Television shows like New Girl, Friends, and The Big Bang Theory make having a roommate seem like a blast. However, not everyone is lucky enough to have a roommate like Jessica Day or Rachel Green. Surviving Dorm Life provides college students with an idea of what to expect before ever stepping foot into their new living space. This book is full of tips and tricks ranging from sleeping patterns to unwelcome guests. Personality traits can also cause a lot of conflict. This book unravels how to deal with different types of roommates, such as neat freaks and slobs. Fighting over who does the dishes may seem like biggest problem there will ever be and this book does cover that but if things get seriously bad, that's covered, too. We take a look at how to deal with roommates that are depressed, have an eating disorder, or have a substance abuse problem. This book is full of case studies garnered from hours of interviews with college students, both new and graduated. Your roommate is using your personal stuff, they re staying up too late, they re making too much noise, they re being rude, and they re neglecting to pay their share of the bills. If you are worried about any of these potential problems, by book's end, you ll know everything you need to know to put the issues to rest and survive dorm life.
