Don’t Worry

This blog is more for incoming freshmen! It’s weird to think that my freshmen year is coming to an end. I know when the time came to start packing for Butler I got so confused. Neither of my siblings lived in dorms when they went to college, so I had no idea what to expect. Since I was so lost in the madness I thought I would post some pictures of what dorm life is like so you can start getting an idea!

First of all, Butler is really great at providing you with lists of things that you should bring with you to live on campus! They will post it on the class of 2016 facebook page, so you can start getting an idea of what you need to buy!

Second of all, for such a small space you can arrange your dorm in a couple of different ways. I have seen all different kinds of arrangements whether it’s in Ross Hall or in Schwitzer. I thought it would help incoming freshmen if I post some pictures of my dorm, so you can get an idea of space. Sorry boys, but I live in the all girls dorm so the rooms aren’t exactly the same, but they are very similar! I will try and get pictures of the guy’s dorms in another blog.

This is my closet. There are two shelves inside the closet which is really nice! Some girls put their dressers in the closest, but my roommate and I decided to keep ours out!

This is one side of our room, which is our closets. Some rooms have the closets on separate sides of the room, but ours are next to each other.

This is the way my room mate and I have our beds set up. Neither of us wanted top bunk so we decided to do our room like this!

We put our desks across from our beds. Basically you live in a square!

So you have seen all four sides of my room. There are so many ways to arrange your room, but you really can’t plan any of it. You just have to wait until you get here for the arrangement. If you have any questions, please ask!
