3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For the incoming freshman, we are offered one of the best dorms which are new and spacious with a great view of Lake Hollingsworth. However, for sophomores, we get downgraded to the older buildings which are known to be infested with ants and mold. The building resembles a mental hospital with dull lights, narrow hallways, and large heavy dark doors that let you in and out of each hall.

The cost is alright. Although some of the worse options have the same price as the better dorms.

The housing process was okay. However, many people this year are left empty handed because the school decided to let in a larger freshman class, leaving some students with no where to live. The school is still trying to sort out the housing process.

Overall, the school has quite a bit to work on and it isn't the best when it comes to campus housing

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is great and it is conveniently located. However all the buildings, including the newest ones all have a mold problem. Housing is becoming very scarce on campus and they are beginning to take more students than they can hold, however they will not allow any out of area students to live off campus so people are getting horrible choice preference for housing. The new dorms are very clean, the older ones smell musty as soon as you walk in and other buildings have very outdated bathrooms.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman year I got a single dorm which had a great view and was in a brand new building. The only downfall is how small it was I could take two-three steps both ways and I would hit a wall. They treat the freshman the best so that they come back the next year. Freshman get the best dorms. Sophomore year you still have to live in the dorms and if you have a high enough GPA you can get average dorms which is what I got. I live in hollis (which had a mold problem in the beginning of the year for some of the rooms, I walked in one girls room and it felt extremely damp gross!) and you share a bathroom with 20+ other girls there are three bathroom stalls and four showers. You don't have access to any appliances you clean everything in a bathroom sink. You can't have any appliances in the dorms to cook your own food either unless you want to run the risk of it getting confiscated and fined. The worst part about the housing is you have to live on campus all four years. Once you're a junior you can live in an on campus apartment and they have converted all of the rooms to doubles and triples since they don't know what to do with all of the students. If you want to live by yourself in an apartment forget about it. There are only 3-4 single apartments TOTAL. I'm living with random roomates but at least I get a single room to myself which I had to fight for. Most people share rooms in the apartments.

Campus Housing: I live extremely close to the majority of my classes, which relieves a lot of stress and is very nice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the Barnett first year dorms and they are fantastic. The dorm rooms are spacious and comfortable. Everyone can come and hang out in your room or in the lounges. The only problem is that sometimes it kinda gets gross and dirty in the floors.

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.
