Everyone’s heard a roommate horror story and while listening to them can be fun, no one wants to live one. If you want to avoid a rough roommate experience, check out Off Campus Life’s Roommate Mixer on Thursday, November 14th from 7:30-9:00 PM in the Festival Highlands Room.
This is a great opportunity to meet potential roommates through different icebreakers, games, and “speed dating” activities. Attendants will learn exactly what to look for in a roommate along with ways to handle conflicts that arise in a rooming situation. The event is a great opportunity if you are looking for a group of people to live with or if you’re in need of another roommate to fill a house or apartment. It will be an excellent chance to meet and connect with a wide range of people and it’s one of the only times you’ll be able to interact with so many potential roommates in person.
