Meeting new roommates or housemates can be different for everyone. For some, you may hit it off right away and for others, it might take some time. If any of you are like me, you’ll be awkward and dodge your new roommate within seconds of meeting them. But luckily I redeemed myself and, after living in a dorm with each other for a year, my roommate and I created a lifelong friendship! During those early mornings, long days and late nights spent together there are various activities you can do to bond with a roommate.
