Personalizing your Dorm Room

For some people adjusting to the residence lifestyle can be hard. It will most likely be the first time you’re on your own and after the first month there’s a good chance you’ll start to feel homesick. That’s why it’s important for you to personalize your dorm the way you want to make the adjustment easier.

The dorm rooms are small, making it easy for clutter to fill up fast, so bring things that can hold a lot of items for storage. Having something to hold your writing utensils, makeup or extra clothes can make a huge difference.

Start From Scratch!
