4. Word up

It’s not just pictures that can really enhance a dorm room, either. Words can be just as powerful. You could put some quotations up that mean something to you, and these could be relevant to your interests. If you’re studying literature then you might want the words of your favourite author or even one of their famous characters on the wall. If social sciences are more your thing, then how about a quotation from a famous historical figure or politician? You could alternatively choose famous words of a scientist, mathematician, artists, actor, or anything that really takes your fancy. And don’t despair that you can’t write on or pain the walls, either. You can cut the letters out of sheets of paper or card and stick them up, and if you use old scraps, it won’t cost you a penny (but it will still look really cool).
