College comes with a lot of firsts for many of us. It might be the first time you're living away from your parents, the first time you're given a lot of responsibility, and the first time you're taking the reins on your daily schedule. Among these firsts, sharing a room for the first time in college is something that may have never crossed your mind when dreaming of this big day as a kid. If you're transitioning from having a room all to yourself at home, to sharing a tiny room in a dorm, it can be a bit of an adjustment. Even though the changes will take some getting used to, you'll soon realize that dorm life is truly the best life.
When you meet your roomie on move-in day, you'll both be organizing your new space. Soon enough, you'll become fast friends who help each other navigate the new world that is college. Sharing a dorm room bonds you like no other, and you'll realize that these seven experiences of living together are what makes your friendship so legit. As someone who successfully turned her freshman year roomie into a best friend for life, I hope the same goes for you this upcoming school year.
