What do you do? These are just some of the issues Harlan Cohen addressed in his best-selling book, The Naked Roommate and 107 Other Issues You Might Run Into in College.   For answers to questions that range from roommates to relationships and Greek life to laundry, join us on Twitter, Wednesday evening at 9 PM Eastern on #CampusChat.
