Overall thoughts on our findings • I discovered that people are mostly happy with the policy and the maintenance of the dorm halls. Yet they still have some conflicts with roommates. The policy might have a gap with the roommate policy or the R.A.s are not enforcing the roommate policy well enough. These students should be able to have a way of settling problems with their roommates that is set in the policys.
