Residential Life

One of the most difficult things about college for a visual person like myself is making a dorm room look and feel as pretty and comfortable as a room back home. This is something I'm working on. Though I've collected piles of fashion photographs and obtained a large supply of tape, I don't want to overwhelm my tiny, light-filled space.
Still, there's something so nice about having this space to ourselves ("us," of course, being my roommate and I), as s small as it is; in fact, I find that open spaces can be much more anxiety-inducing than small and intimate ones like these. Every night, I snuggle into my jersey sheets and polka-dotted duvet and wake up with sunlight pouring through the window facing the Columbia College campus. Maybe I'll still rearrange it - hey, maybe I'll try that feng shui thing - but right now, it's really not so bad at all.

  2. what a battle it is so try and make a dorm room homey, when there is so little space! I suggest big tapestries that you can pin in different styles, then you can add some pictures on top of that and it's not too busy. Very difficult to create a cuddly space (cuddle-friendly environment is very important to me). Good luck! I hope you like columbia, I'm heading off to skidmore tomorrow and will be facing a similar battle haha

  5. The distinguishing feature of this University is its predominant residential character. This allows students not only to study but also to live together, to participate in extracurricular activities & become part of a cooperative community of work & service.

  6. The specific function of this School is its prevalent personal personality. This allows learners not only to research but also to stay together, to sign up in extracurricular actions & become part of a accommodating group of work & assistance.
