Airband here at Delaware is an event that takes place in the Greek life here on campus. Each sorority and fraternity chapter is required to put together a dance that is choreographed originally to music, and the winner is decided on based off of dance choreography, originality, costumes, props, and a million other things that go into it. I decided to sign up thinking I was getting myself into a fun thing to take part in my sorority. Little did I know this was an event that takes place at the Big Bob, would sell out on Ticketmaster, and I would be doing 2 a days for a month before it waking up at 7 AM. While my life is crazy and I’m completely exhausted I’ve learned a few things-how to managed my time EVEN better, and it’s like a new world on campus at 7AM. Looking forward to our big event next Friday…!
So today as I sat in Morris trying to do the monotonous scheduling of my classes for next year, I couldn’t even believe I was registering to be a Sophomore! WHAT IS MY LIFE?! Thinking back to last April, finally picking a school, and then all summer long stocking up on my college things, worrying about the first day, what to wear, and then everything that I’ve experienced over the past year is incredible. Ohhh how I seriously would give anything to relive it. Best year of my life by far. I can’t even think about how much I’ve matured, learned and grown as a person. I’ve met so many incredible people from around the world, learned how to live independently and been to places that I had never seen, or even heard of before. Everyone says that years of college really do go by fast, and it does. I feel like in the blink of an eye I’ll be a senior!
So this past weekend, a few girls from my high school came to visit me. Aside from their millions of questions that they had about the school and everything else, one thing that they said they were really nervous about for college was their roommates. And I promise, you really should not be too nervous. At Delaware you can pick your roommate, or even just get assigned a random one which the University will match you up with based upon your compatibility with someone else. When you have a roommate, even if you are best friends you will definitely have your days when you aren’t happy with them. It’s just like living with your family… But for the most part having a roommate is a fun experience-it’s an instant friend, if you’re a girl; more clothes to borrow, and just someone who is always there to listen. I started out at Delaware with a roommate and we had our differences. (Out of all of my friends here, I am the only one that ended up leaving their rooming situation.) It literally has worked out for everyone here having a roommate, as well as all of my friends from other schools too who were randomly assigned someone to live with. I switched rooms with my old roommate because we were complete opposites and could not agree on anything. And to switch rooms is really, really easy. I ended up moving to a different room on my floor because I loved the girls that I live with now. It was an easy switch, and I didn’t even have to leave my friends, and now I live in a single on my floor and things are much better. Don’t stress about a roommate because in the end, worst case scenario moving out is not as awkward, or stressful as you may think!
