Living with a roommate can be one of the most rewarding, fun and educational aspects of your college experience. Despite "roommate horror stories" you may hear about in popular culture, the truth is roommate relationships are like most relationships - they require communication, mutual respect, understanding, a common set of expectations and a good sense of humor. NAU students experience a high roommate satisfaction rate, and those who communicate regularly and get to know each other are the most satisfied.

Remember the college experience isn't just about the education you will receive in the classroom; outside of the classroom you will also grow by challenging yourself and exploring new ideas.
