BIG RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) Maranda got a chance to tour one of the residence halls at Ferris State University. For many it’s the first time they’ve lived independently, so it’s a good idea to get as involved as you can. For the first two weeks of school your resident advisor and hall director are there to help and support. There’s classes on how to clean your bathroom and do laundry. Many people have never lived with anyone but their family, so it’s important to meet your roommate before you get to college.
Our intern Kelly got a chance to go shopping at Meijer and find her top 5 things she recommends for a dorm room.
#1 – a fan, since most dorms and residence halls don’t have air conditioning
#2 – wall stick-on air freshers
#3 — Wall hooks
#4 – power strips
#5 — white board calendars
