Check out some of our favorite dorm room transformations of 2022

The beginning of the school year calls for new friends, new experiences, new responsibilities, and of course a new living space! 

For many incoming students, moving into a college residence hall is an exciting time as it is their first home-away-from-home. As students start to move in, August is full of room transformations on social media showcasing how they make the space their own. 

This year, we joined in on the fun using a trending sound on TikTok to feature one of our favorite before and after dorm room transformations. Take a look at this video to see how first-year students, Bianca and Emily, decorated their dorm room in Koonce Hall!

We wanted to see some of the other decorated rooms across campus, so we shared the TikTok to our Instagram account and created a “sticker” that students could engage with to show off their own rooms here on campus to their Instagram story. Here are some of our favorite submissions!

Thank you to all the Golden Flashes who submitted their rooms, they were all amazing! 

Be sure to follow our Instagram and TikTok accounts to keep up with all the updates from Kent State.
