Is there currently a college dorm survival guide? Answered

What materials, skills, or requirements are essential to successfully live in a relatively spacious college dorm.


Probably not - but you could make one! Clean/organized do not guarantee survival - but they make life easier for spur of the moment projects, studying, partying, cooking, etc - having to clean before you cook etc sucks. establish rules with housemates regarding essentials like food, money, cleaning, spare time 'areas' and their usage at what times...etc. I won't suggest anything specific - but you must have ground rules like "stealing my food will cause you to die". and many many more... have a repertoire of pranks ready for the onslaught of little stuff that will happen...

Always keep some silly string on hand for that last part.
