3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms could have been built better

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: While my building was the oldest of the residence halls, I loved the feeling of community we had. We did a lot of events and it created a lot of friendships and even a few relationships.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: i currently live off campus, but walking distance to school.

i lived off campus in the dorms 1 semester and it was a horrible experience. very small and uncomfortable, being a foster youth, i did not have parents to visit, the dorms were closed in the holiday breaks and i had to move out. i didn't have a place so decided to live off campus since.

Only students who are incredibly easy to please like the dorms. Sac State dorms are, like one of the surveyed students said, "some of the worst dorms in the Cal State system." They're small, old, and the facilities are run-down. Sharing a bathroom with your whole floor is simply not fun for most people, especially when some of them do more than just pee. It's not much better when it comes to other hygiene issues, either. If one person gets sick, that's it for the whole dorm because everyone's so close to each other. For a school with so many undergrads, it's surprising that there are only five three-story dorms to accommodate them. But then again, Sac State was designed to be a commuter school, so not as much attention is paid to dorm quality.

The major saving grace for students is the social atmosphere. Meeting people and making new friends is worth the experience, or almost worth it, at least. Small rooms that are close together are breeding grounds for noise pollution, though. If you like quiet time to study and you live on campus, be prepared to make frequent use of the library.
