You’ll certainly have problems with your college roommate

The only question is how significant those problems are.

You can’t live in such close quarters with another human being and not have occasional tension. Not in a dorm room, not in a marriage, and not at work. There is no such thing as perfect harmony in a human relationship.

I can think of two instances in the last three years where a freshman athlete genuinely needed to switch roommates. I can think of many more instances where the athlete just needed to learn to work through the tension of having a roommate.

Much more important than who your future roommate is — what sort of attitude will you bring to the inevitable difficulties of having a roommate in the first place?
