AM I GOING TO GET MESOTHELIOMA IN THE DORMS?

Dorm life can be incredibly fun, but is incredibly daunting, depending where you live.  If you live in a very old room, you might be worried about getting mesothelioma or something from the asbestos you imagine lives in the walls.

If you don't have a good college fund backing you up, or you want to be thrifty, the older dorms are often a small choice.   It's highly doubtful you'll ACTUALLY get some crazy disease like mesothelioma from anything in the walls.  you might get meningitis, but that's why you get immunizations before freshman year!  

The less flashy dorms are often the best choice, because they're simply cheaper, and you'll more than likely have an easier time getting into them.

But overall, a dorm room is what you make it.  Sure, my room may be haunted by the ghost of some former student named Rodrigo, have 'DEATH HELP' carved in huge letters in the door and have strange happenings all the time,  but that doesn't mean it can't be fun!

  9. I haven't decided yet on taking a dorm versus just renting an apartment yet, i mean with a dorm it's great to be on campus, but apartments with a couple roomates could save a lot of money... Oh well, i have a year to figure it out.

  11. One day my brother went back to his dorm and his roommate was gone, without a trace. No clothes, posters, or even bed sheets, he had packed up and left. A few days later the administration told him his roommate got meningitis...

    Thanks for the heads up.

  14. Feel like all dorms have been renovated to remove these, probably a law in most states even.

  18. Being a former R.A., I know we take all hauntings very seriously and do everything in our power to exercise all demons. As a former Ghost Buster I can tell you student dorm rooms have the highest haunt ratio than any other complex. Who you gonna call?

  26. I always found the inhabitants of dorm rooms were more of a worry than the room itself when it comes to disease...
