When Simon Choi and Pat Lueg met as freshmen, they realized they had a lot in common: they both love fitness, team sports and meditation. “Something just clicked,” Lueg recalls, and the two decided to share a room in Chapin Hall the next year. But now, as the Weinberg College roommates dive deeply into their individual interests, they’re finding that hang-out time is at a premium. Fortunately, they’ve set up their space to facilitate stress-relieving fun: playing video games, watching movies and socializing with friends on their comfortable, faux-leather couch.
