True Life: I Live On Campus

True Life - Header 3
A series by Taylor Fukui.

I don’t know about you, but when I was preparing for college, I was the most nervous about living in the residential halls. What was it going to be like? What did my room look like? What if my roommate was weird? I had heard some great stories about how roommates became friends for life, but I had also heard the horror stories too—remember the movie “The Roommate”?

So what better way to get an insight into living in the residential halls (res. halls) than hearing stories from students who are living that life right now! Meet your newest WPC blog project True Life: I Live on Campus. This year I want to take you inside the halls to learn what it’s like to live on campus—the ups, downs, need-to-know info, and how to handle some of the situations you may encounter. Get inside information on the events, the sharing, and the place that may soon be your home!

Please welcome Bree, Sydney, Alexis, Alex, Kate, Selina, and Vivian as they kindly open their doors and share their res. hall stories. Learn everything from expectations, move-in, and programs in the halls to sharing a room with three other people.

      Yes! Move-in part two will be Alex and Kaitlin’s story! Then keep your eyes posted for move-in part three where international students, Vivian and Selina, share their story!

      If there was more to the move-in process that you would like to know about then please feel free to leave comments asking your questions or asking what you would like to hear more about!

      Keep posted for next month (November) when all three roommate pairs will be discussing the biggest adjustment to living in the res. halls!
