So recently I got a Netflix account with a friend of mine (in order to split the cost 😀 ) and it is AWESOME!!! Definitely a great source of entertainment for down time or just when you need to relax. If you don’t want to bring a TV to your dorm you can also catch alot of your shows on Netflix, which is also nice because then you can watch them whenever you want!!!
I am totally impressed with the selection that they offer and as long as you know how to manage your time responsibly I’d say that it is a pretty nice resource for college students, a resource of relaxation, entertainment, and fun that is 😉
It is also nice to be able to share an account with a close friend or roommate so you know that the money you are investing is going to use and also it reduces the cost (even though Netflix is already pretty cheap).
If you enjoy watching your stuff on a TV then by all means bring one, the University actually has free cable hookups for students to use so you can catch all the cool shows and movies that are aired. Free Wifi is also supplied to students so if you watch shows through Netflix or another site you don’t have to worry about additional costs.
I’m not advertising for anybody, just saying that there are some benefits to some of the sites out there, Netflix is my preferred one but, if you like another stick with it 😀 I’ve heard that Hulu is also a good one but, is more based on TV shows. Some networks like USA on channel 28 actually have websites too where you can watch episodes of your favorite shows, so thats another good option to consider. Whatever you choose for entertainment just enjoy and relax in your down time. Don’t abuse the privilege/luxury school is important too!!!
