    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

Remedies for Loud Roommates

On the CSS campus, there are dorms for Freshmen and apartments for non-first-year students. This means that unless someone has a single room in the Freshmen dorm buildings, students will have roommates that they have to share their living spaces with.

One of the biggest issues with living with others is being able to find quiet times and quiet spaces to study. With only one living room and thin walls, TVs can sound amplified, conversations carry throughout the rooms, music becomes distracting, and that’s when feelings can get hurt.

Thankfully, there are a few remedies to living with loud and/or distracting roommates.

Each residential hall has study rooms that are specifically designed to be as distraction-free as possible, and far from dorm/apartment rooms. People understand that these study rooms are meant to be quiet and will respect that policy.

Somers Hall and Somers Suites have open lounges that can be used 24/7. During late nights, they are usually used by the residents of each floor for group studying. Every apartment building has a lounge, also. The apartment lounges tend to be empty most of the time and remain very quiet.

Storm’s Den in Tower is open all day long for people who want to study.

The Benedictine Commons in the science building is open until midnight on any given day and is probably just as quiet as the library.
