I'm a sophomore in college and I decided to live in my sorority house this year thinking it was a good idea (I have been here for a total of 3 days). Now that I'm here, I feel like I won't be able to focus on school because I'll be so involved with the sorority. School is already hard for me so that's why I'm considering moving out. Also I absolutely love my roommate but some of the other girls in the house are rude, and insecure so they put others down to make themselves feel better which drives me nuts. I would be able to move into an apartment closer to the school if I were to move out and have my own room, but I wouldn't know my roommate. I'm really conflicted on what to do so I'd really like to get your opinion. Thanks!

Your education is more important. With the cost of school these days, I would expect this to be an easier decision. You're there to get your education, not to have to deal with rude people who are so insecure they have to put others down in order to raise their self-esteem. You don't need that. Nobody needs that in their life, but you especially don't need it. You need to be focused on getting to your classes, studying your case loads or whatever major you've decided on, and put all that other nonsense to the way-side. True, you won't know your roommate, but as the saying goes... a stranger is just a friend you've not yet gotten to know. Bottom line.3

There should be a third option but between the two I say stay. Three days is nothing, if you're in a good sorority they will hold you accountable for grades.
You just need to settle into a routine. Maybe don't study at the house. I never studied at home. My college had one of the best gyms in the country so I always hit the gym up and library up in one block of 5 hours or so. If I was going out later it would be library then gym. If I was going home after it would by gym then the library I post gym suit that I could sleep in when I got home late at library closing.
Stay it out maybe find a library buddy even but sit apart. Just take study breaks for coffee together or whatever. I honestly think by the end of the year you will be so glad you stayed.2
