3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Okay, so if you live on the West side of campus, where all the old dorms are, chances are you're going to really dislike your housing experience, like me. The old dorms are on the historical registry so the school literally cannot renovate them to make them actually livable, yet students are still allowed to live there. In my opinion, the safety of students WAY out ranks the preservation of an old dorm. Anderson Hall, Grossmont, Fairmont, Bekins, and Holt all do NOT have air conditioning, proper heating, and other standards of safety are set way low due to their age. And the kicker is that we all pay upwards of $12,000 if you live in a double. I live in Anderson, the largest dorm on campus. There are 200 students living there. So if every students paid around 12,000 that's over $2,000,000 we pay the school each year to not at least have an upgraded electrical system so we can have window air conditioners. That's all I would ask for really. Air conditioning in Southern California is a must and it's a danger to students to not have it in these concrete buildings that take in heat like crazy.

But, that's just the bad stuff. There is way more good about our campus housing but you have to know about those dorms or else you would be coming in blind here. If you're a freshman you WILL end up in one of these four dorms. East, Williams, Anderson, or Grossmont. I definitely recommend East or Williams. Hands down wish I had been put into one of those dorms but due to my First Year Seminar being a music oriented class I was placed into Anderson (the hall with a music floor). I have made a lot of friends but the inconveniences of being far from the center of campus and the lack of an updated building almost made it not worth it. But I lived and you will too if you end up here, you just might not like it. If you can, try to get into Melrose, Cortner, or California/Founders. Those are the best dorms on campus, however they do not have a lot of freshman students.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social scene is splendid and everyone is extremely welcoming and helpful. The actual living facilities are not up to date though. The bathrooms/ showers need to be cleaned more, there needs to be more washers and dryers that aren't such a long walk away, and there should be a more accessible kitchen area. The CAs should also enforce the drug and alcohol policies a little more.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are small unless you have a suite, some places dont have AC which sucks for about half of the year. The freshman dorms get annoying because some people should still be in highschool but you meet a lot of people.
