For College students, it is the time of year to go back to school (if you already haven't), make sure you have the following items for the new year:
Breathalyzer - Listen up, if you are going to drink away from the dorm or where ever you live while in school, make sure you are ok to go mobile. The BACtrack Go Keychain Breathalyzer, Portable Keyring Breath Alcohol Tester is small enough to go on your keychain. Also if you are hosting a party, you may be responsible for anyone getting a DWI/DUI coming from your party. It might be worth getting one of the larger units for situations like that and make sure no one is driving who shouldn't.
Decor - Just because you are living in a dorm or an apartment off campus, doesn't mean you can't have something classy looking on the walls. This set of six patent prints of brewing equipment by Idiopix (image above) would look great on any wall.
Lockable Mini Fridge - Got a shady roommate who claims he knows nothing about your missing beer? The Corby 1.24 Cu. Ft. Lockable Mini Cooler comes with two keys to secure your beer. Who do you give that second key to? Not your roomie, that's for sure. With stated dimensions of 17.9 x 15.2 x 18.7 inches, you will have plenty of room for beer and a few extras as well.
Independent Study/Science Experiment - Mr. Beer Premium Gold Edition 2 Gallon Homebrewing Craft Beer Making Kit. Did you get into homebrewing over the summer and want to continue making your own beer during the school year? This kit comes with everything you need and is small enough so it takes up little space. Besides if you run into any issues with an RA, you can inform them it is for a chemistry class you are taking.
BYOB Event - Going to that event where you can drink beer, but the venue doesn't have a beer vendor? Sounds like the perfect opportunity to BYOB! Carry your own beer safely in the Insulated Neoprene 6 Pack Beer Bottle Carrier with Opener. I have one of these and it is thick walled and durable. You can machine wash it and while I do not store my phone in the sleeve, it is a nice feature. Having an attached bottle opener is great so you can leave your favorite opener at home.
Remember to drink responsibly and only where it is allowed. Many schools/campuses have strict regulations concerning the use of alcohol. Check your school's rules to make sure you are good to go and don't end up on an episode of Campus Cops.
