Tried and true, and so very sweet, this drink perfectly represents your ideal roommate. With various layers that you'll gradually uncover as the year goes on (like the layers of the drink you'll discover as you sip), the roommate might just become your new best friend. 

3. "The Fun Person" as the Strawberry Smoothie

Warm and inviting, this drink is just like your RA. You probably drank hot chocolate as a child after a cold day to feel better, and if you ever have a problem, talking to your RA might make you feel better too. They're there to help you and your peers.
