Light it Up!

From my experience, a pole lamp is essential for every dorm room.  It provides a simple way to create yellowish, mood lighting for all situations. I put a color light bulb at the top of my pole lamp to add a splash of color to the room.

Water Dancing Speakers are one of the main features in my room people can’t help but ask about.  When you plug them into a computer and turn on music, they light up with lasers and bounce water to the beat of the song.  It’s bizarre but extremely fun to watch!
