Campus Living Q&A:

What brought you to Brockport?

White: "Brockport was never actually a consideration until my senior year of high school when I was visiting schools. As soon as I arrived on campus, I felt so at home and knew I belonged here for the next four years."

Living on campus during a pandemic must have its challenges. What have you enjoyed so far, and what has been difficult?

"I’ve definitely enjoyed making friends and learning new things. However, it has been difficult not being able to go into other residence halls to see friends or have my friends and family from home come visit. As long as we’re staying safe, I don’t mind!"

What inspires you?

"I was heavily inspired by Pinterest and TikTok for the design of my room. I’ve been saving ideas since I committed to Brockport."

What design aesthetic were you going for in your room?

"I’m very indecisive, so it was especially hard for me to pick an aesthetic for my room. I decided to combine my favorites. I love boho, so I threw in some vines and a chunky knit blanket but kept it modern and edgier by adding posters and LED lights."

Where did you do most of your décor shopping?

"Amazon! It’s so easy to find specific items you’re looking for, it’s inexpensive, and shipping is very fast if you’re a last-minute shopper like me."

Down to the Details:

Favorite three items:

  • Her “A” sign, which adds just the right amount of personalization
  • Chunky knit throw blanket (so comfy)
  • LED lights for a chill vibe during homework sessions or socially distanced hangouts

Residence hall musts:

  • Get crafty!
  • Search on Amazon for unique items (like White's mini vinyl coasters that she used as wall décor).
  • For DIY wall posters, find images online to send to your local CVS or Walmart to print, a trick for custom sizing and money saving.

Can’t live without:

  • A down comforter (White picked up hers at Target, and although a bit pricey, she says it's worth it!)
