Our College Dorm Poster Mashups Will Make Sure You've Got the Best Decor on Your Hall
Have you ever noticed that every college student ever seems to decorate their dorm room with the exact same posters? Apparently the moment we move out of our childhood bedrooms, we’re at such a loss as to how to fill up the blank, cinderblock expanse of our new digs that we just do what everyone else before us has done, whether it’s kissing the war goodbye, walking across Abbey Road, or keeping calm and carrying on. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; indeed, once you graduate, you’ll probably decide you’re old enough now to be above using posters as wall art. Embrace these days while you can, for soon they shall be gone, like so many French fries from a dining hall plate.
But you know what? You can do better than the same old, same old you’ll spot on all of your neighbors’ walls. So here — we designed better dorm posters for you. Take a couple of classics, mash ‘em together, and voila! Something new and exciting that no one else on your hall will have! Even better, if you’ve only got one spot left and you’re torn between hanging one poster or another, you don’t have to make an actual decision. Just hang ‘em both up and call it a day.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go find some blu-tack. And also some Goo Gone, because no matter what it says on the package, that shit will leave a mark. Pro tip, incoming freshman.
