Dorms: How to Choose?
I've been very adamant about getting a single dorm at BS since the application started. Now that the housing survey is here, I'm kind of torn between choosing a single (of course it's not guaranteed) or a double. As for single, I will have a quiet place to go to and I don't have to deal with any roommate issues. For double, it might be easier to have a go-to friend if we do get along well and that might work very well. Since I'm entering sophomore year, double might be better for me socially. I'm curious about people on CC's insights since I've heard both good things and bad things about living in doubles. Also, if I do choose double, what are some qualities to look for (and to write down in the survey) for a potential roommate? Any input appreciated!38 replies
