The dorms are very clean. Each person is responsible for his or her own room. For the dorms, there is a housekeeper that cleans the bathrooms and vacuums the carpets in the hallways and lounges. The housekeeper will not come into the students’ rooms to clean up the mess, the same for Edgewood Commons. The whole building is maintained by a crew, but they will not come into individual rooms to clean. The dorm rooms vary in size. Upperclassmen have the option of having a single room; however, most freshmen and sophomores live with at least one roommate. Some dorms offer triple rooms, but the majority of dorm rooms is doubles.
All of the dorms are very close to students' classes. Sowers Hall (dorm for STEM students) is very close to Compton Science Center because bulks of these students’ classes are in this building. As for the other dorms, they are still very close to all of the buildings. Edgewood Commons is not very close to the classrooms at all. However, there is an FSU shuttle that goes from Edgewood to different stops on campus. This helps Edgewood Commons students get to class on time if they do not have a car. The environment of living in a dorm on campus is a very different experience. All students bring some sort of outdoor activity (Frisbee, football, baseball, etc.) to amuse themselves when it gets nice out. Regardless of who you know on campus, if someone is outside playing, then anyone and everyone can join in. The students enjoy making new friends, so they do not mind including complete strangers in their outdoor activities.
