When it comes to college, first impressions are everything.

Write White Here
First thing’s first, you’ve got to have a whiteboard. It’s on every dorm checklist. You’ll use it to leave your roommate notes when you’re gone, and let you’re whole floor know about movie night at your place.
A small generic whiteboard will do, but this DIY Framed Whiteboard is worth the crafting time.
The Wonder of Washi
