I'm not saying that's his thing, but it could be.

nope - smaller high school though.
And about the possibility that he's depressed...it's always out there. However, I think if he even is depressed, it's because his gf goes to school 3000 miles away - not because of any family issues.
His gf told me his dad passed away when he was 5, but that he and his family were never that close to his father so it wasn't a total travesty. Also, he came to BU early decision, so he could get as far away as he can from home. His gf was supposed to wind up at Tufts, Wellsley or BU, but got turned down by all of them, so she's out west.
My guess is that he is not depressed though, because he still didn't talk when his gf was here. He was smiling more often, but that was the only noticable change. When my parents came to visit that weekend (it was parent's weekend), his gf talked to them while he just blankly stared at them, even when they asked him questions.

This evening, the RA took whoever wasn't at a meeting, on a date, in class, w/e to Pizzeria Uno's. A few of my friends, some other people and myself went (a little less than half the floor). I ALMOST got my roomate to go.
All afternoon, I tried to subtly egg him on to go (like "I'm really in the mood for pizza...u?"! "Have you ever been to Uno's before?", etc.). The most encouaging answer I got was a "umm.......maybe", though he was looking away. When push came to shove though, he said he didn't feel like going, and presumed to shut the door a few minutes after I left the room and probably stayed there.
I think he's a lost cause.
P.S. I realized most of my floor does not know who my roommate is, so they're asking for standing tours of my room (they just stand a few steps in the room cuz there's not much space) in hopes of seeing him and perhaps introducing themselves to him if he's there. And my friend reminded the RA that he believes the "my roommate = really an axe murderer" theory.
