Unfortunately, you can’t move off campus until you are a sophomore. So here are some tips to help you survive dorm life until you can finally get a suite off-campus place.

Talk to EVERYONE – This is the one time in college everyone is looking for new friends, take advantage. It will never as easy to meet people as it is now next year, no matter where you live in Newark.

Study outside of your room – The dorm rooms are messy and loud, don’t try to study here. UD has plenty of places to go study in quiet. Just between Morris Library and the chapel in Trabant you are guaranteed to find your own desk area and with everyone studying around you, its hard not to feel pressured to stay concentrated. Plus then you can use your desk as extra closet space!

Friday nights are fun but Saturday morning is better – Its easy to drink a ton on a Friday night after a long week. Just don’t let that ruin your entire Saturday by being hungover. Saturday day drinks (better known as “dages”) are what UD is known for, so go easy on Fridays if you are having a hard time swallowing Burnettes at 9 am.

Don’t loft your bed – This may seem like a great idea to utilize space; which it is. But unless your planning to not drink all semester, you are pretty much guaranteeing yourself an accident. Don’t believe me? Go ask my freshman roommate how it felt to fall 10 feet during a post dage nap.

Go to the floor meetings….or don’t – Your RA will probably hold some meetings, especially in the beginning of the year, in order to get to know each other and plan some activities for the floor. This is a great way to meet people and make friends, but if you get invited to a big bbq by a sophomore you know from home, don’t sacrifice going just for a floor meeting. Just make an effort to meet people, it doesn’t matter how you do it!
