College posters are an absolute necessity for any dorm room. While not quite required by University bylaws, posters solve the crucial problem of drab (or non-existent) dorm decor. If you missed the huge poster sales in the first few days of school (or you just want to upgrade), don't despair--you can find everything you're looking for online.

The Most Popular College Posters

Granted, it's been a few years since I was walking the old University halls. But I'm willing to bet that many of the same college posters that graced the walls of our dorms and apartments are still in circulation today. Some college posters get old, but they never go out of style.

The number one college poster of my day and today as well (I'm confident enough to bet on this) has to be the poster of Jim Belushi in Animal House, wearing his famous blue "COLLEGE" sweatshirt. If you don't know anyone who has this poster on their walls, then you're hopelessly out of fashion--or more likely, I am. In either case, no poster could better represent the true spirit of college-age belligerence.

If you're more a subtle type than Bluto in Animal House, there are of course a few other options for you. Movie posters are always a good choice. In my day, the Pulp Fiction poster was very popular, and I'd bet that Kill Bill is pretty popular today. So what's my favorite college poster of all time? It was a poster of an Indian movie star named Shri Devi. If you manage to find it, send me a copy.
