Room Transformations: Before & After

Room transformations are one of the most exciting parts about moving in and settling into your new home! Take a picture before unpacking and then one after you are done moving in to see how you have transformed an empty space into one that is all yours.

You don’t think about how much you will miss home. This picture always brings back those exciting feelings of what it was like to start the next chapter of your life. It also documents your awesome Tetris skills and that is a true accomplishment to remember!

Meeting Your Roommate and/or Suitemates

Meeting the people you are going to live with for the following school year is an exciting and nerve wracking experience all in one! Whether these are your long-time friends, or complete strangers, taking a picture together to commemorate living together is a wonderful memory to have.
