Transcript A whole New Life The time— the begin ning of the semester; the place— Moody Towers and the Quadrangle. Freshmen scurried around unpacking and saying last minute goodbyes to parents. Homesickness and an element of sadness prevailed but soon exhilaration set in. The concept of no parents and no curfew began to take root and freshmen were less disappointed to see their parents go. "Finally, I get to live on my own," thought Brian Varnadoe, a freshman Radio and Television major. Unfortunately, hard, cold reality set in. Freshmen living on campus learned that sharing quarters can be trying, to say the least. They also quickly found out that making a roommate or suitemate relationship succeed can be hard work. With their perceived freedom came a new sense of responsibility, and a much needed dose of patience. Freshman Rachel Bruce had to learn "to endure Kathleen McKenzie sips tea as she studies from the couch she installed to make her room more like a home.

Adjusting to living in close quarters with a virtual stranger can be hard work. Roommates must learn to consider and respect each other's needs. Allowing each other privacy and an adequate amount of space is also helpful. Certain policies, like time for visitors, should be discussed openly and as soon as possible to avoid conflict. "At first my roommate had people in our room at all times of the night," said freshman Psychology major Danyaile Edwards, "I didn't want to say anything because it's her room, too, but after a while I couldn't take it. And she was cool about it.We haven't had anymore problems because we try to discuss everything that could be potentially annoying." -Brigitte Batson and LaGuana Gray SouthTower 14th Floor- Shaun Heller, Daniel Ratzlaff, David Leal, David Gouner, Ali Sneed, Nate Tomate'.
