As you roommate with an American, you will have an opportunity to enjoy the unique opportunity of learning about life in our homelands.  As you teach and learn new vocabulary, you will no doubt learn to share certain  words and expressions that will bond the two of you in a special way. As you explain social customs, you yourself may gain a new understanding of American life. 

International students should be sensitive, caring people who understand the need for privacy, time for sharing and respect for differences. Please note that you might not know who your roommate is until the end of summer or late spring, when their attendance is confirmed.

We are looking forward to helping you better understand our culture.
