Back to Campus

This year, make your life easier by starting your back-to-college prep early. Lucky for you, Sam’s Club, has everything they need for dorm life. Use Sam’s Club as your one-stop back-to-class stop. Get your college-bound kids get outfitted with all the essentials, including electronics, clothing, school supplies, snacks, vitamins and so much more. College kids will also need moving supplies, dorm decor, personal care and storage solutions.

Electronics might be on top of the list, and Sam’s Club has them. Students need portable solutions, so you may consider an iPad or other tablet. They are compact, easy to carry in a backpack, and they’re powerful enough to do a lot of the heavy lifting. Your kids can do research, save documents, send e-mail and check their online sports schedules. Add an external keyboard and they can even use the tablet to write papers. Include accessories like a case to keep it protected.

Make sure they have a quiet, comfortable place to study. Set them up with a new desk, light, or comfortable reading chair. With the right setup, they'll be in study mode in no time.

Next up: snacks! Stock up on groceries for easy-to-cook options for busy days on campus. From groceries and dorm fridges to kitchen essentials to grab-and-go snacks, they’ll be all set up.

And, when you send them off to campus, consider a "farewell for now" gift card. With so many options available, you can choose a card for them to shop for school supplies, meals, music, electronics, entertainment and more. Or, get them NCAA and HBCU gear so they can show their team spirit. And be sure to visit the Photo Center to create a customized mug or photo album for them to take along.
