    Great College Resource!

    I bought this book for my niece to give her for graduation. It's a fun read and makes you wish you were back in college. Lots of practical information not only for the first time college student, but anyone who will live in a dorm or a small space. The visuals were cool and the room makeover gave such creative ideas.
