Students at Hulen-Clement and Wall-Gates dorms have started a program called Trading Spaces. It's based on the TV show of the same name... in which friends re-design and re-decorate one another's homes.
Students will be given special guidelines for how they can decorate, but for the most part, students will be allowed to use their creativity and eye for detail to decorate a friend's dorm room. "The show has been very popular with a lot of students and we watch it between classes, so it's been a good idea and it's just a different way to get the students involved in redecorating their rooms within university guidelines, says Tech Student Sarah Messler.
Students will be given a 125 dollar budget and six hours to decorate within university guidelines.
