Dorm rooms made like home

Dorm rooms— notorious for uncomfortable beds, stuffy air and odd furniture setups. While this is uncomfortable during the school year, it’s all made even more uncomfortable in mid-August.

MIPA students Maggie Schaller and Megan Pisarczyk challenged the traditional setup and created a new organization plan for their dorm room.

“We originally changed the room because we wanted to have more space, but then we realized it would be a really cute set up,” Schaller said. “We’re best friends and we thought if we put our beds together we could spend more time with each other.”

The dorm room was originally set up with cots in each corner of the dorm room. Furniture such as shelves and drawers were stored underneath the beds.

“Everything just kind of happened; none of this was planned,” Pisarczyk said. “We decided at one in the morning on the first night we wanted to feng shui our dorm room.”

The "Mags and Megs" poster hung on the door of students Maggie Sehaller and Megan Pizarczyk. The sign is on the door is their "pride and joy," according to Sehaller.

The roommates brought their own sheets and blankets to make their beds more colorful, “homey” and comfortable. They also brought fans from home to cool down their room and make it less muggy, according to Pisarczyk.  And to top off their room, they created a sign reading “Mags and Megs” to put a signature on their set up.

“The setup makes it like our own room,” Schaller said. “It like our house now; it used to to be a house but now it’s our home.”
