“Speed Rommate-ing and Experienced Renter Panel” The Tenant Union hosts this event in order to help students determine what “type” of roommate they want. Experienced student renters share their stories and roommate experiences and participants get to ask questions followed by a fun interactive event similar to speed dating!
