Getting to Know You – with West Texas A&M
For many of us, it was traumatic enough to have to share our bedroom with siblings. But as a young adult heading off to college, it can be even more traumatic to have to share a room with a total stranger. One of the challenges of moving away from home for the first time is getting to know your new roommate. West Texas A&M joins The Balancing Act for Roommate Etiquette 101! Set basic rules from Day 1, such as noise levels, cleaning, company/guests, sleep/study schedules, borrowing items, and food ownership, and you’re more likely to deal with issues the minute they surface.
