How can students get the most out of life in the dorms?
Be honest when you complete the application for roommates. Do not say you go to bed late if you don't, do not say you like to wake up early if you don't; most colleges try hard to pair students who have similar behaviors, likes and dislikes so be honest. Additionally, respect your roommate and require the same, remember that although you share this small space what is yours is yours, and what is theirs is theirs, do not "borrow/steal" without permission. If you get someone that is simply unbearable talk to housing, or request a single (you will pay more) but you can live the way you choose.
