Campus Housing: Claflin is a okay school nothing too great nothing to fancy it what you make of it pretty much.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The name of the dorm I was staying in was called Asbury Hall, its not as spacious as it could be but it made do for the year that I had to stay there. Cleanliness was okay. The best part was the people that also lived there. They was very friendly and welcome me with open arms the moment I arrived. I must say the cost is very high and not worth the living conditions, it could of been better but it made do.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The Dorms are convenient because they're close to everything on campus and classes. One of the worst things about living on campus in the dorms are the community bathrooms because Not everyone is clean. Another thing is the noise level in the dorms. You have to adjust to it because not everyone has common curiosity for each other. The amenities in the dorms One good thing about living on campus in the dorms is the social atmosphere. You will meet a lot new friends from different places and cultures. Also, you will learn new things and advice from them.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The school is alright. The downside is living on campus the housing rules are so strict.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is the best to do when people are in college. The social atmosphere gives people a chance a network with others and their professors. It also gives people the chance to get to no each other and to see who attends your school.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most freshmen completely loathe living in the dorms, especially because it is usually their first time sharing personal living space with someone else, but students soon realize that living in campus housing is a part of the total college experience at Claflin. Furthermore, each residential hall is different, so every student’s experience will be totally unique. Some students will have to adjust to using communal bathrooms and rooms, but for the majority, the transition is easy. Running into and meeting other students in the dorms usually blossoms into friendships, which usually end up lasting throughout a student’s four years at Claflin and beyond.

The resident assistants (RAs) are also friendly—as long as you remain on their good sides. Residential Life tries to keep everyone involved in their housing communities by having weekly meetings and other fund-raising events. However, everyone here agrees that the rules are overbearing, especially the visitation policy, which states that students cannot have guests in their room and can only visit with others in the lobby during certain hours. Nevertheless, the dorms are always clean and noise-free because students would rather obey the rules than pay the fees for breaking them. Each of the dorm rooms comes with own basic amenities, and it is up to the students to bring other furnishings they may need. Overall, many students enjoy living on campus because it is convenient—the dorms are close to all the academic buildings, as well as the cafeteria, which is a nice perk.
