Supplement: Stanford - 5 Note to Future Roommate


Leo Choi

Virtually all of Stanford’s undergraduates live on campus. Write a note to your future roommate that reveals something about you or that will help your roommate – and us- know you better


Do not consider Sungwong Choi as normal. He may not be appropriate for the norms of the society, for he is aggressive, challenging, and fishy. Beware of,

The endless sound of strumming and picking of a guitar. He is well known for playing his guitar at any time of the day. If you hear someone overwhelmingly exerting his feelings into an instrument, it may be him. A possible solution for this hazard is to slip a note with your favorite song written down; you would earn some hours while he attempts to learn the new song.

A pile of uniforms, swimsuit, rackets, and other sports gear. He is rumored to be able to smell the chlorine of swimming pools 200 m away, and distinguish a football, basketball, and volleyball by scent. If you see a guy going crazy over every sport he plays, it is most likely him. Do not play against him alone; he gets extremely aggressive and competitive on one-on-one games.

Raps on mathematics and biology, along with beat-box. He is said to have terrorized a classroom once by performing the rap he and his mad friends wrote on statistics, which may begin like: double double randomize and don’t forget the sample size. If you hear anyone coarsely singing Mathmaticious, Krebs Cycle Song, U Can’t Graph This, and Math Bomb, it is definitely him. You may escape danger by asking him to sing the Element Song; he fails miserably every time, and will stop singing.

Refined hand gestures and excessive hip movement. This is the worst danger: he may be doing his Latin dance. Do not ever ask him to dance rumba or cha-cha-cha; he may grab your hand gracefully and without consent, and make your meal times miserable. Once he starts, he keeps turning and shaking hips like a snake. The only way to stop him is fried chicken. He loves fried chicken.

Keep these warnings in mind, and hopefully you’ll live through four years of wonderful time at Stanford.
