Living on campus is not bad but it depends on where you dorm.The housing lottery is a mess and only makes everyone's lives difficult. Be ready for a stressful afternoon! They tend to accept to many students and then find it hard where to place them. Especially if you're a sophomore.

Freshmen have certain housing: Alumni, Des, Salisbury, and Hanrahan (but pretty much for the honors students only). Alumni and Des are three floor identical twin buildings in the heart of campus. They house students in doubles. They're not bad but you're living on top of another person, so hope that you get along. Everyone on that floor shares a bathroom. Don't worry there are girls floors and boys floors. Hanrahan is usually 95% honors students housed there. There are two triples in the basement floor and the rest are doubles. It's a maze like building that makes you feel like you're just living in one giant house with 40 people. It's not bad except the furniture could be updated. Salisbury is usually not the best place to live. Many students enjoy it but it's not for everyone. Typically you're in small rooms where three or four people are made to live together.

Many of the departments are fantastic (ex. Education)! The Gen Ed.'s can be bit tedious, but there are many options for students. There are different academic programs--Tagaste, Foundations, Honor's. Each of these programs is completely unique. The campus itself is beautiful. Campus life is what you make it. If you want to party, you can definitely find something. But if you choose a life away from the college scene, it is easy here. Despite it's infamous "Consumption College" nickname, Assumption is a school that one can avoid the party lifestyle if they so chooses.

The professor are great! Very helpful and interested in you as an individual. All are required to have at least 6 office hours each week. I like that the curriculum has general education requirements. I personally learned a lot from them and found that I was interested in some topics that I did not think would interest me! Registering for courses can be frustrating, but I there is really no way around that. There are so many resources to help students with academics. There are office hours, workshops on study skills and organization, programs for freshmen, an excellent peer tutoring center, and students often form study groups.
