Questions of introduction are generally those that are asked first and help you to figure out who your roommate is. If everything goes well (which it will- don’t stress!), you’ll be living with this person for a year in a generally small room.
Beginning a successful roommate relationship is all about learning to honor and adapt to your roommate’s preferences. I’m not saying to send a giant email or Facebook message full of questions, as everyone goes through a different process of getting to know their new roommate and becoming comfortable living with him or her.

It may seem scary to some students and adults that we choose to go into a completely new situation with a person we’ve never met, practically sharing our lives with them. Others, such as student Sarah Mastrocola, have used both Facebook groups and other sites to find the perfect roommate.
Roomsurf, a website that hosts a questionnaire you fill out (it includes pastimes and other characteristics) that match you up with the “perfect” roommate.
Congratulations to Lilia Wood, New Jersey’s High School Journalist of the Year (2016)!
Your very first day of college is filled with excitement — then you meet your new weirdo roommate.
Shipping off to school to live in a tiny cinderblock box with strangers is something everyone should experience, but when your creepy new roommate reveals they're a messy kleptomaniac with a passion for eating lip balm, it may be time to start thinking about off-campus residencies next semester. Whether you attend a school in your home state or one out of state, paying for college can be expensive.
July 10, 2012 by Ruby Grace 1 Comment In a perfect world, a very wise psychologist will be sitting in the main office of the college dorms sorting potential boarders according to hometown, family background, personality traits and cultural beliefs. So, what do you do when you find out that you’re not getting a solo room, and that you have nothing in common at all with your roommate?
Since the obvious solution (running) is not an option, you have to deal with the situation the best way you can.
The generic advice given to marketers and entrepreneurs alike is this: develop a thicker layer of skin. The more time you spend in your dorm room, the more obvious it is that your differences with your new roommate are too great.
For example, if you think your roommate can do better in the hygiene department, be a stickler for proper hygiene yourself. If you went potluck, or didn’t request a roommate, the name you see listed will probably be completely new to you.
They help to define what you and your roommate have in common, and let you know the type of person you will be living with. To both maximize space and minimize stress, you’ll want to do as much pre-planning as possible. Of course, not all preferences will automatically align with your own, which makes knowing what to expect beforehand that much more important so that you can plan ahead. Yet, asking some of these questions periodically can help to minimize the stress of the first day you meet (moving in is already stressful enough itself without adding in the bad feeling of hauling up a TV only to find that there is already one in your room!), and set yourself up for a year of both cooperation and a good relationship.

He worked as a farmera€™s son, of coui??rse, and he also cut bushes and brush on the railroad right-of-way near the Walton home at Dover. Olna and her family were at a birthday party for Rubya€™s Grandfather Winder Winfield Hillman, Sr.


Jess Hillman, Rubya€™s uncle, near Dixon, Mississippi (the place is on the road near Leona€™s place). He worked on bridge gangs and section gangs, was a foreman at one time, and for a number of years worked as a road carpenter. Her only employment, besides being a farmera€™s wife and homemaker, was work at Thaggardsa€™ Grocery at Dixon and at the Dixon School cafeteria for a while. She moved to a retirement home in Pascagoula in December 2002 and died there in December 2003. When Gerald told her her experience in a nursing home might be a good one because she would meet new people there, she replied, a€?Yes, but I may not like thema€?!

College dorm rooms and apartments are small and compacted as it is, and the less you have, the better. Apart from the initial sticker price you pay when you first buy it, you most also buy ink and paper for the printer on a regular basis.
In the real world, however, room assignments are random at best, and you will have to live with the roommate assigned to you for the duration of your stay, or at least, your freshman year. This means being more resistant to bad habits of others, and not letting their attitudes get to you. As you become more skilled at dealing with the quirks of your roommate, you will understand how to cope better, and perhaps be one step closer to a truce of sorts. So, how do you meet your roommate and organize a whole year of living without ever seeing him or her in person? Living with a stranger in a dorm setting is a big and exciting step in the college experience, so make sure to start it off right! However, you can relax knowing that while everything seems like a huge deal, in the long run, most things aren’t.
They married at the Methodist parsonage in Union on October 26, 1930, on their sixth anniversary of the day when they met. Their first house was a small house at Dover, very near, across the railroad from, Jay's parents' home.A  Jay had bargained for the place and hired a man to help him farm it. They farmed there for i??one year and then moved to a tenant home owned by Aunt Lucia and Uncle Maynard Kennedy.
While living there, Jay thought he was going to be drafted into military service; so he sold that place and bought land from Rubya€™s brother Darris and built a house near Rubya€™s parents.
He worked from Jackson, Tennessee, to Mobile, Alabama, and was away from home a lot of the time, living in camp cars.
She lived in the Wheatfield community and attended school first at Wheatfield, she thinks through the fifth grade. He served for six years as Associate Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, six years as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, and Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs for fourteen years, except for serving three times as Interim Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and for one month as Interim Chancellor. He has served as chairman of the Administrative Board, Chair of the Board of Trustees, and Lay Leader in the Oxford-University United Methodist Church and as president of the Oxford-Lafayette County Heritage Foundation and the Lafayette County Historical and Genealogical Society.

They lived in two different apartments on the University of Mississippi campus while both were in graduate school.

Either way, the transfer to college will be a meaningful experience for all, regardless of who shares your room. Welcome the opportunity to share some of your own items and borrow some things from your roommate you may not have. Signing up with your roommate means more cumulative points overall and more money saved on commonly needed items.
If you and your roommate are planning on taking the same course, split the cost of one textbook and then work out a rotation schedule for your reading time and homework. Before you move in, plan to go shopping together and search for items that you’ll both be able to get a lot of use from. Work out a plan with your roommate to commonly use one printer and to rotate buying paper and ink. But being thick skinned could make you oblivious, and if you’ve picked up on potential problems you might encounter in the future just by spending a few hours with your new roommate, you’re obviously not that. You’re not about to let a minor setback in the form of a troublesome roommate keep you from successfully completing what you set out to do.
It becomes impossible to keep college stress at bay if you have to confront an uncaring roommate every time you’re in your dorm room. The answer is to lead by example and inform your roommate about changes you make in your room, no matter how small.
Ask permission if you intend to clean the space you share, so that you don’t accidentally throw away important stuff that has been lying around. Here are three types of questions to be sure to ask your roommate before the day of the big move-in. In fact, living with someone with completely different tastes and interests may help expose you to a whole new realm of previously undiscovered music, movies, hobbies, or lifestyles. Make sure to buy yourself an eye mask or ear plugs to learn to sleep through his or her early rise.
Ri??uby thinks he might have started school at Dover or Jaw, and she believes the school building was on or near the Ben Ezell place.


The only thing that Rubya€™s father did not like about Jay was that he smoked (Ruby said that she and Jay could not get flour for a long time during the Depression but that Jay always found money for tobacco!).
They lived there one year and then moved to tenant home owned by Andrew McNair, fairly near Jay's parents' home. While the house was being built, Jay and family lived in a tenant house on Aunt Lessie and Uncle Byrd Hillmana€™s place, the property once owned by Green Berry Walton.
She then began work on her doctorate at the University of Memphis in 1989 and took a leave of absence for the next two years to complete her degree. They bought a house in Oxford in 1962 and lived there until 1971, when they bought a bigger house in Oxford. Ruby thinks he might have started school at Dover or Jaw, and she believes the school building was on or near the Ben Ezell place. They had made earlier moves in a horse-drawn wagon, but this time Darris Williamson, Ruby's brother, moved them in his truck.
While the house was being built, Jay and family lived in a tenant house on Aunt LessieA  and Uncle Byrd Hillmana€™s place, the property once owned by Green Berry Walton. It’s silly to have duplicates of the same things, so talk with your roommate before you move in together and discuss what you’re both willing to share. Cooking equipment is the perfect example of something you can share with your roommate and both get a lot of use out of. Although, make sure to put the printer in a place that will be convenient for both of you to use to avoid complications and conflict.
If your skin isn’t thick enough and every snide comment directed at you turns your head, don’t sweat it. Remember, your determination to finish college must be stronger than your instinct to start a territorial fight with your roommate, no matter how deserved. We know for sure that he went to school at Rocky Ridge and then went to BeBetter through the eleventh grade. They first rented an old house, no longer standing, which had previously been the residence of Mr. One year Ruby and her siblings Darris, Beatrice, and Lamberth stayed in a rented house near Mr. They have lived in Oxford, then, since 1956, except for one nine-month period when they were at the University of Nebraska in 1969-70. Here are five things you can think about sharing with your roommate and live without breaking the bank. He checked on Johnny and Gerald the next morning and found their bed covered in snow that had blown in through cracksi??and openings.) They moved to their current house in 1943 or 1944. He checked on Johnny and Gerald the next morning and found their bed covered in snow that had blown in through cracksand openings.) They moved to their current house in 1943 or 1944. He entered the Neshoba County Nursing Home in December 1997(his brother Leon was already there) and died there on March 17, 1998.
You’ll be surprised to find how much those conversations and visits mean after being away for a while.
For example, before the school year begins, roommates talk about joining different organizations which can include going Greek. Another example is studying for an exam while every other roommate may suggest going to a party. While being away from home, first year students may have the desire to be social, instead of studying.
Speak up to your roommate, tell them you have priorities and that you need to find a way to accommodate each other in such a small space. The first day of college is more than just attending a new class, it’s entering a whole new world.It’s been 12 years since I had my first day of classes. By my final semester I had made many more mistakes, been late a million more times, and still managed to get lost on campus after all those years. Those issues among a million others seemed to happen to everyone though, and after a few years of it, the fretting stopped and it was just understood that college is a dynamic environment. Everyone was trying to find their way, it wasn’t just me who struggled from time to time.More than a decade later, I wondered what today’s freshmen were dealing with. As a result, I got eight hours of sleep every night and felt more energized and aware when I woke up in the mornings. My energy levels stayed high throughout the day and when it was time to go to bed at night, I fell asleep easily.All that changed when I went to college. My sleep schedule was completely wacky, and as a result, my overall health suffered.It turns out I was not alone. Also, when freshmen do sleep, they tend to think that they are getting a better quality of rest than they really are.
You need to work together early in the relationship to define what that will look like in your room. Whether you and your dorm roommate are bound to be life-long friends, or counting the days until holiday break to get away from one another, we want to show you how to start off on the right foot. What started at CollegeHumor is making its way around the Web faster than a rumor in the dorm.What is pasted here is an excerpt from an exchange between two new college roommates on Facebook.
Nolan originally reached out to Jordan to make the transition to living together in a 10×10 cell, I mean room, a little more amicable. Nolan, a pre-med student, volunteered to bring the fridge and asked that Jordan bear some of the responsibility by bringing the microwave. I lived on an all-girls floor at the University of Oklahoma during my freshman year and met my best friends there. I will never forget the late night trips to the ice-cream shop and “The Bachelor” marathons we watched together. I cannot imagine what it would have been like if I had gone to Stanford, The University of Chicago, or any of the other 50 universities where co-ed dorm rooms are now available.As is to be expected, many parents are deeply troubled by this. And like many freshmen, you may be about to experience the most frustrating part of adjusting to school: living with a total stranger in a tiny dorm room. And the first thing you can do is establish a good relationship with your roommate over the summer before school starts. Getting to know each other a little bit now will make the transition easier, and you can use cyberspace to do this easily.When meeting your roommate, keep an open mind.
When I first called my roommate, I felt like she was looking for things not to like about me.
You certainly don’t have to be best friends with your roommate, or even friends at all—but you will have a much easier time if the two of you are friendly to and respectful of each other. So assume the best about your roommate, especially at first.Once you get to know each other a little, summer is a good time to talk about expectations you have about the room, or even to draw up a roommate contract.
Compromise is important, but it’s also important that you let each other know what you expect. For example, if one of you isn’t cool with overnight visits from the opposite sex, get that out in the open now before it becomes a problem.
On a more practical note, summer is a good time to discuss things you’re going to bring to the room. You can also discuss color schemes to make sure things don’t horribly clash.If you can, meet your roommate in person.
