Class of 2017! If you're curious about the mysterious roommate preference form, don't panic! It will be available electronically in a few months. This is but one of many forms that will be listed on your new-student checklist, all of which you'll get information about in upcoming paper and electronic mailings.
So, watch your mailbox and your inbox and stay tuned, and until then, relax and enjoy the end of the world...or, uhm... year.
