A big help in finding the best college roommate for you is Facebook. For most universities, after you are accepted you will be added to a Facebook group with all the other recently admitted students. From here, you can browse the members and choose your candidates. Now you get to “stalk” the different profiles and see which ones would be best suited for you. After this, you should start a conversation with them to better get to know them.

These are the Hottest Artists of Summer 2018
I recommend starting off with your hobbies, interests, etc. If you are similar there then you’re on the right track. Second, discuss your lifestyle: sleep schedule, major choices, if you workout or not, how clean you are, what you like the thermostat to be set on, and whether or not you are ok with overnight guests. In addition, it may be a good idea to discuss how you want to decorate your dorm/apartment! It would be a shame to choose a roommate and then the two of you have completely different ideas about color schemes and decorations. Some of these may seem minor, but when you are spending every day with this one person, they become extremely important.
After you have dwindled down your choices and come to a conclusion, I highly recommend planning a trip to meet them. My roommate and I did this and not only does it give you an opportunity to hang out with your future roommate in real life, it also makes moving in with them a whole lot less awkward. We went to Universal so that is pretty ideal, but you can do whatever you and your froomie decide to and it will definitely be better than doing nothing!
After you choose and hopefully meet your roommate, don’t stop talking! Whether you text, Snapchat, facebook message, or what, make sure you keep talking so that you won’t risk it being awkward when you finally do move in. If you follow all of these tips then chances are you will love your roommate, and she might just become your best friend like mine did.
