By  |  0 Comments

Tired of looking at your sad, ugly dorm room walls? Consider today your lucky day. You can enter to win a $250 shopping spree to College Magazine Shop. You won’t get that chance unless you enter here, right now.

Thank you for participating. This giveaway has ended. Congratulations to Eleora Pasternack from UMass Amherst on winning a $250 Shopping Spree to our College Magazine Shop!

College Magazine Shop can help you decorate the dorm of your dreams. From chic marble-patterned tapestries to Great Gatsby duvet covers, we want your room to speak to your personality. Back-to-school season is just around the corner. We know you want it all and we want to give it to you.

Once you win that $250, you need to make some decisions. So if you struggle to decide between ordering pepperoni or cheese pizza for lunch, choosing which trendy tapestry to hang in your room for an entire year will feel impossible. Luckily, we bundled a few items together to ease your indecisiveness. You’re welcome.

1. Bookworm’s Bundle

Finding time to read for pleasure feels basically impossible with constant textbook-reading homework. And you miss that creative outlet that reading Pride and Prejudice gave you. Use your dorm room to show the world your favorite classics when you’re too busy to re-read them for the 100th time.

2. Adventurer’s Bundle

Admire the beauty of ocean views and forest scenes without leaving your dorm. Become one with nature while you study, sleep or relax with these dorm pieces that satisfy your wanderlust. The neutral colors will easily pair with the dorm room decor that you already use.

4. Hipster’s Bundle

Hipsters never admit they’re hipsters. But we all know what a hipster’s room looks like. I like the sparkler tapestry in this bundle; its artsy vibes remind me of summertime and distract me from being holed up in my dorm studying.

5. Animal Lover’s Bundle

Sadly, most dorm rooms don’t allow pets. But luckily for you, they do allow animal-themed decor. So if you miss your furry friend at home, add some of his friends around the room to keep you from feeling homesick.

Pro tip: The next time you struggle to finish that 10-page paper, you might find yourself inspired by your Rory Gilmore approved walls.
