About This Quiz

Unless you live nearby or you have a relative that you can stay with, it is almost always mandatory for students, specifically new and incoming college students, to spend at least one term living on campus. For that short period of time, students will be sleeping, eating and studying their butts off in a very small space - which they might have to share with someone.

Much like designing one's own room at home, dorm rooms require bedding, window treatments, carpets or rugs, as well as appliances. Many students take the opportunity to personalize their room to make it feel as much like "home" as possible, sticking up posters and photos of the things they love most. 

How cool would it be if your dorm room design could tell you what you should specialize in? Well, there is such a quiz, and it is right here. Tell us every single detail about what you want your room to look like, from the appliances that you want to the posters that you will be hanging up on your walls, and we will tell you what your major should be. Will it be one of the arts, or maybe a science, or will it be something more hands-on, or something in the business world? Take this quiz to find out!
