The Ultimate College Pad

You have found a great sublease and now you need to transform it into the ultimate college pad. Well guys, have no fear. You can turn your house into the hot spot off campus by following a few simple, guidelines. Be prepared to swipe that credit card to make it happen because it ain’t cheap. But fame never comes cheap, right? OK, Let’s get started.

The TV is crucial. Without it, no college place is complete. The guys won’t come over for the big game or challenge you to a game of Halo without the bigscreen. So take your time and make a wise choice on this one. Prices will vary so shop around and check out your financing options.

Big Screen TV
  • At least 50” for viewing pleasure
  • Plasma / Wall Mountable
  • Enough inputs for DVD/VCR/Xbox or PS2
No TV is an island unto itself! Remember this. You found the perfect TV, now you need to put it to use. Here are some of the things you should consider adding to milk your TV for every penny.

Entertainment Accessories
  • DVD/VCR Player
  • CD/Stereo Receiver
  • Surround Sound
  • Xbox or PS2
High speed internet is crucial when you are in college. This one should be easy to sell the parents on. Just claim you actually need it for “educational purposes.” Yeah right! Anyhow, once you have convinced them of this you can set up a few additional things.

High Speed internet
  • Wireless Network
  • Xbox Live or PS2 online
  • Fantasy league sports
Let’s face it, guys are competitive. Without some means of releasing this competitive energy, male roomates will go nuts. There are a few things you can add to your house to help release these energies.

Indoor Gaming
  • Pool Table
  • Ping Pong Table
  • Foosball
  • Dartboard (Do not play while intoxicated - Bad Idea)
Now we can get down to the often overlooked, but extremely important stuff. If you have the luxury of living off campus during your college career, you should make the most of it. That is what these next few additions are designed to do. If you add these things to your house you are sure to please.

Icing on the Cake
  • Hot Tub
  • Wet Bar - stocked with your choice of beverages
  • Gas BBQ Grill
If you follow these guidelines, not only will you have an awesome college pad, you will be the talk of the town. Finally, throw a few parties to show off your goods and make a few friends.
