Few experiences are as exciting and nerve-wracking as that first day in the dorm room—will you and your roommate get along? Will they share your taste in music and TV shows? Will you be able to make that 8 a.m. class you regret having scheduled? Will you be able to concentrate on studying in such a small, shared space? For the next two semesters, your dorm room will be the place you call home. And transforming it into a cozy, well-organized dwelling/study space is easier than you think. It all comes down to having the right dorm room essentials.
Don’t think of your dorm room and its empty walls as a boring, bare-bones space that makes you feel like the newest inmate to join the cast of Orange is the New Black. Instead, think of it as a blank canvas that’s just begging for a creative college student like you to unleash its full potential. Choose a theme that expresses your personality, hobbies or long-term goals. It could be travel, music, inspiring quotes or something that reflects your major of choice, whether it’s science, fashion or fine art. Bonus: For a limited time, they’re 50% off.
A few strategically placed pillows will help add instant style and comfort to your bed or study chair. Vary the patterns, shape and color for a look that truly feels like home.

Staying organized is essential to making the grade and adjusting to life on your own. Your schedule and to-do list will be wildly different from what you’re used to, so stay on track by displaying your tasks front and center.
Of course, no study session is complete without a few study breaks … right?
