It's easy to come into freshman year and idealize your roommate. Living with a new person teaches you many things about how you live and communicate. No matter what your roommate situation may be, view it as an opportunity to grow.
Deciding who will share your space for a year is a big deal. As a freshman, you can choose to be placed with a random roomie (we call that potluck) or with a friend/acquaintance. There are pros and cons to both, but whether you're living with a stranger or your bestie it's important to know how to be a good roommate. So let's talk about qualities that will make you the best roomie ever!
