About This Quiz

College is a transformative time, a time for people to figure out who they are and come into their own. One way to do that is with the classes that are chosen, the friends that are made, and the dorm room decorations that are used. Now, with that said, the way you decorate your dorm does not set you up for a lifetime of design savvy. But that's mostly because you are limited on space and money when it comes to decorating your dorm. But come college move-in time, all over Instagram are these Southern belles who deck out their dorms in perfect Lily Pulitzer bedding, sheer curtains, plush rugs and the most drool-worthy art you've ever seen. They are living out the dream.

What would you do if you were given those same options? If money was no object, what items would you choose? From what stores would you shop that are usually off-limits because you are living off minimum wage, working three shifts a week. And what better way to use that newly decorated dorm room than to spark your love-life and figure out what you like? There's no better time than when you're under no parental supervision to experiment in bed and learn new things to take with you to future partners. Decorate your dream dorm room in this quiz, and we'll guess how many people you've slept with!
