Living in the dorms, no matter which residence hall, is an experience I feel every student should go through. It prepares you for the ‘real world’ while surrounding you with students going through similar experiences of your own.Jordan G.
Roommate and Community Agreements
Roommate relationships that work are characterized by honest communication, mutual respect, and shared flexibility. Your Resident Assistant (RA) will help you and your roommate(s) develop a roommate agreement that will set the norms you agree to live by. Be ready to be honest about your views on guests, housekeeping, personal property, privacy, and quiet time.
Similarly, peace and harmony on a floor happen when respect and cooperation are shared by all group members. Your RA will work with your floor members to help you set your community standards. Everyone will help decide how your community will deal with things like cleanliness, noise, safety, and vandalism.
