Perhaps one of the most jarring changes college presents to young students is that they must learn to deal with a roommate. With all that newfound independence, it can be difficult coming to terms with living in close quarters with someone else.
Moving in with someone during the first year of college usually comes with good and bad memories. Sometimes people become best friends with their roommate or grow to be worst enemies. One VCU student said his roommate experience nearly ruined his first year of college.
VCU freshman Hobie Dunston Kopczynski, 18, died on Sunday, March 30, and police have ruled his death a suicide.
