    I think you should make a cheat sheet for basketball season with important information about all the players (for first years who are ~uncultured~) and how to trash talk when dookies comment on your post-win #gdtbath insta pics.

    I’d like to see a blog post about furniture (beds, desks, dressers, etc.) arrangements in the dorm rooms which optimize either productivity, creativity, restfulness, or social atmosphere based on the type of space you and your roommate(s) would like to have. The post could include diagrams of the rooms with furniture in various locations as well as decor suggestions for each style!

    I’d love to see a post on some of the hidden gems in Lenoir and Rams! Need to spice up the dining hall by the end of the first semester.

    Can you post about the pros and cons of living on campus vs off campus, especially for first-years? There are some discussion boards about it but not any official posts. The decision-making process was confusing and it would be helpful to see the pros and cons of each!

    I think that a cool topic for the holiday season would be recommending various Christmas gifts that you can find in the UNC Student Stores for friends and family or a secret santa.

    I think an interesting blog topic would be “The Importance of Cultivating Friendships with Those in your Residence Halls”. This is something that has caused me to love living in Rams Village and has helped create a positive and fun community between the residents.
