College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I currently do not live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My only complaints are that...

1) RA's aren't very strict. This can be nice, but when it's finals week and people are screaming in the halls at 3am you'll long for a little discipline.

2) Communal showers/bathrooms. Not all halls have them, but if you're unlucky enough to get one that does be prepared.

3) Sometimes the school decides it isn't going to turn the AC on and leaves you to roast. My solution to this has been to leave my window and mini-fridge open. You could also just leave your room and go somewhere where there is AC.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Depending on the hall you get, it could be comfortably spacious, or scarily claustrophobic.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I have always been a commuter.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Some of the Freshman dorms are alright. I like that after Freshman year the dorm situation is not like a typical campus. The Newest dorm has so many issues, and isn't fully ready for living. Every year since it's been open, people have had to live in a hotel. It is very inconvenient! Each building has it's own grade. There isn't anything consistent across the board.

Shenandoah University's housing facilities are very lively places to live. Students live in dorms with all new people and soon become friends. The dorms are all cleaned before and after new students arrive or leave. Some dorms are smaller than others on campus, but there are ways to rearrange the rooms to make them seem bigger; for example, bunking beds is a popular technique. The most spacious freshman dorm on campus would be Parker Hall, while the cleanest residence hall for freshmen would be Racey Hall because it is the most recently updated.

In terms of campus proximity, all dorms are located in the middle of campus. They all surround dining areas and buildings where students go to classes. In other words, where a student lives is convenient for getting to classes on time every day. The social environment is just as perfect for students who get homesick. When living in a quad or suite and sharing bathrooms with people, a person becomes very acquainted. Dorm life is the best way to interact and make new friends because a new student will see the same people every day. People in dorms occasionally get together and participate in on- and off-campus activities, like movie nights in dorm rooms or bowling.
