The secret to keeping your child happy at college

I remember the day like it was yesterday.

January, 1979. Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington.

My dad and I shuffled into the first room at the Gamma dorm.  Every horizontal surface held an empty Black Velvet bottle.  Not my cup of tea.

After looking at a few more rooms, I finally found an acceptable room whose current occupant liked to listen to Cheap Trick and the Clash and play endless games of backgammon after finishing studying.  We became fast friends.

As I write this post, hundreds of thousands of young Americans are going through the same transition I endured in 1979.  This period can be a bit of a mixed bag.  Great to be off on one’s own for the first time.  Lots of new friends.  But a bit off-putting as well.  So in order to make the early days of your child’s new college adventure as soothing as possible, why not make sure that he/she is surrounded by products made by members of his/her extended American family?

What if you could take the hassle out of this process?  Well, you can.  You just need to know where to turn.

Thankfully, there is a firm that makes this process easy.

American Made Dorm offers lots of products for dorm room beds, all of which are made by members of our extended American family.  Even college students need their sleep, and American Made Dorm has quite a few choices in bedding.  They have a very fetching Blue bedding pattern, Turquoise elephant bedding, probably popular at Alabama, and a fetching Red Damask bedding set.

American Made Dorm offers matching comforters, sheets, pillows, bed skirts and towels.

American Made Dorm also sells great rugs for dorm rooms.  The rugs are made in the USA by Milliken and are mold and mildew resistant, and environmentally friendly.  Best of all, you can order a rug to show your school spirit at the same time as you are providing jobs for members of our extended American family.  No matter whether you support the Clemson Tigers, the Florida Gators,or the Georgia Bulldogs,

American Made Dorm has a rug for you.  Sadly, it doesn’t seem that American Made Dorm currently features a Washington Huskies rug.  Life is a series of bitter disappointments.

So you really have a win-win opportunity here.  You can furnish you kiddo’s college dorm room with great products that will allow him/her to really feel at home while at the same time supporting members of our extended American family by purchasing the products they make.

Go team!!!!!
