You bought a hamper, a shower caddy, a mini fridge, and all the other essentials you’ll need for a year in a dorm. But that cinderblock-walled, prison cell-size room needs a little more than just a pretty bedspread to make it the envy of the entire dorm. It’s time to get decorating! Here’s HC’s list of the 50 cutest items to spruce up your dorm room this fall…you know, just to get you started.
Without them, your walls are just bare, sad cinderblock. Your walls need to be prettified, and HC is happy to report that these posters are a lot cheaper and easier to apply (and a lot more allowed by your housing department) than hiring a professional muralist.

Me too). How about a string of cocktails or a giant ice cream cone? Now I’m hungry—dining hall run, anyone?
