The resources Bromley Hall offers and the friendships you make throughout the year make the college transition process easier. My two years at Bromley Hall have been a positive life-changing experience and an integral part of my college tenure.
College Myth #1: Don’t choose a friend from High School as a roommate. Status: Debunked! Choosing a friend from high school may not actually be a bad thing. You hear about those horror stories where your best friends can be turned into your worst nightmare because you’re in an environment that you and your friend never shared before, but truth is, both sides have negative aspects. Choosing a random roommate is just that, it’s completely random. You don’t know what they’re going to be like, you know nothing about them, and true, they can turn into your best friend, but more often than not, they’ll have certain characteristics that might just push your buttons (I know, a bad pun). When I decided to move to Bromley, it was because my 2 other friends and I decided to room together. We decided Bromley was a nice place and we all booked a room. I can’t say it’s been perfect, but we definitely have been through thick and thin and have pulled through. We’re even closer friends now because of this experience than in high school and I don’t regret a thing. They’ve become like family to me, and if I had to do it all over again, they would be first choice! So when it comes to choosing your roommates, consider the benefits and consequences. If you choose to room with a friend, make sure you know them well enough, their goods and their bads, before you make a decision to room with them. If you don’t know anyone too well, then a random roommate would be just as great. I’ve heard of some great friendships being formed through random roommates. In the end, it’s your choice. Good Luck!
