SWCers note: If you need a roommate, the Commons list for convention goers will start up approximately a month before the convention starts. All those who have registered for the convention will be placed on this list unless you let Chelle or Donna know otherwise. Commons is the place where people can look for roommates, a buddy to hang out with, as well as discuss group activities.
