What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs,

blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and

format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

It is time for you to move out of the dorm and into your very first college apartment. This is a very exciting time, as it means one bathroom, a full kitchen and common area/living room for you and a couple of roommates. If your apartment is located on campus, most likely it will come fully furnished – beds, dressers, desks, closets, couches and chairs. Moving into your own on-campus apartment is super exciting and it’s fun to be able to call a place that you can call home.

If you have already been living in the dorm, then the items that you need for your apartment bedroom shouldn’t be much different. Keep in mind the size of your bed. Oftentimes, when upgrading from the dorm to an apartment, the size of the bed upgrades as well, from a twin to a full size mattress (usually they will still be extra-long). This means you will need to get full bedding sheets and possibly a new comforter and mattress pad. 

Otherwise, you can display your same old posters and photographs. Bring your clothes drying rack, room organizers, full-length mirror, alarm clock, and more. There are plenty of items you should get that are perfect for your bedroom in your apartment, and here are some of our favorites!
