Your first few weeks in college will be a difficult time no matter what, but getting along with your roommate will help make the transition so much easier! Right now, the idea of having a roommate might seem like it will only complicate the issue of moving out. However, if you simply get off on the right foot with your roommate, you’ll have an entire year to look forward to exploring your new home with your roommate.

Instead, start with a blank slate and build your relationship from there.
