Chalk Talk: College Students and Roommates
When a student first prepares to go to college, they may begin to wonder about the roommate they will be assigned. This new person in their life is a stranger. Many roommates do not have any problems but this will not happen without some level of compromise and respect for each other’s needs. If there are problems parents need to help their child realize that resident assistance may be able to help them get over their differences or help with other concerns. Students need to realize that they do not have to put up with physical or verbal abuse. If this occurs, the student should go to the RA or the dean of students and request a change of housing. The student is not responsible for the other roommate’s belongings or for waking them up for class. With the student aware of these things the chances of their having a successful time at college will be more likely.
