Pimp up your hostel room. Ever wondered why people flock to that dude’s room and not yours. Why every chic on campus is always sending that whatsapp message asking whether he’s around or if she can come hang around? It is all in the magic of things. You too can start now and upgrade your hostel room and probably surpass that dude’s room in popularity.
- A Flat Screen, and DVD Home Theatre
Girls love screen. They probably watch more screen than they watch their mouths. Start by dropping that awesome screen in your room. And follow it up with a DVD home theatre. The DVD home theatre will make it possible for you to host awesome parties but also for people to be able to play movies. If you are planning to buy anything next semester, let it be this.
2. Snacks and Drinks
Honestly, who wants to be in a room with nothing to munch on? No one. Not even you. So why the hell don’t you have some things for your visitors. Here’s a secret. You know that Urban Gweke, stock some of it in your room. Get some biscuits, some chocolates and some juices. Keep replenishing the stock. All of a sudden, your room will become the new capital city of your hostel. On another serious note, buy some wines, buy some smirnoffs and you will be the star of your hostel.
3. Comfy Bed
Considering that chairs are not trendy at campus. Invest in a comfy bed with extra bed covers. If you have some more money to blow this semester, you could also buy one of those flexible chairs that can be converted into a bed. But if you can’t, just have a comfy bed for people to rest on, sit on, and literally relax off their stress.
This is going to grab all people to your room during tests, exams and course works. Be the guy that has all the first hand information about the lectures. This will make your room the headquarters for your course. You won’t even struggle to get that hot chic’s number. She will bring herself to your room under the guise of getting handouts or coursework.
5. A Cool Roomie
For goodness sake, nothing chases people from a room like a very boring, very unwelcoming roomie. Next semester, start by auditing that loser roomie of yours. If he’s not up to the standards, do yourself a favour and fire him. Go hire another roomie that’s actually entertaining,very creative and is not broke. Have the guy who has links to those social circles,the roomie that comes up with the next great party idea.
