"It's awful," she said. "My roommate's fitend' sleeps

On the other hand, some students unexpectedly find
emnselves without any roommate at all. LSA freshman

"Of course, cohabitation has economic benefits,"
mock said, referring to the fact that two people can live
nore cheaply together than apart. But the economic fac-
or is usually not enough to convince students to move
"A very important, difference (between college cohab-
ors and older colsabitors) is that students .are generally
not yet economically independent," Smock said.
Some students have personal reasons for signing sepa-
rate leases. "You don't want to be stuck in a situation
where you have a fight and are stuck in close quarters
and have no choice," Bergrin said.
"One 'cost' of cohabitation for college students is that
it is easier to end a dating relationship than a cohabita-
tional relationship. So, the emotional toll can be much,
much higher (if the relationship ends) than just dating,"
Sleeping over "doesn't make it this huge commit-

Jain and Patel also said they appreciated having their

LSA senior Lauren Renard said it wouldn't have
made sense for her to move in with her former
boyfriend. "College is an age where you're doing a lot

The proposal's release to Harper

Harper also said that the report is

said in a written statement.
Hower said University-sponsored
events are only an alternative and

in Ann Arbor," she said.

that will steer students toward sub-

But LSA junior Sarra Olson said
"This tos. is not meant for peo-
ple under 21. There's nothing for us
to do but go to house parties,"
Olson also said University pro-
gramming won't deter underaged
drinking. "If students want to party,
they're gonna party" she said.
"If the University had started at
the very beginning of the year with

is simply illegal for those under 21.
"That's like telling a bank robber

"It's not our job to come up with
alternatives to underage drinking.
Underage drinking is against the
