Housing Sign-Up 2017
By Lindsey Loparo
Every year around this time, upperclassmen start signing up for where they want to live the next year. This year, though, a new process for signing up for housing has been introduced to the student body. Every year before this, students have had a time assigned to them and they physically go to the Housing Office to decide where they want to live the next year.

A new feature Mia Spires, a student and resident in Lide, said that really interests her is the “roommate questionnaire.” This feature works much like a dating website where the student fills out a personal profile, has a bio, and answers a few questions.

So go ahead and log on to the housing portal today to make sure you get the room and roommate that you want! Next semester will be here before you know it and move in day will be just around the corner!
