How is it to dorm with random roommates in college?

Hello. It is almost time for me to attend college as a freshman. I always have a problem that I am struggling with inside myself. Is it fun and okay to dorm with people that I completely don't know at first? I am a guy by the way. Because I am a person who really wants to experience the fun of college, which means dorming is part of it. But the college that I am going does not have my friends there, therefore, is it acceptable and fun to dorm with people you don't know in college? Is it better than dorming with your old friends, or is it worse?

My nephew went to college not knowing anyone. Many people do. He moved put of the dorms with the same roommates and got an apartment.

Most people end up making great lifelong friends with their roommates. There is the occasional odd person, but you'll be making lots of new friends.

It is a great experience and is a good way to make new friends. It also gives you time to learn about the other person. Maybe even become very close friends with them.
