Fall 2020 is finally here, many of us are returning to our homes away from home, excited to make memories with our roommates, and for many first-year students, experience what college has to offer for the first time.
A sense of newfound freedom, living away from your parents, sharing a room with somebody for the first time, or having your own room for the first time. I know your mind is running amuck with thoughts like, “Is it going to be like the movies? Is it going to be like the TikTok dorm transformations that turn a room reminiscent of a prison cell into a Pinterest dream board?” Look no further, I have the answer for you — no, unfortunately not this year.
COVID-19 has shifted our lives dramatically and has also shifted our dorm aesthetics as well, but that doesn’t have to further dampen your mood. If you are living in a college dorm this year, you can still have it look cute and be safe to ensure that campus doesn’t shut down two weeks in (I’m looking at you, UNC).
With these 3 tips, you are going to be keeping your dorm clean and keeping yourself safe in the fight against COVID-19.
While this semester is going to be far from normal, and in order to return to normal everyone must follow the rules put in place by EU, especially by residential students since you will be on campus more than anybody else. Together, we have to stay clean, mask up, stay six feet apart, and unfortunately not party for the greater good of the campus community and so everyone can safely experience the ups and downs of college life.
