Would like a few more opinions, please. My son has a friend from high school who will also be starting as a freshman at his college. He is debating between requesting a single or a double, leaning towards a double, and thinks that if he requests a double he wants to be with his friend. Everyone who I've asked says that this is a really bad idea - they need to branch out, they'll have 4 friends if they each have a roommate, etc. I totally agree. What do you think?
The other family wants them to be roommates and I'm also afraid that if my son requests a double, not with this kid, they may be offended.
I also kind of think a single could be good - then you can sleep and study when you want, but I can also see why he'd want a roommate.
