1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm halls here are awful and disgusting. Its kind of ridiculous for the money it costs to go here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's really not bad at all, in fact they're really nice! but the all girls dorm isn't that great and the pricing is ridiculous.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are fairly nice, but it depends which building you live in.

The on-campus housing leaves something to be desired. There are problems with mold, mildew, and the age of some of the buildings. Some students seriously mistreat the buildings and seem to have no regard for responsibility. There are plans to build better dorms, and there are always things being done to improve the ones already here. The thing to remember is that the rooms are small, but with careful furniture management and roommate cooperation, it can be a decent place to live.

The hardest thing is finding a roommate that has a compatible personality. There is a small personality test, but it doesn't do much. The University does offer a move-out period for situations that require it. A good way to tell if it will work out with a roommate is if you go to sleep at similar times. If you don't, it can be seriously annoying. Most on campus go to sleep by 2 a.m. It is important to notice this when adapting efficiently to college life and those 8 a.m. classes. Other than all of that, the rooms will be annoying, but planning furniture placement and having good roommates can make it an enjoyable environment.
