Hey-I didn't really get this question answered in another thread i posted with some other questions, so I think I'll ask it again:
I'm signed up for the roommate finder on UNC Housing's website and a few people have contacted me, but I guess I haven't found a "great" roommate yet. I'd have no problem living with any of them, but you probably get my drift. I also find the search function incredibly annoying to use on that site, so my contacts have been limited as well.
Anyway, I was wondering how random roommates work at UNC. On the housing app, it doesn't really give you much of a chance to say your roommate preferences except smoking vs. nonsmoking. Do they instead use info from their roommate finder if you don't request a roommate? Or is it just that so few students do a random roommate that they don't ask. Guess I had always just kind of planned on a random one, so I'm not sure what to do. No matter what you're going to end up with another freshman, right?
Thanks for your help and any other insight or experiences you might have had with random roommates at UNC.
