5 College Junior

Campus Housing: You get to live in a beautiful new England home as a freshman. Our new dorms are all sustainable and run off of a boiler system and boast composting toilets. The other homes are older, but beautiful and each carry their own unique feel. The social atmosphere is so nice because everyone is so close to each other and can interact at all the activities, but still find time to be to themselves if they need it.

Campus Housing: The quality of campus housing can vary distinctly depending on housing assignments. While they all have perks and downsides, the larger housing options are often less desirable. Overall however, the housing is better than many larger schools.

Campus Housing: Students have the option to live in a larger dorm or in a small house. People get to know each other really well and there is a great on-campus community. Every Sunday night Community Dinners happen in houses on-campus for residents to cook together, talk over issues and for RA's and residents to get to know each other.

Campus Housing: Sustainable, and Everyone Gets a Kitchen – The new dorms are eco-friendly, I don't even totally understand how they work in terms of heating and things like that, but they have compostable toilets and are made from recycled materials. All the toilets are low-flow toilets in the other dorms. Every dorm feels like a house. The largest, Seafox, houses 20something people and has one kitchen, but all the other dorms have kitchens shared by about 8 people each. I can't imagine people at other schools who don't have kitchens! There is no cable TV or anything like that, but there is WiFi and a media center in the new dorms with a big TV that people can hook up video games to. It's a bit expensive, and after your first year you enter a housing lottery and may not get your first choice dorm, but living on campus is really fun. It's convenient but since the school is so close to town, there are other options available, as well.

Campus Housing: Campus Restrooms – There are many composting toilets in the new Student Housing and Deering Common center. They are awesome! They don't waste clean water. Also very peaceful, and fantastic views of Frenchmen's Bay right out the window. I try to make a contribution whenever possible. Some of the older bathrooms on campus are not as cool or handicap accessible...
