Perhaps one of the biggest anticipations for incoming first-year college students is trying to imagine what it will be like living away from home for the first time. For most, it will also involve sharing a living space with someone else for the first time. Meeting your roommate(s) can be a challenge or the beginning of lifelong friendship(s).
Regardless of what transpires from this multi-person social arrangement, it will mostly happen inside a dorm room. That’s why you may want to put some thought into optimizing that little piece of campus that will become your living space. Thus, I thought it might be appropriate to mention a few creative ideas about how to go about doing that.
