Rooming with friends

<p>Is anyone else choosing not to room with friends? I am a freshman and next year I want to live in west, a single room, Keaton is my first choice. And i'm wondering if rooming with friends really is the most important thing in the world. I just don't feel like doing my room selection process with a bunch of my friends and I was really looking forward to living/meeting new people next year. But everyone I have talked to so far does not understand my philosophy on this at all. </p>

<p>Does rooming with friends really give you that much of an advantage for getting the house/room you want anyway? I just feel like the odds of getting a single on your own are better than getting the "ideal" suite with four other friends. (Don't suites get sold out super fast?)I'd rather get the room I want in a house that I like then I would like to room with my friends. Or do I have it all wrong? I have 7:00pm on the first day. Thanks!</p>

<p>Wait, so you’ve already gotten your housing registration information and you’re going to be a freshman next year?</p>

<p>I feel like living in a single refutes your premise for not living with a friend. To me that looks as though you respect your privacy MORE than meeting new people.</p>

<p>I choose not to room with a friend, but I am still doing a double room. I won’t do pot luck; instead I am finding someone to room with online. This way I can truly meet new people and experience what it’s like to have a roommate.</p>

<p>I feel exactly the same way. Although I might end up trying to leech off of someone with an earlier time slot since mine is absolutely terrible.</p>

<p>@observer4u: I am a current freshman next year I will be a sophomore. </p>

<p>Thanks for the input! I talked to more people about it and now I am pretty sure I am not the only one who feels this way. Although now I am nervous about the odds of getting into west campus at all. I heard everything goes within the first two hours, everything. Are people exaggerating or is this true?</p>

<p>wait angelfish are you a freshman?</p>

<p>Yes, I am a freshman right now and next year I will be a sophomore</p>
