Dorms aren't what they used to be


Seniors are applying to college right now and one of things they look forward to is getting their dorm and decorating their dorm rooms.  College dorm rooms used to be little square boxes with a bunkbed and a desk in it.  Students would have to walk down the hall to take a shower and had to look for creative ways to store stuff in their rooms.  Some cool posters, maybe a loft if you're so inclined, you might get lucky and have a game room in the basement but that is all changing.  As colleges look to recruit students they have to take creative approaches to getting them on their campus and one of the best ways to do that is upgrade their dorms and offer fitness & recreational facilities.  Check out this article in The New Republic about how dorms are changing on college campuses. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/114744/luxification-college-dorms  - you can check out the photo gallery here.  These are amazing dorm rooms. http://www.newrepublic.com/article/114739/gallery-ultra-luxe-college-dorm
