My roommate moved to Seattle, and left her plant to my care..
My new roommate
But I can't care for it if I don't know what it is! It is small, light green with oval leaves which point toward the end. They are completely smooth. The only thing she told me is that it is a succulent. What is it? It seems to drink a lot more water than I thought it should.
Thank you for your help!

This is some type of Echeveria, Graptoveria, Graptopetalum, Sedeveria or other similar type plant. As they're all so closely related they inter breed and produce yet another lovely little succulent plant.
As evident by the length of the internodes (the space between the leaves) this plant is seriously light deprived.
Although it looks quite healthy, it's not in the ideal conditions for its best growth. My advice is to move it to an area that gets more light, or even invest in a grow light to make sure it gets enough.
For water, they will drink a lot if it's offered, but in their natural environment they prefer to be allowed to dry out between waterings.
Look for more information on succulent care here, and for more on similar plants see how to grow Echeveria.
Happy Succulent Growing!
