    Kathryn's Bio:
    Hello! My name is Kathryn McCarrick. I grew up in Saint Paul as an only child. I am an Elementary Education major hoping to specialize in 4th, 5th or 6th grade. I chose CSS because of the vibrant and wholesome community that inspires me to be a better person every day. In my free time I hang out with friends, study and watch various Netflix comedy specials (Bo Burnham is an all-time favorite). On campus I am involved in inkeeping, where students can choose to stay with me in my dorm overnight, and the choral program.

How to Get Along With Your Roommate Who You Have Never Met

Coming to CSS, I was assigned a roommate. We talked a bit beforehand about who was bringing what but never really talked about what our relationship will be like. Here’s a tip:

Don’t Be Best Friends With Your Roommate

It will turn into petty arguments and you will have no place to go to cool off. This one small example is a good one and happened to many people I know over the course of the previous year.

I was not best friends with mine but we had a working relationships. We made a point to not leave petty notes on mirrors or texts unless we really needed something. But we also always had each others backs. One half of the room was mine and the other half was hers. It worked out well for us to not always have to worry about what the other person was doing but still be able to have conversations about things that mattered.

If you want to be better friends with your roommate than we were, please do so. Just try not to be very petty and invade each others space too much. This will give the best emotional and academic outcome for you both.
