On Roommates

School is three weeks away, and the countdown begins to the start of Move In and the academic year.  Whether your student is entering his/her first year or is an upperclassman, it’s likely there will be a roommate in his/her future.  And even for upperclassmen who have chosen their own roommate, it’s still important to set the right tone and learn to live together in harmony.

Our Wake Forest News Service has a terrific article on how to get along with your college roommate.  Donna McGalliard, dean of Residence Life and Housing at Wake Forest, offers some sage advice:  “Be honest about what is important to you about your living space and arrangement, and willing to compromise where you can.”

Read the full article here – and share it with your students if you think it will be helpful.  Have a great weekend, Deac families!
