3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are currently about to be redone. Very tight community within the dorms yet very costly.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Howerton rooms are small and have mold. Davis rooms are bigger and cleaner, but the residents are louder.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Old but Acceptable – Dorm rooms were old with mold, rust spots, cracked windows, and old floors, but it did not really matter to me.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Definitely Needs Improvements – Just as we pay a lot for our meal plans, we pay a lot for our dorm rooms. Between mold growing in the room and shower, small living spaces, and extremely limited access to cooking/food options within the dorm, it is less than ideal. However, it is very nice that we have our own bathrooms (as in, we don't have communal hall showers like most dorms do) and it is also nice to be so close to the rest of campus.

Campus Housing: Dorms Are Okay, Plenty of Off Campus Options for Upperclassmen – The dorms have good water pressure, but are constantly plagued with mold/mildew issues. There are plenty of affordable off-campus housing options for juniors and seniors, since the campus doubles as a conference center in the summer/off-season weekends.

I lived for three years in the college apartments (exclusively girls) with three roommates and eight housemates. The Kentucky Road Apt.s are really nice and affordable, especially since the cafeteria food plan becomes optional. The apartments boast two washers and dryers for 12 girls and the "house-mom." two four-person apartments have two bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms (with shower/tub) a small kitchen (oven, sink, fridge, cabinets, table) a study room with desks, and a living space. There are two two-person apartments with living space, kitchen, bedroom and full bath. The Kentucky Road apartments provide comfortable, flexible, affordable living, and my roommates and I built a strong community amongst ourselves. The ample space allowed us to have friends over and offer the couch to out-of-town friends staying overnight.

The Kentucky Road apartments are also close to campus. Other off campus housing varies, though most are still close. The only issue to arise is the separation from dorm community- though, like I said, a smaller community is built within the house.

There are four dorms on campus: Anderson and McGregor (female), and Howerton and Davis (male). McGregor and Davis are the upperclassman dorms, though some underclassmen do live in them. All four dorms have socials, Bible studies, and convocations led by the RAs (resident assistants) and/or an RD (resident director). These range in topic and activity, from sex talks with a speaker to dinnertime games with the RAs. These are held both by floor and by the entire dorm, in addition to occasional mandatory dorm meetings and fire drills with the RAs and RD.

The housekeeping and maintenance teams are responsible for each dorm. Housekeeping cleans everything but the rooms, and maintenance is available upon request for leaky faucets, clogged sinks, or any other problems. Mold is an issue in some of the buildings, though measures are being taken by the administration to remove the problem. The dorms are all within an easy walking distance from every other building due to the small campus size, which is convenient for going to classes, chapel, and advising meetings. The room sizes vary by dorm, as do the bathrooms; for example, Anderson rooms all have private bathrooms, whereas Howerton has a mix of private and suite-style bathrooms for all of the rooms. Anderson is the most convenient for wheelchair accessibility, featuring both a ramp to the dorm door and an elevator within; it is one of three buildings on campus with an elevator, including the library and Belk Campus Center.
