1. Begin A Conversation
In this age of digital living it is far too easy to search your roommate on your social media platform of choice and begin to make judgments, both positive and negative (its human, it happens). We ask that you reach out to your roommate and actually begin to get to know them. There was something in your housing application that made the Professional Staff feel like you were compatible, explore that match.
2. Tame your Expectations
First Year roommates are romanticized in movies, in other people's experiences, and through social outlets. While some of you may become great friends with your first year roommate, some of you will be with someone who is highly compatible for your living situation but maybe you aren't the best of friends, THIS IS OKAY. Sometimes the best roommate is someone who you enjoy living with, get along with, but maybe aren't best friends with, we still consider this a success.
