1. Great looking room! Of course, it doesn’t compare to his room at home, but that’s to be expected:). Praying that he has a good, safe year!

    1. Thanks Jeanine, I wish we could have painted and hang more things. That’s always the biggest issue.

    I hope that you bombard the city and the university with pictures of the trash, dead rat, and concerns of anything you see. If we don’t speak up, nothing will change. Good luck to your son as he pursues his college degree and I pray for his safety.

    1. I did bombard them last year but it wasn’t good for my mental health anymore. I had to step back a bit. And thanks so much.

  3. Room is looking good. Love the flags and the Coors vintage tee shirt:) Sending good vibes for a great year:)

  4. Love his decor! It looks like a comfy place to live…I might not want to venture out. I hope he has a good, safe year. Peace to you on the journey

    1. Yeah, the venturing out part is tricky. Thanks, Wendy!

  5. Hope he has a safe and wonderful year! I love his rooms! Kim

  6. Hi Julia – Your son’s apartment looks perfect. He is lucky to have a mom that can make it just right for him and his apartment mates. :-). My sisters keep telling me how bad Phila is getting that they don’t even want to go into the city anymore. It is so sad as there are so many nice things about the city – like Temple and Penn. I hope the city gets its act together before it is too late.

    1. Hi Diane, I wanted to do so much more in the apartment but I know most of it will get ruined. It’s boys living together LOL. The striped rug from last year had to go in the trash 😉
      I’ve always loved Philadelphia and now I’m scared. There is so much beautiful history and so many things to see. It’s where I became a citizen! I really hope they can turn it around again. It makes me sad to think of all the young kids who grow up with so much violence and think it’s normal. Maybe they should start with that generation and help them grow up differently. Hope you are well, we need to catch up sometime soon.

    Prayers for his safety even now Julia.

  8. Thanks for sharing the pictures. Love the decor. My son is a high school senior considering Temple University so loved seeing the dorm room. Temple University is a great university but the surrounding area is scary and I am a Delawarean born and raised in Philly. I pray your son has a safe, successful year. Please tell him to always be aware.

    1. Thanks Anissia! I’m always worried about him being there, especially when he walks home from work at night. But he loves Temple and doesn’t want to go anywhere else. Good luck to your son.
