Get to know your roommate

When you receive your roommate match, we encourage you to call or email him/her before you arrive on campus in the fall. If you don’t already know your roommate, take a few minutes to introduce yourself. Here are some talking points to get the conversation started:

  • What is your family like?
  • Why did you decide to attend Hope?
  • Do you know others who are coming to Hope?
  • How big was your high school/previous college?
  • What are you most looking forward to at Hope?
  • What do you plan to study?
  • What are your interests?
  • What kinds of music do you like?
  • How do you like to study?
  • What time do you like to go to bed?
  • What do you plan to bring for the room?
