Every roommate situation in college is going to be different.
All you can do is hope and pray that they'll just leave you alone for the most part. A lot of the time, you can get a hint about what kind of roommate they'll be just knowing their first name.
Her dad pays her rent. She can't cook. Litters the kitchen with take out boxes from the local vegan joint.
Totally wants you to go to SoulCycle with her at 6 a.m. on a Saturday. Room is littered with leggings and sneakers.
Comes home at 3 a.m. after a night of heavy drinking. Loudly makes some sort of frozen meal. Sleeps through her noon alarm.
Probably has dark hair and an acoustic guitar. Keeps pretty much to herself. Does homework in the living room at obscure hours.
Was on the dance team in high school and has not stopped telling you about how great it was. Does work out videos on the TV in the living room.
Brings her boyfriend over every night of the week. Brings different boys home on the weekends.
Actively avoids cleaning the bathroom. Leaves her dishes in the sink. You haven't seen her shower in four days.
Normal. Quiet. Wants to be a high school English teacher.
Wild. Emotionally distraught always. Is always hosting the pre-game. Never comes home with all of the clothes she left wearing.
"Definitely should have got into Harvard, but I ended up here instead." Too into trying to get a 4.0 to pay attention to you.
Studies music performance. Screams expletives at her keyboard. Cannot play the trumpet, but still tries really hard.
So tall she almost hits her head on the doorways. Plays basketball. Raps to old Kanye in the shower.
Should not be allowed to go out. Goes out every weekend anyway. Throws up in your bathtub and doesn't always address it in the morning.
Stressing about her internship. Is currently failing all of her classes. Will somehow still get a 3.5 GPA this semester.
You never see her, only the hairballs she leaves all around your place.
Only has guy friends because "it's easier." Guy friends who leave empty beer cans out after every sporting event on TV.
Has a 4.0 as a biology major. Is going to med school. Sterilizes her room, the bathroom and the kitchen sink every four hours.
Always has a paper about feminism to write. Rosie the Riveter poster in her room.
Is probably dating her boss. Has straight Ds in all her classes.
Is somehow always home when you're home. You know nothing about her other than where she's from.
Trying to become the next big YouTuber. Has lighting equipment all over the place. You constantly hear the phrase, "Hey guys, welcome to my channel!" She squealed because yesterday she hit 25 subscribers.
Is probably plotting your murder. Lurks around like a cat.
