Meeting My College Roommate - Finally!

 

Rosemont College roommatesI have been a full time student at Rosemont for just over two weeks now and I am learning something new everyday! Whether it is in the classroom or in the dorm room down the hall, there is always new information, both helpful and surprising, floating through my ears. There was almost too much information being thrown at me during the freshman orientation weekend.

Thanks to Coach Gordy (what a wonderful man...) I was late arriving to the kick-off ceremony on Friday morning. As I sat in McShain Auditorium, I was looking around at my new classmates. I realized they all had brightly colored t-shirts and maroon tote bags- neither of which I had (that problem was easily corrected) but I also did not have my roommate who was coming from the good old state of Texas. Well, technically I knew of her but I had yet to meet her in person. Her belongings were in my room and her text messages were saying she was actually in the same state but I was not going to believe it until I saw it. After visually searching the class of 2017 without any luck, we all headed over to lunch then began our group time. My favorite part of orientation occurred that afternoon when Fair Play came and we participated in many fast paced and high energy icebreakers. They were so different from the cliché icebreakers everyone is forced to participate in on the first day of school! I met so many people that I quickly forgot their names but their faces stuck. We were constantly switching into different groups of people during Fair Play so I figured I would turn around and there would be my elusive roommate... I was wrong.

The rest my first Friday as a college student consisted of talks with our Raven Peer Leaders (or RPLs) who deserve a tremendous shout-out because they spent a lot of time with freshmen- a job that not many people would want, and some volleyball. I began to think that I imagined all those virtual conversations with my “roommate” and that I would be living alone for my first year but as I headed back to my dorm after making friends with the girls down the hall who would be getting air conditioning (I am glad we have the ability to pick our friends) there she was! In the flesh! She wasn’t in Texas anymore! I like to say I am lucky because my roommate is perfect (even if she has a tendency to think she will drown when it rains).


Saturday was filled with informative presentations and a trip to Dorney Park and on Sunday we had the Convocation Ceremony, which is a tradition that definitely sets Rosemont College apart. Overall, orientation weekend introduced me to many new friends and made me feel like I was finally a real student at Rosemont. Next week? The third floor of Kaul Hall...
