Roommates can be the key to a good year and also your first chance at making friends on campus. Use these tips to get closer with yours.

8 Ways To Bond With Your College Roommates That Will Make You Forever Friends

Living with random strangers can be tough and scary when it comes down to it. You all of a sudden have to live with someone you've never met and are expected to get along.

Even if you know your roommates, it can be a tough time at the start of the year. You will all be under new pressures so here are some ways that you all can bond and learn more about each other.

Have a Painting Party

Throw on a Bob Ross tutorial or just make up your own ideas. When you're done, throw them up on the wall so you all can display your work.

Make a Craft

Make friendship bracelets or anything that sounds fun but crafting is always a good time.

Have a Movie Night

Whether it is a bunch of rom-coms, sappy movies, or a series of movies (I recommend "Twilight"), it will be fun to know what they like to watch and even making fun of the plots. Crying together is also a good bonding moment.

Go on an Adventure

As freshman,my roommates and I went to go to a sunflower patch and got lost on the way there. We had a photo shoot and it is one of my finest memories from freshman year. We also took adventures to go get food and that was always a fun time wondering around at night going to go get cookies.

Grab Coffee

Coffee dates are always a good way to get to know each other because you actually get a chance to talk and get to know each other on a more personal level.

Decorate Together

Set aside some time to decorate your new room together. It will be a fun time to learn about each others style.

Have a Pizza Party

Buy a few pizzas and breadsticks and let the magic happen. Pizza always brings people together.

Go Shopping Together

I don't just mean to the mall. Going to the store together will save gas and will also give you all some quality time together. It sounds funny but it works.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
