Questions to Ask a Potential College Roommate

Monday, February 26, 2018

Happy Monday y'all! I am so excited to share today's blog post with y'all: questions to ask your potential college roommate! I know high school seniors are starting to receive college acceptances and decide where they will be going to college in the fall, which is such an exciting time (I seriously feel old as it feels like it was just yesterday that I decided to go to Clemson).

After deciding on a college, it seems like the next item on the to-do list is to find a roommate. Most colleges have a Facebook group for future students (ours is Clemson University Class of 2021, for example) and a lot of people use it to find their roommate, which is incredibly helpful if you don't know anyone going to the same college as you (which was me!).

A lot of people will post an introductory post with a few sentences about themselves- mine usually said something along the lines of "Hey y'all! I'm Katie and I'm definitely going to Clemson in the fall. I'm from Charlotte, NC and will be majoring in Elementary Education. I will definitely be going through sorority recruitment and am looking for a roommate! Message me if you're interested or want to chat". I then messaged different people to talk about rooming together and it's kind of comical to think about how stressed out I got over it looking back at it.

I found that having some good questions on hand help these conversations go better and also see if y'all would be good roommates. I found it helpful to ask some "deep" questions about faith or partying important as if you and your roommate are more compatible in these questions, it will make living together easier, even if it's awkward to ask!

Anything you would add? Let me know in the comments!
