Anyone can visit the web page of questions that are asked of our first-year students. Some of it is mundane, but other questions allow for some creativity that reveal interesting facets of personality.
Some of my favorite responses are:
"I need a roommate that can put up with my ever-changing moods."
"I would really like a tolerant/lighthearted roommate considering I was voted Most Awkward as my senior superlative..."
"I am very down to earth, and open minded. I also believe strongly in horoscopes and star sign compatibility, therefore I don't usually mix well with other Aries."
From a male student, "I would prefer my roommate to be female, but I know that probably won't happen. But I can dream right?"
"I have trouble waking up. A roommate that wold wake me up in time for class would be nice, just like my mom, in a soothing voice..."
This is always an exciting time of year.
