So here we are....first child/daughter off to Elon this fall. As the time approaches to give preference to housing and roommate selection, please give any thoughts or ideas on how to guide a child on this matter. Certainly she has used the facebook page and other social media to make some informal contact. How would parents who have experienced this right of passage guide another child on this process? To some extent, I am sure this appears to be a bigger deal than it actually is ~ but not right at this moment so says the daughter. In some respects, I almost think that rolling the dice by filling out the housing questionnaire diffuses the pressure of picking or matching yourself to the ideal roommate. Any help is sincerely appreciated.
