Mission Statement

The Dorm Room Makeover was created to help a deserving first-generation minority female student adapt to their new life living on campus at a North Carolina state college or university. We want to assist, design, and add personal style & flare to their dormitory spaces.

The scholarship provides funding to alleviate the burden of expenses that come with furnishing campus and a professional designer to create a comfortable living space to help empower the student achieve her academic goals.

Mood

Thank you so much to The Vogue Room Foundation for decorating my dorm room. Coming to my room everyday give me the motivation to smash my goals. I’m currently on the honor roll and plan to continue to keep it that way
