It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since that August that my Mom and Aunt took me to college. Just kidding – it’s been longer than that. I remember very clearly, however, how excited I was, as well as the very careful and thoughtful shopping that went into making sure I had everything I would need for the year ahead.
I’d seen the dorms on my tour and prospective student overnight visit, so I knew that my dorm room would be a far cry from my perfectly curated bedroom at home. I also knew that with the proper decoration, my freshman dorm room could feel like a home away from home. Which it did.
Here I’ve put together 10 of the dorm decorating ideas that I employed as a freshman, all the way through to Senior Year. I hope that these dorm room ideas will inspire you to feel more at home on campus, and help you finalize the decor that you’ll be taking with you in just a few weeks.
