4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As a freshman, it's awesome. The dorms are like hotel rooms, it's upperclass when the dorms get bad....

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are some dorms that are not fantastic and the rules against off-campus living are far too strict. There are plenty of decent housing options on campus, however, and the campus owned apartments and the Barnett Community (only for freshmen right now) are fantastic.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is alright; it is relatively expensive compared to the value of the rooms. The community with other residents is great though. First year students live in great dorms while the upper classmen are left with the poor quality rooms. The policies for on campus life are unfortunate as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: You have your good and bad sides. Depends on what you expect of housing and who you live with. Chose your room mate wisely, for it will make all the difference.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay, there are new dorms which are awesome

The dorms are clean, and most of the rooms are spacious. The amount of free space in a room depends on the layout of the furniture. Students have the option of bunking beds, which some students do, especially in rooms with more than two people. There is a cleaning staff that cleans each day, so the dorms are well maintained. Some halls are known to be better than others.

Nicholas and Wesley are the newest dorms, so they are the freshest. Spivey and Joseph-Reynolds are in the center of campus, so they are close to every building. All of the other dorms are clumped on one side of campus, so some classes can be a longer distance to walk. However, because of the size of the campus, it is not an uncomfortable distance. Overall, all of the halls are different, so there are varying levels of closeness. Some halls have students that leave their doors open to their neighbors all of the time, while other students barely know the students next door. Most group socializing within the dorms takes place in the lobbies. Some meetings are held here, or even just groups of friends watching TV together.

Warning! Students are not allowed to put nails in the walls, except for on a designated strip. However, be careful when choosing sticky strips to hang up pictures, posters, and bulletin boards. The paint peels very easily off the walls!
