This is a very short post.
My daughter told me a story yesterday she'd never told before. At her college there was one small dorm that only housed 60 people. One year, the student in charge of assigning students to dorms assigned only students named Sarah to that dorm.
At first blush it sounds pretty funny, but when the Sarahs realized what had happened they were not pleased and the student who'd made the assignments lost her job. Apparently she wasn't identified and got another student job. I can imagine it made things fairly complicated. And for some reason it was too late to make any changes without disturbing other students.
I imagine there were students in other dorms who would have traded roommates. What would it have been like to be the only non-Sarah in the building? I wonder if anyone ever followed up with that group later to see what their year was like and what lessons they learned from it. This is a social experiment just waiting to be studied.
