The possibilities are endless! You could sneak some Pepsi in there and have a secret late night, co-ed, advanced Greek study session...
What about rooming with the RA do you like? Is he a personal friend or just someone you'd like to know better?
I roomed with him last year (being first-year students who didn't know each other previously), and it worked out pretty well for both of us, so we're going to try another year. Being the RA's roommate should be a fine stewardship to experience, and fun.
And he was the RA last year as well?
That's cool that you get to live with your buddy from last year. I think being an RA translates into a discount in tuition, or some other privileges.
@Beth: No, this is is first year as an RA.@Rob: RAs get paid something like $4000/yr, which is less than it costs to live on campus.I heard some other news to the contrary recently, so we'll see what happens.
