About This Quiz

Going off to college is an exciting time in anyone's life, especially those who have just left high school. The thought of living away from your family, truly gaining your independence, while working towards your future and making new friends can be scary but also fun. 

Most schools require that first-year students live on campus in dorm rooms, often with one or two roommates. There are very few lucky people who can choose their roomies before getting to campus, but most times, people have no clue until they get there.

We have all heard the horror stories of people getting roommates from hell, some of which have even made headline news for bullying or assault. There are also those who build lifelong friendships because of sharing a little dorm room. 

What kind of roommate would you get, and will you get along with them or will you be running down to the housing department to get a new one?
