2 College Junior

Campus Housing: One of the dorm buildings is literally 100 years old and has not been fully renovated. Many of the windows in the building do not open and we are only allowed to use one set of doors. Some of the rooms are very small (literally only enough room for a bed and desk).

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Old to fairly new buildings. Moore Hall is the newest addition but the rooms are still very small, not your typical college dorm rooms.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live on campus determines the enjoyment. It also depends on the person. Constant socializing activities in the dorms which helps relieve general stress after midterms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but many of my friends do. There are three residence halls which are very nice. The campus is small so you can easily walk to class, the dining hall, theater etc... The college offers weekly activities for residents including special events, movies, games, etc..

Living on campus is one of the great things about Cedar Crest. The residence halls are neat and well-maintained, and all of them are central to academic buildings and everything else that you need on campus. Residence Life hosts many events throughout the semester, and residence halls can become great communities as the semester progresses. Students often convene in the hall lounges to watch TV, play games, do homework, or just hang out.

The RAs are a great resource to the community and often organize events in the halls. They are there to help students with any problems they have in adjusting to life in the residence halls, and they answer questions, provide guidance, and serve as a resource for students who are new to Cedar Crest.
