Living on campus has definite perks, but the sentiment about dorm rooms themselves is a little more ambiguous.
Being able to wake up 10 minutes before class and still make it there on time might not make up for your fourth floor room on laundry days in your mind.
No matter how you personally feel about them, dorms are almost a right of passage in college.
My name is Tobi, and I am a journalism student at the University of Florida. I’m currently doing my time on campus, and eagerly waiting for the mornings that I don’t wake up to my roommate’s alarm.
For now, my dorm is my home, and I try to make the most of it.
I created These For Walls to share how students are decorating their dorms, and to help you find ideas that you can use for your own space.
Despite the pit falls of living on campus, most of us want our dorms to both be functional and reflect our personalities. I hope this blog helps you figure out what that looks like for you.
