I was so scared to move into my dorm at first. I only live 20 minutes from my college, but I still needed to find a way to make my home not so far away. The transition from home to college doesn’t have to be as dramatic as it seems. With a few simple additions to your dorm room, it can be transformed into a perfect home away from home.

​Some of my proudest purchases for my dorm room include my mattress pad, carpet, and fan (some major game changers in the dorm world). But, I have some even simpler dorm room accessories that will make your room feel like HOME.
