For those of you who are still in denial that your Hogwarts Acceptance letter is “just an Owl away”, hold onto your broomsticks because you’re in the for the most magical adventure of your life, courtesy of Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia (basically the American version of Hogwarts).

Maybe the first of it’s kind to be held in the muggle world, the Harry Potter Festival and Quidditch tournament will transform the school that needs no introduction the from October 21st-22nd. While it’s not quite the Hogwarts Express, the SEPA transportation will escort you to plenty of Hogwarts activities including Defense of the Dark Arts classes, a Triwizard Maze, Live Owls, and even a Sorting Hat Ceremony.

With school back in session and everyone getting “sorted” to their dormitories, we were inspired to create a Hogwarts House themed Back to School Style Series for this month of September. Each week we will represent one of the Hogwarts Houses for some serious style and dorm room needs (we seriously hope to see #harrypotterdorms trending just as hard as the lavish dorms at Ole Miss). Today we are proud to be representing the beloved and brave Gryffindor House.

Here are seven things you may want to snag if you identify as the Ron’s, Harry’s, and Hermione’s of the Wizarding World. And even if you don’t, we bet you meet a friend at your college or university who just might!

3. Morphing-Mugs – $24.99  Magic mugs that actually show the Maurders Map when you whisper “I solemnly swear I am up to no good” (okay it doesn’t, but the real reason is just as cool) has us saying take our money
