Send Us Your Weird Roommate Horror Stories

Some college students are very fortunate. They come to campus, they are placed with random roommates, and those people quickly become their best friends. Others, however, have far less desirable experiences.

If you’re one of the poor, unfortunate souls stuck with a profoundly strange rooommate, or have a good tale about your friend’s odd drunken habits in your apartment, we want to know! Rant away about that bizarre, random roommate you got freshman year, or maybe the one you chose yourself. Don’t worry: All names will be kept anonymous.

Fill out the Google form below, or send the following information to [email protected] by Friday, Jan. 16:

  • Graduation year
  • Where you live(d)
  • Your weird roommate story

Who knows? Your story could be the one that makes someone else’s roommate problems seem mundane by comparison, or make those with roommates they love truly thankful for what they have.
