If you could interview your future roommate for college, what would you ask them?

    ^ok

    ^ would you rather have a roommate who smokes or a roommate who is clean?

    Well here's some questions I have already...

    What's your major? Why did you choose UC Merced? What do you want to be once you are finished with college? Are you serious about school but do you still like to have fun? How serious are you about school? What are you expecting your GPA to be each semester? Do you like to study? Are you clean? What city and state do you live in? What do you like to do for fun? Do you like/play/watch sports? What's your favorite subject in school? Are you in a relationship? If so would have them sleep over in our dorm? Would you have anyone sleep in our dorm? Would you have a problem if I wanted someone to spend the night? What do you consider your bad habits? What irritates you? What's your hobbies? Are you the only child? Are you a clean freak? What time do you sleep? What are you study habits? What are your social habits? Do you snore when you sleep? Do you drink alcohol? What would you hate for your roommate to do in the dorm? Would you rather live in a double or triple dorm and which Terraces would you prefer?

    UCM students you may use these questions if you'd like to when your able to ask your roommate questions.

    This is all I have can you think of any more?

    I'd like to have a roommate who doesn't smoke and who is clean. But a non smoking roommate would be top priority. I would also want someone who is pretty study minded and is not into parties.
  • Leviathan08Leviathan08 Registered User Posts: 180 Junior Member
    I agree with all you said. If your roommate is into parties it's more likely you'll be pulled into the same scene.

    MORE QUESTIONS PLEASE. 1 QUESTION would be great!

    You will have the opportunity to ask all of your questions directly from your possible future roommate at orientation. My D met her roommate and bonded that afternoon. You must mutually request each other to be assigned together. If not,you are assigned according to closeness in preferences filled out during orintation.

    "I agree with all you said. If your roommate is into parties it's more likely you'll be pulled into the same scene."

    haha, you have no idea how true that is.
