As August rolls around, roommate selections are going out to incoming students. To help with the “getting-to-know-you” process, our Move-In Monday series continues with advice and practical ways to reach out and get to know your roommate before arriving on campus.

Once you arrive on campus, always remember that communication is key. While you and your roommate don’t have to be best buddies, it is important to communicate and try to take an interest in each other’s lives. Attend games or campus events together, or try to have meals together on a regular basis. These are just small steps to build an understanding of one another. And who knows, you may even become friends after all.
