What's been your experience with roommates?
I'm happy to say that my freshman year roommate became my best friend and we are roommates again this year. Some of my favorite memories include when we started our own radio talk-show Fall term of my freshman year (that we continue to do now) and the nights we spent falling asleep laughing at the ridiculous happenings of the day.
I had a great experience after getting matched up with roommates my freshman year. I asked to be placed in a triple with really different people, and ended up sharing the room with a liberal and a conservative guy. I think it was a great experience because we all learned a lot from each other, and benefited from our differences.
