CONGRATULATIONS AWARD 2014
ou’re not being honored because you’re totally freakin’ awesome at defecating in the closet or because you always throw up in the corner like a trained poodle. No, not at all! You’ve been worse! You’re being honored because you shave your back hair into the kitchen sink, eat cheerios with beer three times a day, wear your duct tape underwear and beer-box helmet when a “girlfriend” is over, wash your roommate’s dishes in the toilet and yodel your fight song at 2 a.m. That makes you, even though you don’t pay rent, the worst roommate ever! Take pride, few can achieve, fewer can be successful, but you are even worse! PRESENTED BY

Sorting Laundry Keeping Your Whites White
and Your Brights Bright Laundry knowledge is to college students as, well, general knowledge is to college students… nonexistent. One wrong move and your entire wardrobe
Defining Colors! Define light: baby blue, sky blue, baby pink, light denim, yellow, sport grey, white and pear green. Define bright: neon anything, orange, red, blue, green and teal. Define dark: navy, maroon, black, brown, forest green, dark denim, brick red and dark grey. What if I have a shirt that has black and white (for example) in it? Err on the side of caution: if it’s the only thing in your load that hasn’t been washed before, wash it with the darks. If it bleeds, it won’t harm the darks, but it could discolor the lights.
could turn into the PINK section at Victoria’s Secret. Here are some helpful hints on how to do your wash without ruining your favorite clothes.
Fabrics! Cotton and linen fabrics, towels, rugs, flannel and chenille items generate lint; try not to wash these with fabrics that attract lint, such as synthetics, permanent press and corduroy. Delicate and “loose” knits shouldn’t be washed with big, bulky or tough fabrics; delicates will usually have a tag that specifies that they are delicate. Types! Wash sheets, towels, and pants as their own loads (keeping in mind the color rule). These items tend to make a regular load really big; if you separate them into their own loads, your other loads are more manageable.
Totally useless fact: A crocodile cannot stick out its tongue.
Bleach! Whites are the only color that should get regular bleach – and only whites that have no other colors. Regular bleach will ruin any color. Too much bleach too many times will also turn your whites yellow. Color-safe Bleach can be used on colored items. Always read the bleach instructions and your clothing item’s care label. Do bleach loads last! You don’t want any chance of remaining bleach water messing with your later loads. 15

Finding an Apartment BEFORE YOU SET OUT: maKe a sHoPPing list. Are you looking for hardwood floors, dishwasher, washer and dryer? Do you have enough parking space for you and your roommates? Does the whole apartment need to be painted in orange and blue? you may not find everything, but it doesn’t hurt to set priorities. coVer tHe Bases. Many landlords will want to verify your references. Phone ahead to alert possible references, including your former landlord, that they may receive a call.
DURING THE SEARCH: trY to see tHe Units in tHe DaYtime. you’ll want to know how much natural light an apartment gets. It’s helpful to see what shape the place is in and whether more work is needed to make it habitable. Do a careFUl walKtHroUgH oF anY Unit YoU’re serioUs aBoUt. the best time to ask about repairs and improvements is before you commit. Attach a list of any damages to the lease, and have it initialed by your landlord so you’re not held responsible later. this is especially important in a college town. who knows who may have lived in the apartment before you! taKe measUrements. take measurements of your larger furnishings (and take along a tape measure) to see how your things will fit… or what things you’ll need to buy. Be realistic about the move. If you have a king-size waterbed, maybe the fourth floor isn’t the best spot for you.
AFTER YOU’VE FOUND IT: reaD YoUr lease tHoroUgHlY… and make sure you understand it. Don’t Be aFraiD to asK!
For eXamPle; • what utilities are you responsible for? • How is the television reception? • will you need cable? • Is there reference to existing wear or damage or a penalty for breaking the lease? • How does the management feel about subleases?
asK QUestions. the College Rentals Apartment tips & Checklist provides a thorough list of questions to ask. meet tHe neigHBors! will you live above or below someone; do you share walls? Knock on doors and introduce yourself. find out if neighbors are friendly, how they feel about noise, what they like about the neighborhood. this is a good person to ask about the safety of a neighborhood. landlords aren’t allowed to discuss such things, but your new neighbor will know if the place has bad lighting or a wild Rottweiler problem. Visit as manY Places as YoU can… so you’ll have a good idea of what your money buys. Use our Apartment Checklist as a guide to inspecting and comparing choices. then be prepared to ACt QUICKly when you find something you like! lots of complexes are on the internet. while you shouldn’t rely too heavily on the web, it is a good place to get started narrowing to a list of possibilities. Check out www.collegerentals.com.
enJoY. No apartment is going to be perfect; how much you enjoy where you live is largely up to you. Meet the people at the complex, and you’ll enjoy your living experience much more than if you stay indoors, drinking alone. Hang out at the pool. Play some basketball. throw a party. No matter how you feel about the physical space you occupy, new friends can make you feel right at home.
