The Top 20 Dorm Room Posters Of All Time

#20 Abbey Road

It's happened: We've blown another summer. America's future leaders are piling back to their schools, and we're honoring them with how-to's, survival guides and personal stories of failure from Observer staff. That's right, It's College Week.

In the tiny confines of a dorm room, real estate is at a premium. Giving up a two foot by three foot chunk of wall space requires commitment -- you want the picture you hang to identify you, and allow everyone the opportunity to see how deep your still waters truly run. Mostly, it just screams "Freshman art." The dorm poster is a precursor to your first apartment where you'll use bean bags as dining room chairs and milk crates as patio furniture. Until that day arrives, embrace your decor and stack it against these 20 classics.
