5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved being able to be involved in many clubs and activities. Its great to live on campus your first years to really get the college experience!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Clean dorms, good people living in them. Great supervisors, extremely friendly. Still dorm life though

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Bad, Ok, Nice – One thing that I like about the housing is that they are segregated dorms. This gives a comfortable and homelike atmosphere to the dorms. We all feel more comfortable in our dorms, all living as sisters. There are three girls dorms on campus. I have lived in two of them. Sutton is the oldest and in need of much repair. It has a few suites but it also has single rooms. It needs to be gutted and redone. It was a great dorm in its time, but now it is inadequate in the plumbing, space and quality. It has also caused a lot of people allergy problems. I moved from Sutton to Hinley. It is a three story dorm that is fairly new. The suites consist of two rooms and a shared closet/bathroom area. It is also in need of repair. Things like hot water and laundry rooms need to be updated so that we can all count on them. I like the rooms themselves. They are pretty spacious, but they are dorm rooms. Not a mansion. Terrace is the newest girls dorm. It's suites are much bigger. They consist of two bedrooms, a bathroom and a common room. They are very clean and nice. Not very homy, but very nice.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Barn or a Hotel – Sutton Hall is smelly, dirty, and drafty. I know girls that got sick for years from living there. I have heard stories of opossums living in the closets. It is really, really bad. That said, it is really fun to explore.

Hinely Hall is the freshman dorm. There is a lot of storage, which is great, but none of the furniture can be rearranged.

Terrace Hall is for Sophomores and up. It is almost brand new, very clean, and has great laundry and workout facilities. It is also closer to the boys dorms. There is very little storage space though.

Housing options at FC vary depending on the age or year of the student. Freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus, unless they have reached 21 years of age or have been out of high school for more than two years. Upper-division students have their choice of living on or off campus and receive special benefits, such as no curfew and a private room at the same cost as living with a roommate (should they choose dorm life). FC's four dorms differ in age, space, and cost, as well as personality. The biggest and most expensive of the dorms, Boswell (the men's dorm) and Terrace (one of the three women's dorms), were finished in 2008 and are both divided into suites. Each suite has two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a common room. Hinely, another women's dorm, is also divided into suites which include two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a large closet. The oldest building on campus, Sutton Hall, is also the cheapest and smallest of the dorm options for women. Each room in Sutton comes with a small private bathroom and closet, moveable furniture, and its own personality. All of the dorms are equipped with laundry rooms, while both Terrace and Boswell also include a weight room and kitchen.

While living in an apartment has its benefits of more space and freedom, as well as the ability to cook one's own food, on-campus life has its own advantages, too. Living in the dorms allows students more opportunities to interact with each other on a deeper level of intimacy, with less necessity for a personal vehicle, and shorter distances to run to get to class when sleeping through the alarm.
