College gives students a place to express themselves individually in many different ways, whether it is through music or  clothing.  One of the best ways of showing personality in college is through dorm room decorations. Different decorations reflect the different personalities in college, also, room-mates can have fun when planning out their decorations and preparing for the school year.

Listed below are some of the most popular from this year:

Fairy Lights: These are small lights on a string typically hung around the walls. They add ambiance and a nice change from the fluorescent dorm lighting.

Posters: Perhaps the most broad category, posters can be about anything from motivational quotes, to bands, to sports teams.
