You Can Pick Your Rommates and You Can Pick Your Nose But You Can’t Pick Your Roommate’s Nose…

Sharing living quarters with someone can be difficult. This’s why it is important to consider the who’s and where’s when you decide where to live for the school year. Depending on what year you are in college can also play an important role in deciding where to live and how many roommates you can really tolerate. Here are our suggestions on how to decide where to live!
-Freshmen: Live near or on campus. Try out the dorms for a year. It’s a great way to meet people! Even if you know a lot of people on campus already, it’s always a good idea to get out of your comfort zone and meet NEW people! After all, isn’t that part of why you came to college in the first place?
-Sophomores: Now that you have a better understanding of the campus and how things work, try living with people you know. Live in the dorms again or try moving into your sorority/ fraternity house. The more people you live with the more you will understand who is best suited to live with you in the years to come!
– Juniors: By this point you have exposed yourself to a variety of different living situations. Try finding a house or an apartment with just a couple of people and get your own room; it’s time! With school becoming more demanding, it is important to have your own space so you are able to use the textbook rentals that you rented from textbookstop.com to ace your classes! Remember, best friend doesn’t always equal best roommate!
– Seniors: You know what you want. At this point you have usually figured out what type of people you want to live with, if any. Find someplace to live that suits your individual style. It’s senior year, time to crack down and have fun!
Where has been your favorite place to live?
