7. Decorate for the Holidays

Decorate for the Holidays

For many college students living in dorms, it will be the first time they’ve been away from their friends and families for the holidays. Even if it’s not your first time being apart for the holidays, there’s hardly anything more festive and uplifting that bringing out the holiday decorations. Add a sting of lights, a little holiday color, and you’re already feeling cheery.

Bring a few decorations from home if you can, but if you don’t have any from home you can get decorations from a dollar store or second-hand store for cheap, or make your own! Lacy snowflakes or fat pumpkins can easily be cut from paper, and you’ll have a lot of fun making them! And don’t just stick to Christmas – there are plenty other holidays to celebrate too.

It’s important to feel comfortable in your dorm room to ensure your focus is on studying and enjoying college life. For freshers especially, leaving for college could be the first major upheaval in your life so make it as easy on yourself as you can.
