Congratulations!! I am so excited you will be coming to APU next year, this is such a crazy season for you full of unknowns and anticipation but it is such a fun place to be!
This is such a great question! I will actually be a freshman RA in the fall so I am excited to answer this for you the best I can! As far as a roommate goes, if you are paired randomly, know that God has already hand-picked exactly who your roommate will be and that He has such purpose in who He has placed you with. Allow yourself to be surprised by the relationships that will inevitably form. Things will be different than you expected, and that is okay. Embrace where you are placed and the people God has chosen to journey alongside you through this new chapter that has already begun.
As far as the dorms themselves, there are four Residence Halls and you can read more about them and even see pictures of each Residence Hall here. Each Residence Hall is so unique and has its own personality but regardless it will be your experience, and it is what you make it! Regarding preparation in coming to APU, specifically with dorms, APU actually has a Pinterest you can find here where they have a board For the Future Cougars with helpful links for decorating ideas and information that is useful!
If you have any additional questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask! We are so happy to help in any way we can!
