What Will You Do To Be A Good Neighbor?

Congratulations, you have gained 58 new neighbors! Before you go crazy trying to live with all these new people, try these ideas to make this school year a breeze.

Posted on

1. Say hi

You're living next to these people for a year, it won't kill you to acknowledge each other.

2. Don't slam doors

When the windows are open, the doors will slam and everyone in the hall will hear.

3. 24 hour courtesy hours

Even though quiet hours are from 10 pm - 8 am, we have 24 hour courtesy hours. Please be respectful when blasting your music or laughing loud. You never know who is napping...I mean studying.

4. Clean up after yourself

If you spill, clean it up. Sue (our custodian), me, your friends and your neighbors are not your guardians. Own your mess and clean it up. (If you need supplies to clean it up, I can help you out.)

5. Respect boundaries

Don't go into someone's room without permission. If someone ask you to leave to study or go to bed, be understanding.

6. Respect one another

Treat others the way they would like to be treated. It's as simple as that.

7. Hold each other accountable

If someone says they'll do something, make sure they do it!

8. Talk it out

Being passive aggressive may lead to escalated situations. If you have an issue, say something in person - not to someone else or over social media. (Use your RA for help if you need it)

9. Be open minded

Everyone comes from a different background and has their own story. Before you judge, get to know someone else. Try something new!

10. Assume good intent

Before you jump to conclusions, assume the person has the best interest in mind.
