3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshmen dorms could be updated some and could use air conditioning. The location is great however and provides a great sense of community.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Any dorm on campus allows for easy accessibility to anywhere on campus and eases campus life and community. Apartments have the least community but everyone is still friendly. Parts of the apartments are getting run down but they are fixing things little by little. The freshman dorms have the most community. On campus living is not worth the cost.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Where I lived this year, I was able to quickly and easily become close to many of the other girls that lived on my floor. We have each other to spend time with and to keep each other accountable.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The rooms are spacious and just like living in an apartment.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love the girls on my floor and am so blessed by them. We are all unique in our own way, but live together so well. The rooms that we live in is okay, but it is not about the building it is about the people. Community is key when living together and we have an amazing flourishing community.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Geneva offers gender-specific housing in both dorm and apartment styles. The housing policies are stricter than most, but more lenient than many comparable schools. Men and women may visit each other’s dorms Wednesday evenings and weekends, and coed lounges are open every day. Alcohol and drugs are not permitted, and smoking is limited to the much-loved "Smoker’s Gazebo." Dorm policies are well-enforced by the residence staff, but students do not consider the regulations oppressive—they come with the territory of a statedly Christian college.

The dorm facilities are above average on some counts, such as the friendly and efficient maintenance staff, the free laundry, and the relaxed atmosphere. As with any residence, a lot depends on the people, not the facilities. RAs offer several programs each semester, from video game tournaments to making milkshakes, to foster community and provide stress-free social time. A limited number of seniors are permitted to live off campus each year, a popular option offering greater freedom and lower cost. Most recently, McKee and Memorial halls, two ornate dorms traditionally reserved for upperclassmen, were reassigned to freshman housing to accommodate the large incoming class and foster community among freshmen. This left upperclassmen the apartments and the houses, but no designated dorm housing—though a few still live in the freshman dorms. The large incoming class also spawned the G3! Program (three students in a two-man room) and the conversion of a few lounges into seven-man occupancy housing. On the plus side, residents in these situations are compensated a sweet $50 per week.
