Housing/Roomate Question

<p>For first year students, are roommates random? or is there a survey?</p>

<p>i think they will be sending out housing info in the coming week. i'm sure there is a survey and roommates might be random. either way, i am soo excited!! :)</p>

<p>I don't know if you have filled out the survey yet, but I'll answer anyway. There is a survey with a few questions and a box where you can write anything about yourself. WRITE WRITE WRITE. Everyone I know who really liked their roommate wrote a lot about themselves in that box. Most people are very satisfied with their roommates, choose to room again, or stay friends/acquaintances with them. It is random. Not everyone is that lucky, but I have not heard of any real horror stories about bad roommates. I do know of three people who have gotten room requests because the two or more roommates looked great on paper, but either their confrontation style or lifestyle didn't mix (a lot of people change their living habits that first month of school, especially with sleeping hours). Give your roommate a chance. It may not work out perfectly, but as long as you are all polite you can learn a lot from each other. </p>

<p>Good luck! Hope you love the hill!</p>
