Being away from the familiarity, the habitual schedules and the friends we have back home can be quite a shock. Days at Delphian are packed with new experiences so it's nice to have a dorm room you love hanging out in. Here are a few simple things you can do to make your room feel cozier and more like home:
- Hang photos. Hanging photos with meaning specifically is what makes this so special. You can order photos online to be printed professionally or print photos for your dorm room in the Student Council Art Room or Computer Science Lab.
- Make your bed comfortable. Get comfy blankets and pillows that add to the aesthetic of the room as well as a foam mattress pad for your bed to increase your sleep quality.
- Simple decor. Adding decor to your room makes it more welcoming to walk into. This can include posters of your favorite bands, posters of revolutionary TV shows like The Office and Friends, and string lights.
- Become friends with your roommates. This is the most important piece of making your room feel like home. It can be challenging to live with someone that might have different ways of living than you, but talk with them, find common interests and focus on the good side of who they are!
Good luck in making your dorm room feel like home this semester!
