Leaving home for the first time is exasperating and exhilarating, all wrapped into one huge knot in your stomach. While college is filled with new adventures (new friends, cute girls and boys and no curfew being three of our favorites), everyone is going to get homesick at some point. Nothing says small living quarters quite like a dorm room. Sadly, dorms aren’t known for being the most comfortable or homey places to live. Finding the perfect dorm room ideas for can be challenging but you can be creative. Remember, you will likely not be able to nail anything to your walls or paint your dorm room, so ignore any ideas that will leave you having to do any of these. Money can also be really tight in college and meal plans can be really expensive through the school. If you were looking for a way to have more to eat and save some major money, buying a small refrigerator and microwave can certainly make a huge difference.
We’ve found a few websites that may be able to provide ideas and lists of essentials that you may need during your dorm life.
