4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Though the dorms aren't the best physically, it has been amazing. All of the rooms come with their own AC's, are pretty spacious, and the community is amazing. There aren't really any assholes.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really love living here, it's my second home. I never feel uncomfortable. For the most part, everyone is super friendly and it's pretty easy to get involved in anything.

4 College Freshman

3 College Sophomore

The dorms at Wesleyan are spacious and accommodating but hardly luxurious. Rooms range from cramped freshman dorms to spacious one-person suites. A number of suites offer high ceilings and large windows, but just as many rooms have small windows and close quarters. The Harriet House resembles an apartment complex and is the envy of on-campus residents, but it also costs more to live there. The absolute worst is the three-block walk from Martin Hall. If the dorms have a redeeming quality, it can be found in the lounge, fireplace, study area, or recreation room. Every dorm has some sort of common area, all have comfortable chairs and a TV, and some even have a fireplace. These touches make even the most cramped dorm seem a little more like home. Student housing at Wesleyan is always an issue but never a problem.

The small halls are an underrated alternative to standard dorm life and foster community attitudes uncharacteristic of larger dorms. It's fun meeting the people in your hall and making new friendships as the year progresses. In larger dorms, it can be difficult to meet or even recognize residents. Unfortunately for residents of larger halls, any damage done to the building is split up among residents. This means one drunk with a weak bladder could ruin a lot of furniture for everyone else. Generally, students spend enough time on campus, in the library, or anywhere else besides their room, that the size of the room and condition of the amenities are of less significance.
