We Go Together! That Special Bond Between Roomies, by Jordan Cohen


Thanksgiving break is over.  You’re feeling kind of sad about leaving the fam, but then, you walk in the door of your dorm room or apartment, and you break out in a big smile, when you see your roomie is there waiting for you.  Jordan Cohen shares her thoughts with us about this bond like no other:

Roommates have a special kind of bond that not even best friends have. They see you more than anyone else, in the most sacred of places: your home. Your roommate won’t judge you for having three milkshakes in one day or wearing the same shirt for three days. They genuinely want to know how your test went or what the latest drama is in your life. Your roommates put up with a lot, and for that they are the greatest people on this planet. Luckily for you, you’re free to say and do whatever you please because your roommate is stuck with you! Despite the small space of a dorm room, big memories are sure to be made!
