4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The rooms are hot all year round, but that is my only complaint

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are a lot of stereotypes associated with the freshmen housing. This has caused each of the residents halls to gain a certain personality. This makes it hard to get to know certain types of "Cliques" but also allows one to choose to identify with a certain personality that a hall possesses

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: They are nice and clean. The on campus dormitory rooms are a bit extreme.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoy living on campus because you are close to everything else on campus. It is also great because you are around all the other college students on campus so you are always with your friends.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty great! They can be a little loud at times, which can make studying a little challenging.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

For the first two years, students are required to live in the dorms on campus. There are seven dormitories on campus for students, as well as apartments and townhouses for upperclassmen. The general consensus on dormitories is threefold: They are clean, they have a friendly atmosphere, and there is a specific dorm that fits each student’s style. Dorms are cleaned daily by a friendly janitorial staff, and without their constant work, dorm life would maintain a more miserable consistency. There is also a campus-wide effort every semester to keep dorm room doors open while doing homework, which promotes community life and aids in developing friendly student relationships.

Each dormitory is known for housing certain types of students. Dorms near the music building have many music majors, and likewise, the dorms near the athletic fields house many athletes. However, it doesn’t matter what dorm you choose; all of them are great places to live, and odds are they will contain people with whom you can identify. As for convenience, literally every dorm is within walking distance of any class. Students live so close to their academic realms that it is almost a bit ridiculous. This is especially important in the winter when temperatures drop into the frigid negative degrees.
