Roommate Guide: College Roommates
College Roommates
If you and a friend decide to move in together for college, be prepared for things to change. College is about intellectual and personal growth, so roommates should understand that even if they have a previous friendship, it's OK to make new friends and spend time with others. Like any other roommate situation, you should set ground rules when rooming with a friend in the same manner you would if you were roommates with a stranger. Making assumptions can ruin a friendship! Plan ahead for dating situations, study time and over night guests. Many college students often experience episodes of stress from studying and school work, social pressures, working, and homesickness, so try to keep this in mind during agitated situations.
