  • Have you wiped down every surface?
  • Did you vacuüm or sweep your floor?
  • Are the mirrors and windows clean?

  • Sex?
  • Alcohol?

  • Do you have a plan to give them a tour of places you hang out, have classes in, go to study, etc.?
  • Do you have tickets for something related to your college like a sports event or on campus event?
  • Are you going to introduce them to a few of your friends?

Don’t ask them to do your laundry, clean your room or give you money unless they offer!
