Learning To Cope With The Stranger Next Door
Moving far from home could be a
very traumatic and nerve wracking
experience for anyone, who was not
used to living with other people.
College was a change, but living
with other people was an experience
"I'm lucky I ended up with someone I got along with," said Debbi
Martin, "Living in the dorms was a
real learning experience for me.
Fortunately, it was an overall pleasant experience since I did not have
to face any major problems with my
roommate or suitemates. If something came up we just simply talked
about it and worked it out."
Loud music and rowdy talk sessions were just a few inconveniences
that occurred daily in residence
halls life. Tolerance and compromise were the key elements needed
to make it a pleasant experience.
Living in the residence halls was
like having a home away from
home. There was always someone to
turn to if you needed anything. You
learned patience because you where
constantly around many other people. But in the end, you learned
from it and enjoyed it. -Jennifer
