To all the applicants who have recently chosen a college—congratulations! Getting in and deciding where to go is a terrific accomplishment.
So what happens next? Once you submit your enrollment deposit, your new school will send you a variety of forms. Some are sort of annoying (e.g., the vaccination form), but others are more interesting (e.g., the class registration form).
Another form that will soon land in your mailbox is the housing application, which will determine where—and with whom—you live on campus in the fall. As your dorm and your roommate(s) will play a substantial role in your freshman year, Montgomery Educational Consulting has offered the following advice to consider as you fill out this important app:
- Be honest.
- Investigate “living and learning” communities.
- Be prepared to compromise.
