As you heard Dr. Exum speak earlier, we are here to help you.
Ask the question, has your son or daughter talked to the roommate, because that will be the first question the RA, REC, AC, and Asst. Dir. will ask. If they have and still have issues, then they should utilize the RA. Talking to the roommate more than once is okay and it is normal to solve problems in this fashion (Example husband and wife issues, you and your partner, you and your co-workers).Do not let an issue fester/grow this leads to stress and is not conducive to student successBegin your roommate relations by respecting each other and that will lead to friendship. Respect begins with communication and not assumption. Utilize the roommate agreement to set boundaries/guidelines and work through concerns. We will work with your son or daughter to come to a resolution where both students feel comfortable. This may require give and take aka compromise for both students.
