as long as you are socially competent, go with the single room. Trust me. After three years in college, I can't emphasize this enough: Get a single. Don't worry any problems with "making friends", since you WILL as long as you aren't incredibly weird.
A quad will SUCK, trust me. It is enough having to deal with one roommate either walking in drunk at 4am, f&cking his girlfriend with you in the room, and/or playing WoW/not showering for a week straight. Now imagine that with 3 roommates. It's a lot more sh&t to deal with, and the probability of all 4 of you getting along very well is exceedingly low.
