What’s your favorite part about Brockport now that you’re here?

“My favorite part about Brockport is how welcoming the community is here! I also love the family I’ve developed in the Honors College.”

Down to the Details

Favorite three items:

  1. Wall decorations! I love the lights because they play a big role in making the dorm look comfortable and welcoming. Also, my posters are from my high school musicals that I was featured in, so they’re very important to me. Lastly, I have a picture frame collage of my family and friends.
  2. Vanity Mirror. It compliments the room!
  3. My bed. I find the colors are so pretty and it’s so comfortable. 

Where did you do most of your décor shopping?

Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, and Burlington.

Tips for Decorating a Dorm Room:

“First and foremost, make it feel like home. I also found a lot of inspiration by going on Pinterest and watching a lot of dorm videos on YouTube.” 

Can’t live without:

“I can’t live without my bed.”

Advice for next year’s freshmen?

“Use your vertical space as much as possible. It will make your room feel bigger!”
