Hello Class. Today’s chapter is on something you may spend a great deal of time "stressing" about… roommates. Whether you live in a residence hall, off campus, or in a fraternity or sorority, you will likely have a number of different roommates during college, and you are also likely to have problems with at least one of your roommates. You shouldn’t think you will be immune to this problem if you know your roommate ahead of time. It is often people who know one another who are most likely to either take advantage of each other, or fail to communicate adequately when problems do arise. To make you aware of some of the potential problems and give suggestions that will help you avoid them, today you will hear from both a professional who has a number of years experience working in the residence halls, and a student who has a number of interesting experiences with roommates. First will be Kent Sampson.

lance7.gif (40743 bytes)Kent Sampson is Director of Campus Life at OSU, with special emphasis on long range planning for student life. He has witnessed the OSU Residence Hall Association win the National School of the Year Award four times (more than any other school in the United States). He has served as President of their regional housing association, and has been district representative to the national association, twice. He has been published in "Advice for Advisors" (The chapter he wrote is entitled " Group Development Concepts"), and enjoys volunteer-coaching girls softball and basketball. He received Dean Frank McFrank award presented by SGA as the Outstanding Administration and Kenstoner distinguished service award.

Then you will hear a narrative description of her roommate history from Bonnie Guara.  Bonnie Guara is a recent graduate who teaches at an elementary school. She is from Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
