We just finished our freshman year at the University of Kentucky and we wanted to share what our dorm looked like so you guys could get some room inspiration! We hope this post helps new college freshman on what to buy 🙂
Ok so UK just recently got new dorms and they are SO nice. We lived in Woodland Glen II – also known as “The Athlete Dorm.” Our dorm is less than a 5-minute walk to the library, the dining hall, the Johnson Center, and many other athletic facilities! Our dorm was complete with 2 separate, furnished bedrooms and a full bath with a kitchen/living area. There is a 24/7 staffed front desk, study rooms on each floor, full Tempur-Pedic mattress’, and granite countertops (seriously, it was like living in a hotel). We have a passion for decorating and our mom is basically our own interior designer! We went all out with cute, girly decor to make our dorm a unique and fun place to live! Our favorite places to shop were Hobby Lobby, Home Goods, and Target! Decorating is something we really enjoy, so we loved every minute of shopping for the cutest dorm decor.
We were lucky to have each other as roomies (living with your best friend is seriously the best). The most common questions we got asked were, “Do you guys really like living together?” and “Do you guys ever get sick of seeing each other 24/7?” Honestly, living with your sister is not as bad as people may think. In fact, rooming together is so much fun. You get to share clothes and shoes (double of everything= amazing), you can always be yourself/say what you want, you will always get an honest opinion when it comes to everything, and you get to live with someone who always has your back. We have such similar taste so what one twin loves, the other one loves too (because of that reason, our rooms looked pretty identical but we tried to make them slightly different lol). Can you tell we both like blush?
The dorm life was so fun and something we will treasure forever! Some of our best memories from our freshman year were made in the dorms with our friends! We absolutely LOVED every minute of living on campus this year in the heart of the Big Blue Nation.
