15 college posters that will make you feel like you’re in another place

These are the perfect looks for your dorm.

Freshman year can seem scary. After all, there’s a lot of changes going on; from friends to towns, nothing will be exactly the same as it was in high school. For me, the scariest part was the idea of living in a dorm with strangers, but once I realized that I had the opportunity to decorate this tiny little space however I wanted, things started looking up.

There’s so much stuff to choose from! There’s bedding to think about, desk lamps, etc. But perhaps the most important part is what goes on the wall. The things is, posters can be insanely pricey when bought at certain specialty stores, but you can definitely find cheaper options. Below are some of my favorites; in all sizes, and for different tastes.
