Kenyon Quint(essentials): Dorm-Friendly Decorating

By Kate Lindsay on July 25, 2013

If you couldn’t tell already, moving into a dorm room is one of my favorite parts of college. Throughout high school, I was constantly rearranging my room, and going through giant purges of my things. It was cathartic, like getting your teeth cleaned or getting a new haircut--a reason to start over. Now, I get to do that every year, learning from mistakes and ultimately making each room better than the last. The only fly in the ointment takes its shape in the form of housing regulations. No candles, no nails, no space heaters--nothing that could ruin the paint or set something on fire. After two years, however, I’ve found ways to make up for the things I can’t do. To prove it, I made a video of me setting up a makeshift dorm room in my basement using most of the decorations I had in my room this past year. After setting it up, I take it down. There’s no marks, holes, or blemishes in the paint. It all disappears faster than you can say “$100 room repair charge.”
