As part of preparation to come to college, one of the decisions students face is where to live, and who to live with. Often, there are those who choose to room with their best friend. But how well does this work out? Is it a bad idea or good idea?
Debrah Galloway said, “I would definitely say that moving in with my best was a very good idea. It was the best idea.”
“Having a best friend…I think I’m so blessed I have more than one best friend in my apartment that we are living together”, mentioned Denis Tang.
“And everyone was like ‘Oh your not going to be friends after you roommate together that’s not going to be fun’ but it’s been so much fun. We party all the time”, said Abigail Beazer.
Unfortunately, not everyone walks away with good memories.
“My first semester I had me and my best friend roomed it was kind of uh… it seemed like it was going to be awesome because it was my first time at college you know it was like wahoo my best friend but it kinda ended being really rough. I got really annoyed with her and we just spent way too much time together and I wouldn’t do it again but we are still good friends and stuff. But it’s kinda hard to room.” Tabitha Daugherty said.
Danelle Pearson talks about her best friend, “Abigail Beazer, my roommate. We know what we like to do so then it makes it easier to get along…I don’t know it helped us grow closer together if that makes sense .”
Whether you are rooming with your best friend or not, living with other people is a big part of college. The decision whether to room again or not is left to you.
