Posters in College Dorms

<p>Does everybody put a bunch of posters up in their dorms? Honestly, it seems kind of "high school" to me. But I'll be a frosh so I really don't know.</p>

<p>Is it considered lame or does everyone do it?</p>

<p>I can admit that I have this question too. I bought two posters for my future dorm room but they are a smaller size than normal ones. One is actually considered a lithograph anyway, haha.</p>

<p>most people don't wallpaper their walls with posters but it is very common to have them in the room or on the door. If you have some you like use them.</p>

<p>No, it is not socially acceptable to put posters up in your personal area.</p>

<p>Heh, nearly all freshmen and sophomores at my school have at least one poster up on their wall.</p>

<p>I had 2, plus 2 flags, and then a bunch of b&w photos (8x10's and larger).</p>

<p>ohh +1 for a flag. I had one in my dorm room as well. haha, I thought it was cool.</p>

<p>^It became fairly legit when I started learning said countries language. Before then it was more a family heritage thing.</p>

<p>The other flag was more a city symbol.</p>

<p>Some people put up posters, some don't.</p>

<p>My first year I had none, second and third year I put up 2, and in my last year I had over 9000 posters covering every wall.</p>

<p>I seriously hadn't thought of this, I mean...it's posters. I have some I like and am putting up and if it's lame than whatever but I think you might be thinking a bit too much about what people think of you if you worry someone judges you about posters.</p>

<p>Most people put a few to a bunch up to personalize the room a bit. At my school there was some company that set up shop on campus and sold them for like $10 each. I don't think it's tacky or anything, and they make decent enough conversation starters I guess. Make sure you know where you're allowed to hang them though; some dorms don't let you put them over a certain height for fire safety reasons.</p>

<p>Oh, and everyone is going to have the pink floyd poster. Yeah, and that pink floyd poster too.</p>

<p>A lot of people have posters. Just don't get something tacky or stereotypical "college"</p>

<p>My roommate and i had 5 posters in our room as well as some other cool decoations like plastic butterflies, mirror spots, a spiky mirror decoration, colored wall spots, sparkly letters, picture boards, sorority stuff, etc. and our room looked awesome. It's your space though, ultimately you have to be the one who likes it.</p>

<p>Everyone in the history of college has had the same 5-6 cliche dorm posters. Usually:</p>

<ol>
<li>Belushi chugging that bottle of Jack </li>
<li>Something by Van Gogh (usu. starry night)</li>
<li>Scarface</li>
<li>Dark Knight</li>
<li>Some sort of neonish Andy Warhol thing</li>
<li>Bob Marley?</li>
</ol>

<p>Don't forget the beatles albums...</p>

<p>Of course they're cheesy and stereotypical, but they're great fun and set the right mood.</p>

<p>In my brief days of off-campus housing (sharing a one room apartment) the centerpiece was an oversized "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" poster at which I fondly remember giggling in various states of insobriety.</p>

<p>Try to get something that your roommate(s) approve of and it'll be a nice addition and good conversation starter when visitors drop by.</p>

<p>I intend to place a large Kandinsky print on my wall.</p>

<p>I got two posters I'm definitely putting on: </p>

<p>1.Camp Nou, Barcelona
2.The Shawshank Redemption poster</p>

<p>And who cares if it's cliche??? Do what you feel like.</p>

<p>can't believe no one mentioned pictures of women! :o</p>

<p>Think I might put up a U.S. map.</p>

<p>My roommate and I had a ton of posters. Lots of different kinds, from sports teams to movies and TV shows.</p>

<p>It really seemed to add to the room. Made it a lot less boring.</p>
