The Holiday Decorations You Need For Your Dorm

Finals season might not be very festive, but that doesn’t mean your dorm room can’t be!

I know that many college students are tight on cash right now, so here are just a few cost-friendly ways to decorate your room this holiday season.

1. Lights

Fairy lights, Christmas tree lights, bar lights- use them all! The ambiance of your dorm room will instantly change once you have them plugged in. You can wrap them around your bed frame, hang them from the ceiling, or attach them to the walls depending on the vibe you want. And don’t be afraid to experiment with different shapes and colors!

2. Paper Snowflakes

These can be a great way to spice up your dorm room for the holidays, especially if you live in an area where snow is not common. Get together with your roommate(s) and create a winter wonderland that could rival Buddy the Elf’s decorations. Just make sure not to leave the little scraps of paper all over the floor afterward!

3. A Small Tree

If you are missing out on decorating your Christmas tree at home with your family, this is the perfect opportunity just to get your own! Sure, it’s not a “real” tree, but being able to decorate a tree is certainly a fun part of the holiday season, no matter how small it might be. Just make sure you don’t forget to buy a tree topper!

4. Matching Advent Calendars


Whatever you're into- makeup, chocolate, jewelry- there's an advent calendar for that. Why not treat yourself this Christmas with matching advent calendars for you and your roommate(s)? Nothing is more fun than waking up to a surprise gift every day.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
