3 College Student

Campus Housing: First-year dorms are nothing to be excited over, but they're not terrible. The newer buildings that upperclassmen tend to live in, such as Pearl, are pretty nice.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the dorms that I've lived in there have been very few extra amenities. In order to get to class for most of them all that is required is to cross a road. Brockman and Pearl are wonderful. Pearl has the feel of a hotel while Brockman is pretty much a condo complex.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman (girl) dorms really aren't bad at all. They have plenty of space and even though the buildings might be a little old, they're still very functional and kept very clean. Nevin, which is a freshman boy's dorm is a total shit show. They put a lot of the freshman athletes in there and it frequently smells like booze and B.O., but that is because of the people who live there. Despite it's shambliness, it is something every Centre student should experience once. Depending on who your RA is, you can have a very negative or positive experience. My RA wasn't strict at all, so I never had any problems, but other friends of mine often got reported for being too noisy, although nothing serious happened with that. Old Quad is probably as bad as housing options get, but by your junior or senior year, housing isn't really an issue because most of those people by then get rooms in Pearl or Brockman which are much newer and nicer. Pearl almost reminds me of a nice hotel and Brockman commons are apartment style housing. The lottery system can suck if you get placed towards the end of the list, but at least it's fair. And if your roomie gets a better number than you, then you guys can just pick a room whenever they're called. So it all works out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As a first year, there aren't many choices but the dorms are fairly decent. They could be better, however, as you become an upperclassman you have more variety and luxurious options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus house keepers are the best. The dorms are shared between two people, the dorms are around $6,000 for two semesters. Wish the campus dorms had elevators. Centre college is a very old college, but the dorms are livable.

Campus housing is one of those experiences that everyone needs to have, and as they say, misery begets camaraderie. Suffering through early roommate wake-ups, fire drills, farm animal appearances on your hall, and breaking visitation rules are part of the college experience. You'll learn to either hate your RA's guts or, in what tends to be the norm, you'll love them and be best friends by the end of the first semester. Your freshman hallmates are also quintessential in defining your college experience, and you'll be friends with most of them throughout your four years. Centre's small size is beneficial to the close friendships that are created, especially during group all-nighters or cram sessions.

While it seems odd that such a large percentage of students live on campus, the reason is because everyone is required to, but the College compensates upperclassmen with sweet pads. Seniors and juniors commonly have facilities on par with what one could rent in Danville, but are on campus. The freshman dorms are a unique experience, especially Nevin which is a love-it, hate-it rite of passage for guys, but the girls' dorms tend to be more low-key and similar. Yerkes is an all-girls freshman dorm with larger halls than Cheek/Evans. Living on campus is the cool thing to do, and while the buildings aren't the Hilton, the atmosphere that Centre manages to create on each hall is very "college," as well as character-defining.
