Overview

When high school students think of college life, images of parties and new people and late-night pizza instantly come to mind. Only upon moving in does a freshman realize the buzz-killing downside to the blissful freedom: a 12 x 12 dorm room often shared with a stranger. With Knack Dorm Living, Casey Lewis—herself a college senior at the University of Missouri—provides the guide she searched for, in vain, in her freshman year. She offers invaluable tips on what to pack and what to buy, what to expect, decorating, clothes, and organizing time and money. This is an ideal high school graduation gift for high school seniors—both girls and guys—set to move away from home.

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.

She walks into her room. She quickly unpacks. When it is done it looks like a comfy cave with bean ags d tv set andbgame system and laptop and canopy bed and a swing. She sighs nd jumps onto her bed to take a nap.
