What should I do to get to know my roommate?

We encourage you to talk with your roommate, avoid using social media as a means to get to know him or her. Create time to interact with your roommate. Go to a meal or a hall activity together. 
Find common interests or take the opportunity to learn about something new to you that your roommate enjoys and can teach you about. Do not forget that your Resident Assistant can be a great resource to help you in this endeavor.
