Pivot power mini
Students tend to have a plethora of devices, but not necessarily enough outlets to use and charge them all. As part of a 'starting college' package, you may want to consider buying a plug and USB combo -- such as the Pivot power mini.
Once plugged into an outlet, the Pivot provides the user with two standard outlets and two USB ports.

Going to college and using Skype to keep in contact with friends and family doesn't mean you have to invest in a high-end webcam.
