3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm buildings could be more up to date, but overall, the campus is a great, friendly atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For as old as the college is, the campus does not show it. The residence halls and academic halls are all kept up and provide a nice space to live and learn.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: There are not as many rooming options as bigger colleges.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Old, out of date. Either too hot or too cold. Small living, with out of date appliances. Very poor.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Freshman year you don't even get a choice, but its kind of cool to live with all freshman. After that you get some choice but the fraternities are still owned by albion which sucks.

Albion's living situations can be pretty dismal at first. Freshmen are limited to Wesley and Seaton. Some say that Seaton is better because the rooms seem bigger due to newer, stackable furniture, and it's closer to everything on campus. With Wesley, you're farther away from everything, but you will be living with almost all first-years. This can be a good thing, as you'll get to know the people in your own class better. Sophomore year, there are more options, like Mitchell and Whitehouse, although you'll probably be lucky to get into Whitehouse if you aren't a junior or senior. After sophomore year, you pretty much have your pick of where you want to live.

The dorm and room you get are decided by a room lottery where you will get assigned a number. Then, you and your chosen roommate will combine them to get your room lottery number and, thus, your fate. The lower the number, the better chance you have of getting into the dorm you want. Sometimes it just depends on luck.
