Subletting rooms and apartments is a hot topic, especially as Spring and Summer terms draw near. Before you decide to sublet, make sure to read your lease and check with your landlord to find out if you are allowed to sublet your space, and get details on any guidelines or restrictions for the process.
You will also want to talk with your roommates about this decision. They may have an opinion about potential summer roommates or may already have a roommate in mind. Perhaps they, too, would like to sublet their space for the summer months.

“What’s the point of the Census?”, you may be asking. Well, the Census has many functions, but one of the main functions is to count the total population of all persons currently residing in the U.S. This count is then used to determine how many representatives each state should have in the House of Representatives, and also helps to decide how billions of dollars in federal funding for local communities will be allocated. Beyond that, the Census is also one of the most critical reference tools in understanding the demographic make-up of the country.
