Dear 100 Hour Board,

Who decides the freshman room mates & floor mates, & what is the criteria? It seems like a very important job, because it sets the tone for the whole BYU experiance.


A: Dear Newbie,
When you filled out your application for living in the dorms, you probably filled out a survey of all of your preferences, quirks, annoying habits, sleep schedule, etc. If people request a certain roommate(or roommates), that takes precedence over this questionairre. If not, then the survey is entered into the computer, and people who would be the most compatible(according to their answers) are placed together in a room. As far as floormates go, they're randomly assigned. Hope you've been assigned to the right place!
