for good reason. You are basically a walking blanket wearing this!

8. Gift Card for a Massage

Um, who wouldn't want a gift card for a massage?!

A massage is something every college girl wants but usually can't afford, so surprise her with one on you!

9. White Adidas Sneakers

I recently saw a picture of a group of girls from my high school with their college friends and every single one had white Adidas sneakers on.

It is definitely the popular shoe available right now.

I included the black and white adidas sneaker because thats the classic option (still very popular) but the all white one is the most popular option right now. 

10. Baseball Hat

Hats are always popular but especially with college students since sometimes we don't feel like washing our hair ;/. 

These are the two favorite hats... The first hat can be customized to have the initials of your local airport. It lets the student bring a little bit of home to college.

The second hat is the distressed look which is SO popular. Both are great options!

11. Long Winter Jacket

If you're in the North and the college student doesn't have a long winter jacket like one of these, you my swell plan their funeral. 

Okay, totally kidding. But seriously, a good jacket is so essential for anywhere that gets cold. Most of college students classes require a walk and colleges don't cancel classes easily for snow/cold weather.

This Christmas gift for college girl can be a little pricey, but they both last forever. The Canada Goose Jacket ($923.71) seems extremely expensive but you would be shocked at the amount of college students that have them because they keep you so warm. 

12. Satin Pajamas
college christmas gift ideas girls

The go-to college pajamas is a large old t-shirt and a raggedy pair of shorts.

BUT, having a nice set of satin pajamas makes you feel much more put together and the perfect way to feel a little more like, "I've got my shi* together and I will ace this test tomorrow".

Everyone could use a new set of pajamas and no one really thinks about buying themselves them which makes it the perfect gift.

You can purchase these pajamas here.

13. Stickers for Laptop

They have a few available left here.

19. Face Masks

Face masks are the closest thing college students will get to a spa. Believe me, this will be one of the best Christmas gifts for college girls.

22. Giftcards

Gift cards have always been and will always be the most wanted Christmas gift for college girl.

The most popular gift cards among us college students are Amazon, Target, food places, and Gas gift cards.

I'm biased to Amazon because they offer SO many products. They can get everything from game day apparel to food (and everything in between). Amazon gift cards can be purchased online.

23. Bluetooth Speaker
good gift ideas for college students | bluetooth speaker

Every college student needs a bluetooth speaker. It is essential!

This JBL Flip 3 Splash-proof Portable Stereo is one of the most popular speakers because of how loud it can play, it won't break it drinks get spilled on it, and can easily fit in a purse or backpack to take somewhere.

24. Travel Mug

If the student you are gifting this too is a coffee or tea lover, this is a must.

The Yeti Tumblr is truly the best insulated travel mug and keeps your drink hot all through the day. Plus, it doesn't spill which is very important. If you don't like white, there are 12 other colors to choose from.

If you want to go for a "cuter" route, check out these travel mugs with gold lids. I want one!

25. RayBan Sunglasses
christmas gifts for college girls

Everyone wants Ray Ban sunglasses. These are BY FAR the most popular sunglass brand for college students. You literally can't go wrong getting a pair of Ray Bans for a girl in college.

I would say aviators are the most popular style Ray Ban for students but there are all different kinds of styles, so make sure to see which one you think they would like best!

26. Tile
christmas gifts for college girls cheap

If the student you are buying for loses things a lot, they NEED a Tile! 

You attach them to your keys and hook it up to an app on your phone. The app will tell you exactly where your keys are so you never misplace them.

AND they are less than $25! I always assumed they were much more than that.

You can find this gold tile here.

27. Initial Necklace
cheap gifts for college students

Initial necklaces are the thing to wear right now. The most popular ones are these two which are actually dupes for more expensive brands (like WAY more expensive).

These are a little bigger so if the person you're buying for doesn't usually wear jewelry I would maybe stay away from this.

28. Towel Wrap

I've said it before and I'll say it again, towel wraps are a MUST in college!

I used mine everyday and still use it every single time I shower.

You can find this towel wrap in all kinds of colors here.

29. Luna Face Cleaner
creative gifts for college student

You know Clarisonics? Well this is the new "IT" skin care cleaner.

I do have to say, these are amazing and clean your face so well.

These aren't cheap but they will last you a long time (and come in many different colors!).

30. Personalized Makeup Bag

I just found out about this little gadget and let me tell you, I am hooked. So, I know that your mom will be too! 

All moms have to start their day with a latte or a cappuccino, right?! If you make it at home, sometimes it's hard to get the consistency of the milk just right. This coffee frother helps get drinks as perfect as if it were made in a coffee shop. 

7. Insulated Stemless Wine Glass 

PSA! These are less than $10 dollars and come in a million colors.

For any momma that loves one, she needs one of these.

2. Jewelry Box 

We all learned about jewelry from ours moms as well. Often times we see it hanging or in trays and kind of all over their bathroom and bedroom right? It’s never all in the same spot, and we know that it would be such a lifesaver for them if it were. 

So, a great christmas gift idea for mom is a jewelry box! This one on Amazon is big enough to fit all of her jewelry in one place so that she never has to search for jewelry ever again!

Continuing on the cosmetics train, new makeup brushes are such a great Christmas gift idea for mom! I bet she hasn’t thought of buying new makeup brushes in forever, so this sweet and inexpensive gift will mean the world to her! 

6. Electric Water Kettle 

My assistant was gifted one of these when she moved into her first apartment, and she can’t stop saying enough good things about this! It’s an electric water kettle that heats up various amounts of water in a couple of minutes. 

This is the perfect christmas gift idea for moms that love to cook because it heats up water for boiling in no time. Mom’s love to save time since they do so much, so I promise that she will love getting this gift from you! 

8. A Bottle (or two) of her Favorite Wine 

Speaking of wine, a great go to Christmas gift idea for mom when you’re in a time crunch is to go and grab a couple bottles of her favorite wine as her gift! It’s one that she will love, because she already loves it! 

9. Candles

Candles are such a great go-to gift for anyone, moms included. Moms love to host or just have the house feeling nice and cozy, and candles certainly add to that. 

Most candles also do not break the bank, so this is a great Christmas gift idea for mom that will definitely be within your budget! 

10. Candle Holder 

If you decide to get your mom candles for Christmas, spice up your gift by adding a candle holder to the mix, too! Then it will look like you really thought it out! 

11. AirPods

AirPods are all the rage for the younger generation, but I think that they should be “in” for the parents too!

Mom would love AirPods for so many reasons, and I think the cordless feature would peak at the top of its list. So if you have a little extra to spend on your dear ole mom this Christmas, definitely consider AirPods! 

12. Shoes

Shoes are a great Christmas gift idea for mom because let's be real, a mom can NEVER have enough shoes! So if you want a gift that you know your mom will love, shoes are the way to go! 

But you might be wondering what shoes to get her. Totally understandable, here’s a pro tip: check in her closet and see if anythings missing or try and recall past conversations, that should help you figure out what shoes mom would love most for Christmas! 

13. Coffee Table Books 

Moms LOVE to have their home looking very aesthetic for when guests come over. Coffee table books are a great way to add to said aesthetic without breaking the bank.

And there are so many coffee table books that one or two are bound to fit your mom’s home and personality perfectly. So if you have a mom love that loves house decor, this is one Christmas gift idea for her that you won’t want to forget! 

14. Jewelry 

Jewelry is another great Christmas gift idea for mom because it is such a go to category for women’s gifts in general. 

All women love jewelry, so I promise you that some gold hoops or a simple necklace will be a great gift for mom for Christmas. 

15. Foot Massager 

It might have taken us a while to learn, but moms work HARD and we cannot deny it. So, a great Christmas gift idea for mom would be one that makes coming home after a long day that much more inviting, right? Right!

That’s why a foot massager is such a great Christmas gift idea for mom. It helps her relax after a hard day and gives her feet the attention they deserve. A foot massager for Christmas basically guarantees that you’ll be her favorite child from here on out! 

16. Air Fryer 

Air fryers are one of the newest and hottest trends and I am sure that moms would love to jump on it! Especially moms who want to make and create the best healthy meals for their family that they can! It’s a great Christmas gift idea for moms that want to stay on trend AND stay healthy! 

17. Coffee Spoons 

I’ve already said it but its so important that I will say it again, moms need coffee. And most moms need coffee with creamer! So, be super thoughtful this Christmas and get your mom some coffee spoons for Christmas.

Because you know she needs her coffee and want her to have things specially dedicated to her morning coffee, you recognize how vital it is to her functioning. You’ll be her favorite child because of how thoughtful this gift is! 

18. Books 

Books are SUCH a great Christmas gift idea for mom! They’re on the more inexpensive side and what mom doesn’t love to curl up with a good book? 

Getting mom books for Christmas is a great way to tell her that you love her and want her to relax. And those are definitely things that favorite children say! 

19. A Nice Flannel 

Flannels are a staple in the winter for any and everyone because they provide comfort and warmth without being super bulky. If your mom is always cold or needs some extra layers this winter, definitely look into getting her a NICE flannel for Christmas! 

20. Weighted Blanket 

Weighted Blankets are ALL the rage right now, and honestly why wouldn’t they be? They feel like you’re sleeping with a hug around you.

It’s super comforting and guaranteed to help your sleep quality improve. Weighted blankets are great Christmas gift ideas for moms who need some help sleeping at night, or just always love hugs! 

21. A New Wallet 

My mom’s wallet has always been filled to the brim with gift cards, rewards cards, credit cards, and cash. If your mom’s is the same way, look into getting her a new wallet for Christmas.

Wallets are a great Christmas gift idea for mom because they show that you notice the little things! 

22. Car Mount 

Car mounts keep your phone held in a place on your dashboard so that you can easily see it without looking down. I’m not advocating for your mom to text and drive, but car mounts are helpful for looking at directions or talking to someone on speaker phone.

So if you want to make sure that your mom is driving safe, a car mount is an awesome Christmas gift idea! 

23. Sunglasses 

What mom doesn’t ROCK some sunnies on the daily? Sunglasses are a great Christmas gift idea for mom because honestly, can one really have enough sunnies? 

24. Gym Bag 

Did you know that most moms don’t realize that they actually need a gym bag for working out? They think taking their purse in is just fine!

Taking a purse isn’t the worst thing in the world, but mom deserves to feel like a rockstar in the gym, right? So if you want your mom to look and feel like the rockstar she truly is, get her a nice gym bag for Christmas! 

25. Personalized Toiletry Bag 

Moms travel too, and they need nice and spacious toiletry bags! Toiletry bags have always been a go to Christmas gift idea for mom, but this year take it up a notch by getting that bag PERSONALIZED!

It will show that her favorite child really took the time to get her a gift they knew she would love! 

26. Straightener Brush 

Have you seen these before? I just found them and TBH, I’m adding to my own Christmas wish list! It’s a heated hair brush that STRAIGHTENS your hair while your brush it. How awesome is that? 

This would make a PERFECT Christmas gift idea for the mom who complains about how long it takes her to get ready because this brush would totally save her time! 

27. Your School's Sweatshirt/Jacket

Mom’s LOVE to rep their kids schools. Don’t lie, you know its true. So if you want to get her something unique, look into grabbing a sweatshirt or t-shirt from your school’s spirit shop before you head home for break.

This is such a sweet and thoughtful Christmas gift idea for mom because it shows her that you recognize what she loves and you want her to love your school just as much as you do! 

28. Wireless Charging Station for Phone 

If your mom is one who loves convenience, then I have the PERFECT Christmas gift for you to give her! 

If your mom has the iPhone 8 or up, it can wirelessly charge! All she has to do is place is face up on a wireless charging stand and BOOM! it charges her phone. Mom would LOVE this gift because it means no more annoying cords! 

29. Foreo Face Cleanser  

    Moms have to have a skincare routine too! Upgrade them to a  ~luxurious~ skincare routine by getting them a Foreo.

    A Foreo gentles cleanses your skin and removes dead skin cells. It will keep mom’s face clean and fresh, and she’ll have you, her favorite child, to thank for it!  

30. Eye Shadow Palette 

When it comes to makeup, I truly believe that the easiest gift to give is an eyeshadow palette. Why? Because there are so many kinds of looks that you can create and your mom is sure to find one that she loves! 

If your mom loves makeup and you’re looking for a gift that doesn’t break the bank but looks thoughtful, an eyeshadow palette is a great Christmas gift idea for mom! 

31. Face Mask Set 

Moms deserves luxury. And face masks, they feel luxurious but don’t have a luxurious price tag, which we gift givers LOVE. So if you mom just wants a simple gift for Christmas, I highly suggest getting her a set of face masks! 

32. Contigo Travel Mug 

Moms are ALWAYS on the go. Often, that means their coffee is on the go, too. If this sounds like your mom, then a Contigo travel mug is a great Christmas gift idea for her! 

Contigo Travel mugs don’t break the bank, but they keep your coffee warm for HOURS! And their no spill technology makes sure that your mom doesn’t have to add “cleaning another mess” to her list of things to do!

33. Tile Set 

Moms can be NOTORIOUS for losing things, especially keys and phones. If that’s your mom, then I highly suggest getting a tile set as your mom’s Christmas gift. It gives her a way to find one if she has the other. What a time saving and thought gift! 

34. "I Love You Mom and Here's Why" Journal

This is a sweet journal you fill out for your mom. So if your mom is simple and sentimental, I think that this is the ideal Christmas gift idea for you to get her! 

35. Bath Bomb Set 

Bath bombs are just like the face mask set I mentioned, but for your body. So if your mom isn’t super into face masks but loves a good bath, definitely look into getting her this.

OR If you want to make sure that your mom feels extra pampered this Christmas, get both sets! No one said you couldn’t 🙂 (well, except maybe your bank account, but do we really ever listen to that anyway?) 

36. Updated Sibling Portrait 

Moms LOVE photos! Don’t deny it, a big portion of your childhood was spent posing for mom’s camera. Feed into her love of photos and memories by getting all of your siblings together and get an updated photo and then frame it for her.

Your mom will DIE over this sentimental Christmas gift you did just for her! 

37. Birthstone Necklace
gifts for mom

This is another very thoughtful and sentimental gift that is the perfect Christmas gift idea for mom. It’s a necklace that has all the birthstones of her kids on it. That way she has a piece of y’all wherever she goes!

38. Gift Cards 

I always want to include this one because I think that when we are shopping for those that we love the most we tend to forget about it when REALLY gift cards can be the best gift that you can give. 

They let people choose whatever they want so that they are always happy with what you got them. So if your mom is picky and/or you’re in a rush, a gift card is always your best option! 

39. Cheese Board

If your mom loves to host, get her a cheese board where she can put anything on it. It’s the perfect and super thoughtful Christmas gift idea for mom! 

40. Bath Tray

Bath trays provide a next level bath experience. So if your mom loves baths, definitely look into this as her gift! Tip: get one with a wine glass holder, those go over especially well!

41. Hand Cream

This is a great stocking stuffer Christmas gift idea for moms, unless you get like a super expensive and nice kind of hand cream for her then definitely make a gift gift.

But mom’s need stocking stuffers too ya know, so put some hand cream and a face mask and a gift card in her stocking for Christmas morning! 

42. Yoga Mat 

Moms need relaxation right? Like if you ask them what they want, 9 times out of 10 they will respond with “peace and quiet”. Yoga, provides that for them. So help them get more into yoga by getting them a nice yoga mat. IT’s a great idea for a Christmas gift for mom!

Gifts for College Students: 17 Best Gifts According To College Students

gifts for college students

Whether its christmas, graduation, birthday, or just a random surprise, there are a million gifts for college students. But what do they really want?

As a junior in college, I have received all types of college gifts. I always appreciate them, but there are definitely gifts I use more than others. 

I gathered my favorite college gifts and asked all my friends (girls and guys!) what they have loved or want for the ultimate list of gifts for college students.

Here is a one stop place where you can find 17 gifts for college students that they will love.

The Best Gifts for College Students:

Bluetooth headphones are a college essential and beloved item by many.

Some of my college friends said that bluetooth headphones have been their favorite purchase of the year and that they didn't know how they lived without them before (slightly dramatic, but you can clearly tell these are a hit).

The original Apple AirPods are the most popular wireless headphones for college students. They hold battery for a long time and don't break easily. However, if you are looking for a cheaper alternative these wireless headphones come in at just $27.99.

An insulated water bottle is always an appreciated gift for college students.

This water bottle is an extremely popular one for both guys and girls. Not only can you get really cool patterns, but it keeps your water cold for 24 hours. I have multiple S'Well water bottles and they truly do keep your drink cold for that long. 

You can find this water bottle and more patterns here.

One of the by far best games for college students.

This is so much fun to play with friends and an easy thing to whip out when everyone is hanging out.

Does the college student already have Cards Against Humanity? They now offer hilarious extension packs you can add to the game. You can find those here.

4. Portable Phone Charger
best gifts for college students portable phone charger

Theres two things college students are always dealing with: Always being on the go and their phone never charged.

A portable phone charger is the perfect gifts for college students and can easily fit in a backpack or purse.

Don't think the college student will like this color? Don't worry, it also comes in black, red, and silver.

5. iPhone Charger

You know how socks always go missing? Well, the same thing happens with chargers. 

We (college students) LOVE iPhone chargers and could never have enough.

This is the pack my friends and I continually go back too because of the variety of sizes it offers.

This pack also comes in different colors.

6. Custom Coordinate Necklace

This custom coordinate necklace is a popular staple for college students and brings an important place closer to them.

I got this necklace for my sisters and I with our hometown on it so when we are at school, we have a reminder of where we are from.

I also know people get the coordinates of their school, because well, school pride ;).

Whatever location you want to get customized on this, this is the perfect special gift for a college student. 

7. The 6-Minute Diary

With all the things college students have to plan for, it's often hard to live in the moment and appreciate what is happening around you.

This 6-minute journal is a favorite because it helps you reflect on everything happening and going on.

A bonus is that in ten years when they find this diary, they can relive the moments of their college days.

8. Bluetooth Speaker

Whether you are in your dorm/apartment alone or with friends having music on can help put you in whatever mood you are aiming for.

This JBL Flip 3 Splash-proof Portable Stereo is one of the most popular speakers because of how loud it can play, it won't break it drinks get spilled on it, and can easily fit in a purse or backpack to take somewhere.

9. Slippers

Nothing is better than coming home from a long day of classes and putting on some nice fluffy slippers.

Also, lets be real...college dorm/apartment floors probably don't get cleaned as much as they should. These slippers will stop nasty stuff on your floor from getting stuck in your toes.

The UGG slippers are the best and will last forever. If you want a cheaper option, these slippers are less than $20 dollars.

10. Yeti Mug
christmas gift for college student

If the student you are gifting this too is a coffee or tea lover, this is a must.

Truly the best insulated travel mug and keeps your drink hot all through the day. Plus, it doesn't spill which is very important.

If you don't like white, there are 12 other colors to choose from.

11. Cozy Blanket

Is there a more comfy looking blanket?! I'm thinking no.

You can't go wrong with a blanket as a gift, it is a hit for all kinds of people.

Dorms and apartments have a history of being freezing since no one wants to pay for a lot of heat. A blanket is a must in the winter.

This blanket comes in a variety of colors and sizes (twin, queen, and king). 

12. Apple Watch

Apple Watches are the "it" item and something that everyone wants.

Not only can it help you stay organized and on top of your work, it can also help look at your fitness and sleep patterns.

This is a bigger gift, but one of the most wanted gifts of the year for college students.

Looking for gifts for college students guys? Don't worry, this also comes in black and gray.

14. Philips Electric Toothbrush

Have you ever seen a more beautiful toothbrush?

Once you have converted to an electric toothbrush, there's no going back. Your teeth will feel so much cleaner.

There are all types of electric toothbrushes, you can find more here.

15. Warm Socks

You literally cannot go wrong gifting college students fuzzy socks. They are about the best thing ever.

This pack of 6 is available for around $12.99.

16. Gift Cards

Gift cards are truly something all college students want.

The places my friends and I like gift cards too: Amazon, gas station, Target, and food places.

I know this one is obvious, but it really is what we want!

17. Fuzzy Sweatshirt
gift for college student

Yes, this sweatshirt is as amazing as it looks.

My sister recently purchased a similar one from Nordstrom (you can find it here for $78) and every time she wears it I beg her to give it to me.

These are really popular and for good reason. You are basically a walking blanket wearing this!

18. Peekaboo's Ponytail Hat

These hats are the ultimate gift for any college girl that lives in a cold state.

Not only is this hat super cute, but it also has two secret holes in the back (you can't see them!) that you can stick your hair through when wearing a ponytail.

These are especially popular for college runners because they allow you to wear a ponytail while keeping your head warm!

These hats are offered in SO many colors. You can see the other colors here.

These gifts for college students are guaranteed to be a hit and will have you named as an amazing gift giver.

    27 Insanely Important Questions To Ask Future Roommates

    This post is all about questions to ask future roommates.

    questions to ask future roommates

    I remember one of the hardest/awkwardest things about choosing who you were going to live with in college was coming up with questions to ask future roommates.

    Like, how are you supposed to have full on conversations with them when you don't know anything about them?! It kind of sounds like it would be easier because you have anything and everything to talk about. But it's definitely not. 

    You also don't want to come off weird haha. I was SO worried about sounding like a freak to people I was talking too.

    These are the 27 of the best questions to ask future roommates to get to know them (without sounding weird 😉 ).

    Questions To Ask Future Roommates:

    1. What's your class schedule like?
    2. What's your major?
    3. Oh, that's cool! What do you want to do with that?
    4. Do you plan to get involved in any clubs on campus already?
    5. How did you find out about them, if so?
    6. Do you have a job?

    7. Are you more of a morning or night person?
    8. Have you already purchased some items for your dorm room?
    9. Do you have any allergies?

    Be sure to ask them how severe their allergies are if they say that they have any, too. That way you have an idea of what you can and cannot have in the room if you choose to live with them!

    10. Are You Willing to Split Items for the Dorm That We Will Both Use?

    TIP: If they aren't, see if they are willing to buy one thing while you get another. Like you buy the coffee maker, but they buy the microwave. That way it is a somewhat even split!

    11. Do you like a room hot or cold?
    12. How do you study?
    13. Do you have any pets?
    14. What do you think about drinking and smoking?

    TIP: Your college roommates do not have to have the same stance on these subjects as you do. TBH that's kind of hard to come by! But just make sure that their views on drinking and partying are ones that you can deal with. If not, honestly look for another roommate because it makes the living situation VERY difficult!

    15. What are your favorite foods?
    16. Do you plan on going through sorority recruitment?
    17. What's your favorite way to spend a rainy day?
    18. What were you involved in in high school?
    19. What's your family like?
    20. Are you bringing a car?
    21. Do you plan to go home often?
    22. Why did you choose this school?
    23. What are you most excited about for college?
    24. Do you have any friends that are coming to this school?
    25. Are you a confrontational person or more passive aggressive?

    This question is SO important to ask because you and your roommate will get upset with each other and need to talk it out. So it's important to know how they will handle getting upset so that 1) you can be courteous to them and 2) so that you know how to handle yourself in these situations too! 

    26. How do you ideally want to decorate your dorm room?

    You have to know if your interior designer skills mesh or conflict with theirs because you want ot like your dorm room too! Also, maybe talk budget too.

    27. Which dorm hall do you want to live in?
    28. What snacks should always be in the room?
    29. How do you feel about guests?

    This is another very important question to ask a potential roommate because if your philosophies don't align, it makes for another very difficult living situation!

    30. Coffee or tea?
    31. What are you looking for in an ideal roommate?
    32. What's your favorite TV show? Movie?
    33. Do you think you will study in your dorm room a lot?

    This is a great question to ask so that you can get an idea of what your potential roommate will be expecting out of the room most of the time!

    34. What's something you can't live without?
    35. What do you want to know about me?

    Always kind of end with this or something that will turn the convo back to where they can ask questions about you! It makes it seem a lot less like an interrogation.
