Welcome Back! Welcome Back! As everyone heads back to school, the only one that might be more excited than you are, is everyone at Dormify! This is because we already have so much to share with you. It’s going to be a good year. Check out all the new arrivals, just in time for the start of the school year. Whether you’re getting inspired by our new manifesto poster, sprucing up your dorm with one of our new bedding collections, or sharing the dorm-room love and passing on Dormify to all of the guys in your life (who you know will love our new sweatshirt-bedding), you are sure to find something you’ll love. 

We know that we aren’t the only ones excited about all that the year has in store. The ladies at Birchbox, remembering what a thrill preparing to go back to school always was, have partnered with Dormify and have not only created a back-to-school essentials list, but have devoted their August Birchbox to a Beauty School Theme. There’s nothing better than starting off the year with a stylish dorm room and a fresh beauty start. Check out Stephanie’s blog-post about the co-founder of Birchbox, and then get in on all the fun!


You may have just gotten back to campus, but your to-do list is already soooo long! Look at everything you need to get done: checkout Dormify’s limited time sale bedding, catch up on your school’s fabulous reviews on College Prowler, and vote for Dormify’s boards on SXSW2013’s panel picker (here and here–thanks for all your support!). Somewhere between balancing your schoolwork and your never-ending To-Do List, don’t forget to make the most of your experience. Our partner All Women Stalk reminds us that many of the most important lessons are not taught in the classroom!


It’s never too early for some cherished procrastination, either. My favorite form: Pinterest. And now the time you enjoy wasting and pinning will not be wasted, because Dormify’s Pinterest Contest is coming to a close on August 26. So keep pinning and promoting your boards! While you are there, check out our partner Delivering Happiness’ board for some inspiration and smiles.


And whether you are an upperclassmen or a new freshman, it’s never too early to start thinking about life after graduation (eeek) or at least always taking advantage of your opportunities. Our partner The Next Great Generation shares what they think are the 5 Best Jobs, but there are so many more out there! Check out style advisor Jennifer Cole’s blog post about her internship with Dormify and all the great new experiences she had this summer! With your dormified room, your fresh new beauty start, and tips like these, it may just be the start of another school year, but you are already ready to take on the world!
