Having a roommate is a huge part of college. It is a big transition that affects every person differently. Living with a complete stranger is a life-changing experience. They either become one of your best friends or just one more irritating person you have to deal with on a daily basis. The last thing anyone would want is to have a roommate with strange habits to add to the stress of college life. Here is a list of the most outrageous roommate behaviors that I came across after conducting several interviews.

“My roommate had this weird habit where she had to sing a certain song out loud a couple of times before she sleeps. It was like a ritual since her childhood. I would be sleeping and she would start singing her song at the top of her lungs. I had to deal with that for a whole semester,” said Susan Snore.
