There are several traditional dorms on campus for both the boys and the girls. The traditional dorms have a room for two people to share, two small closets, and a community bathroom. Most of the students who reside in the community dorms say that they love it because they know everyone on their floor. The only complaint students have about traditional dorms is the community showers. Students say that the showers are not always clean. In order to prevent taking a shower in a dirty bathroom, some students wake up as early as 5 a.m., right after the janitor cleans the showers. Students of all classifications can reside in any of the dorms. However, most juniors and seniors tend to move to the off-campus apartments, Normal Hills. These apartments have a kitchen (unlike the dormitories), a washer and dryer, two bedrooms, and a living room.
There are only two new dorms: one for the boys and one for the girls. The newer dorms have a single room, two dressers, two closets, a single bathroom, and two beds. Students tend to gravitate toward the newer dorms because they don't have community showers. Also, the cafeterias are located downstairs in the newer dorms, so students don't have to travel far to get food. Unfortunately, the water in the newer dorms tends to run cold, which is very frustrating for many students.
