It’s not too late to find a roommate

Still looking for a place to live for the next semester or someone to live with? Are you worried you might have to live out of your car or (gasp) with your parents? CSU’s Off-Campus Life has got you covered.

Wednesday at 5 p.m. in the Lory Student Center room 208 is Roommate Round-up, a place to find somewhere to live or someone to live with. This is an opportunity to meet people, gather information and interview participants to find a good roommate match, according to a press release.

At Roommate Round-up, people with places to live wear green nametags and people looking for somewhere to live wear red nametags. Those who attend then look for the appropriately colored nametag and start talking.

Scratch paper and other handouts will be available.
