College is, for most people, the first time they're living away from home, and as such, it's the first time that nobody gets to tell you how to decorate your space (dorm room regulations notwithstanding).
That poster your parents found too offensive? It can have pride of place at the head of your bed, and no one can tell you otherwise (though sure, they can judge you, but that's not your problem). That ridiculous chair that looks like a bug but really helps with your back: it's in. The lamp shaped like a space alien? Put it on the desk with pride!
Still, the way you organize that space tells us a lot about what extra-curricular hobbies are important to you, what your academic goals involve, and what your artistic tastes are. It even tells us how hard you intend to work. Do you have sports teams on the walls, or musicians you enjoy, or perhaps political slogans?
Do you prefer a standing desk, a beanbag chair, or a hammock? Do you throw back to the 80's with a lava lamp, or fight off the seasonal sads with a sun lamp? And how can we use all this information to figure out where you belong in college? Take this quiz to find out!
