    This best thing about living on campus is the convenience of having your classes and fellow students all around you.

    So what are some ways you can make more connects with the Tar Heels living in your dorm?

    These should be tips on how to be more active in your community, some ideas for getting your hall / suite together (i.e. movie nights or cooking a dinner together), really anything you can think of!

    I would love to see a blog topic talking about different ways to get active on campus. I feel like many students aren’t aware of the group fitness classes at the SRC or Rams. Another cool thing to talk about is the various trails that runners (or walkers) can go on to enjoy the beautiful campus and Carolina blue sky. A discussion of different intramural sports, clubs and events going on will encourage people to stay fit. For me, it is really important to stay healthy and fit. Exercising is a great stress relief for many people and promoting these healthy behaviors would be extremely valuable to this blog.

    Ok this is kind of an odd request but an interesting topic to write about would be pretending that the residence halls are people and giving them human characteristics to help people decide which is best for them. It would be like living with a “friend.”

    Blog topic idea:
    Ask a resident
    Previous/Current residents in residence halls can honestly describe the pros and cons about the hall they are in. Gives people a better understanding of how living in those halls are and makes choosing one easier in the future.

    It would be interesting to read a blog post about the pros and cons to staying on campus, one that actually compares real accounts from students who chose apartments vs students who stayed on campus. Either that or a blog post in which students rank different residence halls from their experiences in them.

    A cool blog topic would be some student stoplight feature posts of various freshman students living in different first-year housing experiences. This could even go on to include upperclassmen. I know it was hard for me to know which dorm to live in for my freshman year so this would help newbies to decide which dorm they’d like to live in next year! Each blog post could include pictures of a typical room setup and different aspects of the dorm that the student enjoys.

    I would love to see a blog about the cool and quirky teachers on campus! It would be really fun to take a class with an especially extra professor. For example, C.J. who teaches Busi 101 has the craziest memory and makes the class so much more fun with the tidbits that he throws in.

    Helpful tricks to effectively organize the amount of stuff we need in a small (dorm room) space! For example, TV stand with sectioned boxes rather than just shelves (perfect for fabric box drawers) , or a semi-lofted bed with plastic drawers under for clothes, or lofting a bed just high enough to put a mini fridge or shoe racks under.
