I won't even write a lengthy post talking about what the thread is about, I will just bullet point.

My situation:
+going to college
+going to be in a small three person dorm
+scared about the first few weeks sharing such a small space with two other strangers

My questions:
-Any tips or tricks you have come across when it comes with you moving in with people you don't know?
-How would it benefit me to act in the first few weeks? (meek, jockish, smart, pretentious, ect.)
-Any one else in a similar situation (ie, new college roommates)?



[NB. in reality I'm not that "scared" for the experience and am really rather excited but I said I was "scared" for the purpose of it being a conversation starter ]

You gonna get raped.


Seriously, though. Don't worry about it. It's not gonna kill you to have a roommate or 2, and you'll learn a thing or 2 about yourself. And who knows, you may become friends with them.

Dude, if you think you got a tough situation, take a look at mine. I'm staying in a four person dorm at Georgia Tech. I'm from Virginia, one is from south Carolina, another from India, and the other from South Korea.

I'm excited for the opportunity to meet some people from different cultures, but at the same time, I'm worried that these differences will cause some major friction.

Scared, why? It's university, not the sex offender's unit in San Quentin. Just turn up with some beer, your guitar and some video games. Friends for life.

Budweiser? You may as well turn up in a skit and with breasts. Bring a man's beer, REAL ALE!

Depends on how they are. I've had horrible dorm experiences (not college, but I've spent around a month at a time in a dorm on multiple occasions) because of noisy, obnoxious neighbors and roommates.

I'd be like "dude you just fucked our door, and now there's beer all over everything". Not that I didn't have both those things happen to me at college. Bunch of the guys swapped most of the doors on the floor once so none of the keys would match.

I ask this of everyone with a dorm room question. Would it be cheaper to just get a house in town? Way more space for parties. I loved college for a while, but on Australian campuses you actually get your own room. Once you're legally an adult, you shouldn't be sharing a room. Where are you supposed to fuck? Are you really going to ask some girl to take her clothes off in front of your roommates?

I feel that you miss out if you aren't in the dorms for at least one year. After that, get the hell out and find a house or apartment. Two people is a good number though, as if your roommate sucks you can ignore him, whereas three or more people can cause friction. That said, when I had a single roommate things sucked, but two roommates (of different nationalities) was freaking awesome and we ended up as best friends.

Its basically a crap shoot. Luck has alot to do with it, so hope you are lucky and just go there and be yourself.
