CMC is a small campus, but the types of dorms vary a lot. There are dorms for those who love to party, dorms for people who love to study, and dorms for people who are somewhere in between.
There are three basic areas that most students live in: North Quad, Mid Quad, and South Quad. North Quad is definitely the most social of any of the dorm regions; any night of the week, you can find someone partying in North Quad. North Quad dorms are suite style (four doubles and a bathroom).
Mid Quad is a marriage between North and South Quad: sometimes it parties, and sometimes it’s quiet. It’s a popular place for freshmen to live because it's so easy to meet people. Mid Quad dorms are hall style, with a mix of singles and doubles sharing a big central bathroom.
South Quad is the quietest place on campus; with mostly upperclassmen, it has a more serious air. South Quad also has Stark Hall, which is the only substance-free dorm on campus. South Quad dorms are called “The Towers” because they are eight floors (six higher than any other building on campus) with 12 people (a mix of singles and doubles) on each floor with a central bathroom.
For seniors, there are really nice four-person apartments on the edge of campus, which are part of student housing.Dorm size and quality varies a lot, as some buildings have been recently renovated and others are due for improvements.
