Topics to Discuss With Your New Roommate
Within any relationship you’re going to want to talk with your roommate about the things that are important to you. Those things could be about sleep habits they could be about gas, they could be about what we’re going to keep in the room and what we’re not going to keep in the room,
So it’s really important you have those discussions early on so that your new roommate will understand were your coming from and not be defensive should something happen in the room after you’ll start leaving together. Specifically you might want to talk about what you’re going to be bringing in the campus and putting in the room and what he or she might be bringing to put in the room as well so that you can minimize the duplication that you don’t need.
