My topic today addresses dorm rooms and their “decor" (if, indeed, that term may apply to a room where college students live). Gender can play a significant part in how your future dorm room may look. If you are a guy, your room may benefit more from a Spartanesque approach. Simple functionality can pay off by making your room easier to clean, assuming that cleaning is, in fact, on your to-do list. A well-placed TV, futon, or empty beer can temple can augment your simple decorating tastes.
However, if you are female, well, then your room may function as a projection of your good taste and personality. Of course, if you're sharing your room with fellow females, then there may be a need for a United Nations-like summit to decide on what goes where.
