2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Nothing but AWFUL experiences with community living. They seem to have a hard time doing their simple jobs and can't keep things in order. Every year they let in too many people than they can house. They are unprofessional and rude rather than accommodating and understanding when you try to work out issues with them. I feel as if I am dealing with people at the DMV rather than those of people who are supposed to represent the school well and be here to help me sustain a good time on campus.

Campus Housing: It honestly all depends what residential building you are living in. They are all close to your classes and have a great community feel.

Campus Housing: Freshman housing - JR - the oldest building. Falling apart. Bugs. Mold.

Pairing up roommates - horrible. I was bullied by mine.

RA handling problems - My RA was super nice in JR, but she never resolved in the issues.

Freshman housing - Dell - better than JR, but it's a literal prison.

Pairing up roommate - good. my new roommate was super nice. My new hall mates were amazing. My new RA was so special and nice. I never had any problems, but if there were any i know my RA would have solved them.

Housing process for returning students. I was lucky. I was able to get a good spot on the list because although I'm 18 now, I am technically a senior with good grades, so I was able to choose good housing first.

My boyfriend and other friends, tho, who were freshmen with average grades, were about number 1,700 on the list to choose a dorm... Lets just say even now some of my friends STILL don't have a dorm, or just recently got it. There was no choice for returning students that were Freshmen.

I'm 18, a senior, and an adult. I have a job. I'm not allowed to live off campus unless I get approved?

There are 22 year old students who are also not allowed to live off campus unless they get approved. I believe that is too much control.

Campus Housing: Little bit of a hassle to deal with but somewhat decent

Campus Housing: I don't think there is enough housing for the amount of students that we have; they definitely need to build more housing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The dorms are clean, and most of the rooms are spacious. The amount of free space in a room depends on the layout of the furniture. Students have the option of bunking beds, which some students do, especially in rooms with more than two people. There is a cleaning staff that cleans each day, so the dorms are well maintained. Some halls are known to be better than others.

Nicholas and Wesley are the newest dorms, so they are the freshest. Spivey and Joseph-Reynolds are in the center of campus, so they are close to every building. All of the other dorms are clumped on one side of campus, so some classes can be a longer distance to walk. However, because of the size of the campus, it is not an uncomfortable distance. Overall, all of the halls are different, so there are varying levels of closeness. Some halls have students that leave their doors open to their neighbors all of the time, while other students barely know the students next door. Most group socializing within the dorms takes place in the lobbies. Some meetings are held here, or even just groups of friends watching TV together.

Warning! Students are not allowed to put nails in the walls, except for on a designated strip. However, be careful when choosing sticky strips to hang up pictures, posters, and bulletin boards. The paint peels very easily off the walls!
