A Few Tips for Getting Along with Your Freshman Roommate

Move-in day on your campus and there is an exciting buzz in the air. This is the day that you will move in to a tiny room with your roommate you don't know. Your first roommate experience can have a lot to do with how your first few months in college will be like. Here are a few tips on how to make your roommate experience as good as possible.

1. Respect their space.

The fact of the matter is that both of you probably would not want to be living in that small of an area with someone they don't know. It's good to establish some ground rules right away. For example, try to keep all of your stuff on your side of the room because the last thing that your roommate wants to see is your dirty clothes oh his side of the room.

2. Respect each others schedules

Sleep is very valuable in college. If you have an 8 am lecture class every morning and he doesn't have to wake up until 10:00, BE QUIET. Once your alarm goes off, turn it off quickly and try to get ready as quietly as possible and let him sleep. This simple gesture will allow you and your roommate to have a better relationship right off the bat.

3. Hygiene

Like I've said before, you are going to live in a very small dorm room together for awhile so it's important to practice good hygiene. Wear deodorant and shower are two things that seem like common sense, but a lot of people do not do it. Wash your Twin XL Bedding and your clothes frequently. If you follow all of these steps, your roommate experience will be at least tolerable. The name of the game will be respect. Even if the two of you don't really like each others personalities, then you will at least have to respect each other.

So You're Gonna Be A College Athlete: How to Be a Champion On The Field & In The Classroom

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
