This year I am a freshman and so many people told me that I should room with new people and not my best friend because I would end up hating her. It has been almost a whole school year and guess what? I still love her more than anything and we have not even fought! So, here are some reasons that you should in fact room with your best friend, if you are given the opportunity:
1. You know that no matter what happens you can always vent to each other about anything. Did you have a bad day? Do you hate your new professor? Did someone steal your seat in class that you have been sitting in for 8 weeks? Did you make a big mistake? Did you fail your exam? You already know that you have somebody that you can talk to about it and then one day end up looking back and laughing at it.

2. You both can do your "firsts" together. You have your person that you can go to your first basketball game, football game, tailgate, homecoming, frat parties, etc.
3. You get a little less homesick because they are just like a family member. Yeah, of course you are going to miss your family and friends from back home but having your best friend with you is like having a piece of home with you, no matter where you are.

4. You will always have someone to talk to, even at 3AM. It might be 3AM but your best friend will always roll over and talk to you, especially on the weekends.

It is like the ultimate sleepover because you are with your best friend every night and you guys can do crazy shenanigans together all the time.
Living with my best friend has been so much fun. I always have someone I can talk to and that person who makes me feel comfortable no matter what the situation is. She has helped me getting out of sticky situations and has made life so much more fun. We got to go to the tailgates together, football games, basketball games, the frat houses, and we have made so many more friends in the meantime. We are actually living together next year, too. So, basically you should not always listen to the people who try to talk you out of rooming with your best friend because I did it and have not once regretted it.
