The spring of my senior year of high school, I was beginning to freak out because I did not yet have a roommate for the fall. I did not know anyone going to South and I feared getting a random roommate. In the midst of my roommate-searching stress a Jag Guide, just like myself, called me and let me know about South's Roommate Connection Page. I joined the page, posted a short bio about myself, and soon after I received a message from a girl who (not knowing at the time) would become my future roommate. After moving in together we realized we were a perfect match. We were like the same person!! Everyone we met thought we had been best friends for a long time before we moved in. We just worked. We both wanted to go into the medical field, liked the same music, loved for things to be clean and in their place, had the same values... The list could go on and on. We had so much in common! Having her as a roommate was such a blessing! I was feeling really home sick and she made me feel a little more at home. We went everywhere and did everything together. She encouraged me and lifted me up when I needed it and she also challenge me if she saw I was falling behind. I did the same to her. She definitely made my freshman year experience worthwhile! I would not change a thing! You might have actually seen our faces around on housing brochures!
But wait, the story gets even BETTER! So during our freshman year we met and became really close with another girl who was just like us! Now all three of us live together and it is GREAT! I have loved every minute of getting the opportunity to live with these two lovely ladies! They say that your roommate has a big influence on your college experience and I believe that 100%. These two have made my experience here at South all the more better!
