May is approaching, and many graduates are starting the process of picking a roommate.Many colleges will have students fill out surveys for finding roommates, and the questions can vary from asking what time you go to bed to describing your personality. In case you are having some trouble filling it out, here are some do’s and don’ts to help:

Do:

  • Be honest. Being yourself will attract others who have similar taste, and you will be more happy with your roommate.
  • Message the person to get know each other. Don’t be afraid to message them first.
  • Tell them what dorms you are looking at so both of you will be on the same page.

Don’t:

  • Lie about what you enjoying doing. Be yourself!
  • Freak out that you won’t find a roommate. Trust me, you will.
  • Be too scared to contact other students. You’re both in the same boat. It won’t hurt to contact them, and you never know who could be your future roommate.
  • Feel embarrassed about listing what you enjoy doing. There will definitely be someone that also shares the same interest.

While finding a roommate can be stressful, this is an opportunity to find and meet new friends! This is one of the first steps of your college foundation. Once you have a roommate, everything will come easier. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and enjoy what your campus has to offer!
