About This Quiz

For those of us who were fortunate enough to go to college, living in a dorm for at least one semester was a right of passage that every student should experience.

For some of us, having to share a small space with a complete stranger was a complete nightmare, but for others, it was one of the best times of our lives where we built life-long friendships.

Decorating a dorm can be both a pleasant and a stressful situation as trying to make as unfamiliar place homey can be difficult. We spend hundreds and in some cases thousands of dollars on bedding, appliances and stationary to make the place feel as comfortable as possible. We also bring posters and photos to remind us of the things and people we love most.

Some of us are lucky enough to have a friend or family member help us to decorate our dorm, while others have to do it all on their own, or rely on the help of newly made friends.

Have you ever wondered what your dorm design says about you? Well, if you recreate the look in this quiz by choosing all the furnishings and wall decor, we will try to guess which high school stereotype you were. Can we get it right? Only one way to find out!
