Going away to college means living away from home, probably getting your first roommate, and living in the dorms. That last one is probably the biggest change. You're no longer able to sleep in the comfort of your own bed but you do get to live steps away from some of your best friends. I asked people what they loved/hated about living in the dorms.
1. I love being close to food.
I honestly don't know what I'll do when I no longer have a meal plan.
2. I hate my roommate's boyfriend.
3. I love the proximity to campus.
Although, sometimes I can't even bring myself to walk the four minutes from my dorm to the dining hall.
4. It kind of just sucks.
Dorms are just a no go.
5. I love being around so many people.
You'll never be bored with so many people living around you. Every time you step out of your room there's probably at least three people hanging out outside.
6. I hate sharing a room.
Having to share such a small space with another person can take some getting used to.
7. I love meeting people.
Maybe the person living two doors down from you will end becoming one of your closest friends.
8. I hate how people were loud at night.
Sometimes you really just need to go to bed.
9. I hate having to be quiet at like 10.
Do people actually get to go to bed at 10 though? I need to meet these people.
10. I love being able to walk into my bff's room whenever.
You'll probably meet some of your best friends in college and the best part is, they'll live steps away from you!
You never know what you're going to get when living in the dorms.
