Transcript orm life a unique experience at commuter school Story by Katherine Mayse Although students can choose a person they know as a roomate, they can also reserve a room and take their chances with a random roommate, better known as a perfect stranger. ife at UH is different for everyone. However it is more different for some than others. More than 80 percent of the student*commute to class, but for the few students who live on campus, UH is like a completely different university. Living in the dorms affords students luxuries like being able to wake up only minutes before class starts without being late, and living away from home without having to cook or do pesky things like pay utility bills. It also gives residential students a greater sense of community and connection to the university. The Department of Residential Life and Housing employs both students and a professional staff to help instill a sense of community in the residence halls. Resident Advisors are students who live on each floor of each dorm and help students adjust to living around so many of their peers. They help settle roommate conflicts and promote a friendly environment by organizing gatherings for dorm residents. Although there are definite perks to living on campus, residential life has its downside, too. Regardless of the dorm students stay in, no students have their own bathroom. From Cougar Place, where students share restroom real estate with one other person, to the community bathrooms of Moody Towers, which are built for the use of up to 35 people, there is always the chance that the roommate, suitemate or person down the hall is just that much faster in getting to the shower. Dorm rooms are not the most glamorous dwellings in the first place, but in addition to inadequate closet space and limited leg room, residential students have roommates. Roommates can be sources of great joy or consternation. A best friend from elementary school can sprout horns and a tail upon becoming a roommate. Although students can choose a person they know as a roommate, they can also reserve a room and take their chances with a random roommate, better known as a perfect stranger. "My roommate and I did not get along at all" Julie Modgling said. "I didn't know her before moving in and she always had friends over while I was trying to sleep or study, then she was rude when I asked her to keep it down. We got new roommates last semester though" Modgling concluded. Not all roommate stories are bad, though. Most residents get along with their roommates, and cases of truly hostile roommate situations are rare. "My roommate and I had never met and had only spoken on the phone once before moving in, but we got along very well" Allison Turner said. "We ended up rooming together for two years and are still friends!' 78
