In many universities,dormitory rooms must be shared by two students.University`s assignment is a common way for solving the problem that who will live together,but is it a wise one? As far as I am concerned,it is better for student to choose his own roommate.Because there are more advantages for the students.
First of all,pepole always want to share the room with the person with similar habit or intrests.In this way they can live more harmony .A good case in point is my sister.Because her university permits students to choose their roommates ,so she decided to share the room with her good friend who has the similar habit with my sister. Every morning they both get up early and go to do some exercises together,and because both of them are interested in classic music,they often discuss the singers and songs at night.They seldom feel in convenient and are all pleased with each other.You can also just imagine what would be like if my sister get up early but her roommate always want to have more sleep.It is not surprising that they will often have querrals with each other.
Another advantage can be obviously seen from a particular example once I read on the newspaper.The man shared with the roommate who was assigned by the university.As he is avery introvert person,he love quiet very much.But unfortuely his roommtes have many friends and have party in their dormitory nearly every day.He had told his roommates that he want his dormatory be less nosiy,but his roommates didn`t listen at all.He is so unhappy and said he never expect to live with such a nosiy person.From this we can clearly see that it is better
to be shared a room with a person you familar with than a stranger.So before the university assign your roommate,you know nothing about him. so it is not surprising for you to meet the simlar thingas the man .
From what has been discussed above,it is wiser to choose the roommate rather than accept the assignment from univerity.
