There is a lot of people in the world, which makes difficult us to define what qualities are important as a good roommate, but I believe that of the significance as a good roommate is the person who has a better intelligence and follows the rules.
In the school life, it will become good opportune if I get the roommate who has better intelligence. Sometime, the study in school provides me with difficulty in understanding the class, but in case that my roommate is highly knowledgable, it is chance for me to take an extra class in my roommate. The fact that we spend the most of time with my roommate gives me a warm atmosphere to ask what I cannot understand in class. When I was at high school, which compelled me to live in dormitory, my roommate was the person who took highest grade in my class.

Without the intelligent roommate, my mathematics grade never improved.

My university memories demonstrate that my first roommate was so selfish that he had always took the party in our room tonight even in the situation where the test was approaching. The test of our university was notorious in its difficulty, demanding me to study at night. My mid-night party taking place in my room, however, had always hindered me from studying at night. Moreover my roommate had always invited me to take in party.

My grade at that day was obvious, and there was no choice but to exchange my roommate. My second roommate can follow the rule that we never hold the party at the day near the test, which contributes my test score improving. My example vividly illustrates that the one of the most important quality of roommate is if they can promise the rule or not.
