Let's talk about the benefits of having a roommate!

Studies show that students who have a roommate their first year tend to have an increased GPA and a healthier lifestyle that promotes both personal fitness and a greater sense of balance.

Additionally, students who have a roommate gain a greater appreciation for diversity and seem to connect to campus life in a greater way!
