I Use two of these boards in my college dorm. one board is mounted on the outside of my door, and the other above my desk. Both boards have performed spectacularly. My friends and I use the outside board for writing messages to friends, drawing small doodles, and all sorts of other goofy things. It is a great board to fool around with. Also, the identical board that is mounted above my desk is a great way to stay organized. I write myself small reminders about club meetings, test dates, and helpful study tips that help keep me on top of my schoolwork. I would definitely recommend this board for any type of use.
