American college students are giving their dorm rooms insane makeovers -- check out the best ones we've seen

Every year, incoming college students create magic by transforming bland cement rooms into glamorous pads. This year is no different. 

Extreme dorm designs became a trend when Ole Miss freshmen Abby Bozeman and Lindy Goodson transformed their first-year dorm into a charming home-away-from-home. 

“We wanted our room to be cosy and comforting while we were away from home,” Goodson said of their dorm room. The two added their own personal touches with paintings and pictures and coordinated over the summer with fabric samples. The roommates also DIY-ed things they had from home to keep on budget. 

 

But the Ole Miss freshman aren’t the only ones taking on re-designing their dorms. Take a look at a few submissions we’ve had in our 2017 #BIDormDesigners contest so far:
