*Take the roommate contract seriously:
Don't be silly and write simple statements on your roommate contract, be thorough! Answer all of the prompts on the back of the contract and be detailed. Don't write statements like, "Just be respectful" describe what that means to you. For some being respectful is turning off the lights when someone goes to bed, for others this means keeping the lights on for the person studying. Take the time to really talk with your roommate and get everything out in the open that you want to discuss.
