To continue with last week’s topic on stereotypes of student living, we would like to explore, more in-depth, the question of whether students are dirty. A common perception is that student homes are dusty and cluttered. It is often believed that students neglect common duties such as vacuuming, doing the dishes, and all other household chores that were once required of them when living under their parents’ roof and watchful eyes. Do you think this is really true? Or, perhaps students take the opportunity of living away from their homes to grow and flourish into independent adults with immaculate housekeeping skills. What do you think? Can you relate to this?
What are your cleaning habits like? Do you have a cleaning schedule? Know of any student home horror stories? Please share your experiences with us by sending your stories and pictures of your very clean or, alternatively, very dirty student house to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will post the responses in a few days, and submissions can remain anonymous. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
