Incoming students living in the Michigan State University dorms say they spend anywhere between $300 and $1,000 just to make their dorm rooms habitable.

MSU provides each student living in it's dorms a bed and a desk. Everything else a student may want must be purchased by the student. Common items include bedding, TV's, refrigerators, microwaves, and most expensive, computers.

Many incoming students say these hidden expenses of the college experience are more than they had originally expected, but just as many say it's worth it to make the dorm room feel like a home.
