Roommate Bucket List (with Ellio’s Pizza!)

My friend Kelly has been my roommate for all of my college years. We’ve done a lot together, which is why I can’t bear the thought of us parting ways after this year. If you love your roommate, I think it’s important to make sure you experience as many fun things with them as you can. Kelly and I got through the awkward freshman years; now we’re 21 and ready for an amazing senior year. Even though this is just our second year living with our other roommate Jess in our 3 bedroom apartment, she fit perfectly within our duo and I couldn’t imagine the past year without either of them! 

The best part is that they’re both always down to have fun. And I thought that since this year will be my (and Kelly’s!) last, we should really go out with a bang. Here’s our roommate bucket list for our last year in undergrad!

Monthly game and pizza night.

Obviously they would never say no to a game night (we love Scrabble) but if I throw in pizza, I know I can count on the roomies to be there! Ellio’s Pizza is great because it’s something all three of us grew up eating. We love the pizza but we also love the nostalgia that comes with eating Ellio’s! It’s also super convenient so we can spend more time chatting and playing games instead of cooking.

Ellio’s Pizza uses only the freshest ingredients (with 100% real cheese and no artificial flavors) so we don’t have to feel guilty eating it either! Kelly, Jess and I have the same preference when it comes to pizza but it’s good to know that it comes in a variety of delicious flavors: Cheese, Pepperoni, Supreme, Five Cheese, Italian Sausage & Pepperoni, & Extra Cheese! Check out the store locator to see where you can get Ellio’s near you!

Try new bars and restaurants in the city at least 3 times during each semester.

I think this is probably going to be easy because we’re all huge foodies. And now that Kelly and I are 21, we’re always down to check out new bars!

Finish a show on Netflix together.

Kelly and I have watched shows together in the past, but I don’t think we’ve all finished a show together! This year, we definitely need to do that.

Throw a Halloween Party.

This is sort of cheating because we did this last year, but we seriously loved throwing a Halloween party with all of our friends and want to do it again this year!

Football games, football games, football games.

I’d love to be able to attend more football games with my roomies this year!

Who doesn’t love game night and Ellio’s?!

For decades Ellio’s and Hasbro have been bringing families together to share smile after smile, and there’s no end in sight. Ellio’s and Hasbro are teaming up for a really awesome giveaway, which means you could win free Ellio’s Pizza, or tons of fun family games (that you could definitely play with your roomies on game night)!

  • Have a monthly game night is such a great idea! I’m a big board/card game fanatic, so that is right up my alley! Good luck with all of the things on your list!!

  • How fun! I’m a high school senior and I’m definitely excited to have a roommate next year!


  • My roommates and I threw a Halloween party at our apartment my senior year and it was the best! I wish I knew more people where I live now so my boyfriend and I could host one! Also, a monthly game and pizza night sounds like something I could get behind for sure!

  • Love that you’ve kept close to your same roommate all through college! I always fell out with mine :( have fun!

  • Greta Hollar

    How fun! I’m still close with my roommate’s from college. They’re the best!

    Awe I love this. I live alone now (thankfully… not a lot of great roomies in the world) but this makes me think back to college and the few roommates I was close to. I love the idea of watching a Netflix show together. My roommate and I used to watch The Hills…I’m old now wow.

    Such a fun post! I definitely have to try monthly games with my roommates!
