Because fall is arguably the best season.

​5 Ways To Decorate Your Room For Fall

There’s something about fall that always puts a huge smile on my face as soon as I think about it. I’m not sure if it’s the changing of the leaves, the pumpkin spice anything (which I tried for the first time this year) or the fact that we get to dress up as anything we can possibly imagine come Halloween, but to me fall is the greatest season ever. It’s also a really fun season to decorate for, as my suite mate and I proved the other night in the midst of our giggling and struggles with fun tack. So whether you’re a college student looking to make your dorm a bit more festive or you’re living at home and just love fall as much as I do, here are five great ways to decorate for this time of year!

1. Garland

The only time I ever used garland was the silver kind for my Christmas tree but garland is a fast and easy way to add something to the room! For our common room we got a Halloween themed black and orange one and we also got a garland of fake fall leaves for just $5. Very simple but very cute and super affordable. All you need are some command hooks to keep them up and you’re done!

2. Gel Clings

Now these are honestly the cutest things in the whole entire world and I am so happy we had some. For those who don’t know what these are, gel clings are basically squishy little shapes that you can stick onto mirrors or windows. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to apply these as they are super easy to use and add a little something in places where you wouldn’t think of putting anything.

3. Construction Paper

Sometimes decorations can be expensive but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make your own! For fall you can just grab some orange, red, yellow and brown construction paper you may have lying around and cut them into little leaves. All you need to do is get some fun tack and you can stick them wherever you want! You don’t have to stop at just the leaves, though. You can cut out fun phrases or make a cute little cluster with the names of your roommates or suite mates. Get creative!

4. Door signs

Blank white doors are no fun when the rest of the room is decorated. We managed to find cute felt designs that were only about $2 or $3 at Michael’s and I think it tied the room together nicely. It’s easy to hang up and with so many different colors and designs you’re sure to find one that best suits your perfect fall inspired room.

5. Candy Dish

We didn’t get around to doing this yet but a candy dish in the fall is a must. It ties together the whole idea of Halloween and you can combine warm fall colors for a pop of fun on your small coffee table. Bonus: Everyone can snack on their favorite treats. No one has ever complained about a little bit of candy.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
