A Note on Roommate Success

For some students, sharing a room is a big adjustment. Experience has taught us that successful roommates are the ones who COMMUNICATE. And by communicate, we mean talk. Face to face. Texts, sticky notes, e-mails, Facebook comments, Tweets, etc. don't count. ;-)  Before you change assignments because you and your roommate don't seem compatible, read Roommate Relationships and talk to your CA.
