Campus Housing: Theres really nothing good or bad about it. Just a solid place to live.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I believe that living on campus will be awesome!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like everything except for the cost of tuition in this school.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Although the rooms are on the small side, they are comfortable. The RAs make every effort to reach out to all students and have social gatherings as a floor. The bathrooms are clean and large enough for the number of students. Most dorms are close to classes and the dining halls.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the freshman dorm environment!

Full-time students are required to live on campus, unless they are married, have significant health concerns, or commute from their parents' home. This policy keeps several hundred students within 150 acres of each other and lends itself to a closer campus community. All dorms are single sex. The divide is emphasized during freshman orientation activities like South of the Border-a Mexican theme outdoor dance on the guy's side of campus-and Northern Hospitality-a semi-formal dance on the girl's side. Inter-visitation hours are designated weekend hours when friends of the opposite sex can cross those borders and mingle or relax in a friend's dorm room. The rules of inter-visitation (door left partly open and light always on) are enforced by student residential advisors. However, Hopeman Hall has been nicknamed "Hopeman Hotel" for its behind-the-scenes female visitors.

Freshman women can expect to land in North Hall, a part of the larger MAP (Mary Anderson Pew) Dormitory. When most girls see their rooms, they wonder how they'll ever fit all their stuff-never mind their roommates'-into the cramed space. But after the necessary hours of rearrangement, they usually find all the niches they need. Memorial is the newest dormitory and serves 70 percent of the freshman men. Memorial guys live it up in their comfy lounges-big-screen TVs and leather couches-all included. MAP residents also enjoy heading over to breakfast without ever leaving the building. Many sophomore and junior women end up in Harker or MEP (Mary Ethel Pew) dormitories. Harker is closer to the heart of campus, but has inconvenient storage space and not-so-sound-proof walls. Male upperclassmen have a choice between Ketler, Alumni, Lincoln, Hopeman, and Hicks. Fraternities and independent housing groups hold designated halls in several of these dorms. Parts of Alumni, Hopeman, and Hicks appeal to a wilder party crowd. Overall, dorms are somewhat aged, which inevitably leads to plenty of maintenance needs and lots of umm, character.
