    Changing Roommates Choosing to leave the comforts of your family and home to go away to college is a life-changing decision. The roommate you get matched up with can make or break your experience. The girl I was matched up with changed my life considerably in a way I didn't like, so I moved out. Moving was the best choice I could have made. The first sight of my new dorm room was not at all what I expected. There were boxes and papers everywhere. Out from behind a tower of boxes emerged the

    Dorm Life College can be great; living with your roommates can be a nightmare. But wait……before you throw in the towel, make sure you know and understand the rules of a dorm room. Dorm life is something almost every college student must experience. It’s not as easy as it seems either.

I didn't get a chance to meet Jodi until very late in the year, around February. But up until that time, I had gotten to know her very well. The thing was that since they lived so far apart they didn't call each other until late at night. Most of the time, when she called, Chad wasn't there. It was actually quite ironic, Jodi's roommate was a girl that I graduated with. This

    “If you study balls to the wall from now on, you just might pass this class”- said my roommate when he saw me studying for the Financial Statement Analysis course, “Professor is a real ball breaker.” When I heard that phrase, I assumed he was referring to testicles, but in fact he wasn’t. Balls to the wall means to push to the limit, go all out, full speed. This is a very colorful phrase; one needs to be careful when using it. Although its real origin is very benign, most people assume it is a reference

Those who oppose my view on this question may be quick to ask me how come we go by law and not morality in society.  Last year at St. Louis University I had a roommate with the complete opposite view on this question. He explained himself this way: Human nature consists of three basic components.  These are to live, propagate, and to dominate.  If humanity was left without any other parameters,
