3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Sure the dorms cost a lot and are pretty small (although I'm living in the "low" cost one) but the social atmosphere is great. I only entered here for the Spring Semester but I have already made a ton of new friends. I'm actually going to miss living so close to my class next semester on. The worst thing about my dorm could be the communal bathrooms but aren't most communal bathrooms not too enjoyable? The best part is that my dorm is in proximity to everything, from buses to dining halls, it is somewhat in the center of UGA.

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms as a freshman is great because of the social life, but they're really expensive and small and most of them are old. Most people live off campus after freshman year because it is a much better value.

Each hall has an RA whose two sole purposes in life are to answer any questions residents have, and to try to keep order in the building-neither being an easy task. Each hall has its own parties and socials every so often, and there is definitely a sense of community within every hall. And, get this-the bathrooms are usually very clean, except during football game weekends. One time, a bathroom in Creswell was shut down because it had become a biological hazard over one weekend, which is gross, but it was up and running by Monday. The maintenance staff in the dorms are very nice, as well. All the dorms now have air-conditioning. If you are lucky enough to have an individual unit in your room, like Creswell residents for example, count your blessings. The dorms with central air are usually on the warm side. You can open your windows, but this does not always help.

The Myers, Rutherford, and Mary Lyndon quad is a very popular place to hang out and play ultimate Frisbee. Even before renovations, Myers was a very popular dorm. It is also close to Snelling, which is a big plus. If you live in an all-female dorm, especially Brumby, it can seem to be overrun with sorority girls at times. Many people complain that they feel like they are the only girls on campus who didn't rush. The East Campus Village was designed to resemble apartments in an effort to keep students on campus. They offer 1,200 beds, and preference is given to students who have spent the most time in a dorm.
