College is hard. Living with a bad roommate makes it even harder. Here are some things to avoid, lest you be categorized as a bad roommate.

Don’t Become “These” Roommates

Your first semester at Ohio University could be the first time you’ll share a living space with someone else. Roommates come in all shapes and sizes, and while they can be a lot of fun, they also can be a potential disaster. A bad roommate won’t make or break your freshman year, but living with a difficult person is never a fun time. Avoid becoming “that roommate” with these tips.

The Slob

There’s nothing wrong with being lazy every now and then, but give your roommate the courtesy of keeping the room clean. Slobs are notorious for having foul-smelling rooms due to poor hygiene and the inability to do laundry or take out the trash. Living in a smelly room might as well be a death sentence, so do your part to keep things neat and tidy.
