5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I have visited a lot of different colleges, but there was something special about Geneva. The campus is small so it's almost like a family relationship with professors. The people are genuine and I find myself enjoying a lot of student lead activities. The classes are well taught and God is involved in every class.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The residence halls are very nice, close to classes, clean, and spacious. The community at Geneva College is excellent. Students are supported by one another and the faculty and staff. Unfortunately, because it is a private school, it runs off of tuition. Therefore, tuition is expensive.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are decent. Some are better than others. They are all quite close to the buildings where most of the classes are held. The social atmosphere is pretty good for the most part.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are alright. Nothing spectacular really. The girls dorm is cleaner than the guys dorms but that's expected. The social atmosphere is pretty good. Friends are always close only a one minute walk away max so its nice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I enjoying living where I do. It is close to my classes, and I am not a picky person.

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.
