Dorm Item is Craig's List for colleges, a free classified page for students to list items for sale. Like most good ideas, the concept is simple and well-executed (2.0 pimped-out). Although the site is only a little more than a month old, there's already a fair number of colleges and items listed (surely, the coverage from Techcrunch and others helped). But even if you're college isn't listed, DormItem is smart enough to include items at all colleges in your area. In other words, if you are looking for a bike at MIT, you'll see bikes at Harvard and Tufts, too. And the final clutcher for tentative students - post a listing and it will get fed straight to your Facebook account.
