Single VS Double Room—Worth the extra $300/semester?
Hi, I'm an incoming freshman. My mom thinks I should live in a double room but I really want to live in a single. I'm introverted so I like having my own room to unwind and chill and "recharge." I like my privacy. I also like being able to set my own alarms, live on my own schedule, just be really independent. I've gone to summer camps before where I've stayed in dorms and I've usually not enjoyed the experience. My best friends of those camps were always people who weren't my roommates. So, do you think requesting for a single room is worth paying the extra $300 a semester?15 replies
