Top 5 Pinterest Boards Every College Student Should Have

1. Decorating Dorm

This is going to be your home away from home, so you want it to be your ideal cozy haven. Search pins from all the themes that intrigue you (i.e. Minimalist, Bohemian, Eccentric). After seeing a few themes on Pinterest, I can guarantee one will speak to you!

2. Dorm Recipes

We all tell ourselves college will be the time that I start eating healthier because I am in control of my meals. If you are already a college student, you may realize eating healthy sometimes gets put on the back burner when you have two exams (on the SAME day), a 20-page lab proposal to do, and still need to balance your internship and job hours. So when you take a break to scroll through Pinterest, and see if you stumble upon the many dorm-friendly recipes that are healthy, cost-friendly, and quick. 

*Spoiler alert: Overnight oats will be your go-to breakfast!

As a college student (and new Northerner), I began to gravitate toward minimalist street style. This involves boyfriend jeans, oversized sweaters, and clothing that’d typically solid (i.e. free of lots of colors and patterns)—an Pinterest was a huge help in that exploration! 

4. Notes

If you are anything like me, you are someone who proudly considered notetaking to be their therapy. I find organizing and color-coding notes to be very satisfying and appealing. Sometimes, my brain just needs help thinking of a color scheme and style that notes can be taken in. I search “aesthetic notes,” and this usually gets me out of the rut. 

5. Healthy Mind

Mental health is very important, especially during college when stress is always at an all-time high. Tests are always thrown left and right, internships are expected to be found, and GPA is expected to be high. Pinterest allows you to look up blogs, tips,  fun self-care activities, and inspirational quotes on managing stress.
