Make it Individual
When the new school year rolls around and students move into dorm rooms at colleges around the globe, they want to turn these rooms into their very own private spaces, even if that space is being shared with another person. They also want all the comforts of home, including not only a place to sit, a place to sleep, and a place to study, but also a place to put reminders, important dates, photos of friends and family, and perhaps cute, funny, or inspirational quotes. For this latter purpose, of course most students choose dorm bulletin boards or, as they’re known in some circles, memory boards.
When it comes to bulletin boards, however, what some students don’t seem to realize is that they don’t have to settle for plain old prefabricated cork bulletin boards that just hang there on the wall looking “blah," not when they can make their own unique bulletin boards that will demonstrate their creativity and make a personal statement about who they really are to everyone who enters their room, even if their “room" is only half a room. Moreover, students can make their own bulletin boards for less than they’d pay for those plain cork bulletin boards that are mass-produced and, therefore, quite ordinary and rather unexceptional, regardless of what students thumbtack on them.
