    Old-school video game system. You can get an NES pretty cheap and the games are plentiful if you check garage sales.

    BTW: If you get an NES, get the original, front loading model. They can be connected to a modern TV easily. You'll need two RCA jacks and a Y-Adaptor (if you're using a stereo TV). This eliminates the RF Mod and gives you much higher picture quality.

    As many DVDs as possible. Everyone will love you. And some various card/board games don't hurt.

    Apples to apples is a good game for drunken fun.

    N64 with smash bros/mario kart can also be fun.

    I agree with above. Nerf guns are amazing.

    haha some friends of mine put a slip-and-slide down the hall of Dykstra once - lubed it up with KY instead of water :)

    If it's an apartment-stlye dorm (door leads to outside), then you could buy markers that you write on the windows with. It's fun to doodle or put up quotes for the week, and it removes with Windex. They're called Crayola Window Markers.
