A few days ago I got my room assignment. Instead of being in the freshman dorm like I'd thought, I was put in an upperclassmen dorm. At first I was a little bummed, but I got over it really fast.I was excited because online floorplans showed that each person in this dorm got their own room and just shared a bathroom. The RD said that it was because they had filled up the freshman dorm, and the remaining freshman were being placed in the upperclassmen dorm on the 2nd floor, and that there were 30 freshman. I'm on the 2nd floor with freshman and my roommate is a freshman. When I talked to her, she said that her advisor had told her that they were doubling the rooms and having 2 people in each bedroom with 4 people sharing a bathroom.
I had emailed my RD earlier to ask why I was in the upperclassmen dorm and he said that "your roommate is a freshman and so are your suitemates". I'm really upset. The upperclassmen dorms are much smaller than the freshman dorms because they were designed for only 1 person in the bedroom and 2 people to a bathroom. From the floorplan, it doesn't even look like there's enough room to comfortably fit 2 beds/desks/dressers into one of those rooms. I don't even understand where they're going to materialize the extras from anyways, if the housing is so full.
I know this is stupid. I just can't shake the disappointment and sadness that I feel everytime I think about my housing situation this fall. I don't know what to do. Not to mention that I'm an introverted, and I can't even spend days on end with my best freinds sleeping over at my house before little things start to get on my nerves and I just need alone time. I've thought about e-mailing the school and explaining that I'm transferring in as a junior, and that I'm not a freshman and seeing what they say, but I don't want to annoy or upset them.
