Hi! I doubt anyone will see this but I thought I’d give it a shot.
As I graduate this year and enter college in the fall, there’s a few things on my mind.
One of which, is the living conditions at the schools I’ve applied to.
I’m a gay guy, and while a lot of colleges DO offer special housing that’s gender-blind, I really don’t want to alter the “typical” college experience and it wouldn’t kill me to make a few guy friends outside of my existing friend group.
However, it’s so hard to find articles and testimonies of gay students, or people who have roomed with gay students.
Overall, my question is- does anyone know if it’s going to be excruciatingly hard to find a roommate because I’m gay? I really don’t want to live the first year of college having to worry about being myself because I am very open about it.
In case anyone knows specifics, here are the schools I’ve applied to:
-UC Santa Barbara
-University of San Francisco [Accepted]
-San Francisco State [Accepted]
-Seattle University [Accepted]
-University of Washington (Seattle)
-Arizona State (Tempe) [Accepted]
-University of Miami [Accepted]
-University of Maryland College Park [Acc.]
-Georgetown University [Deferred]
-Drexel University [Accepted]
-University of Pennsylvania
