3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I think a lot of the buildings are not up to code in terms of handicap accessibility and such. I tore my quad muscle in the fall and had a very difficult time getting to my room and out of my building.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All housing is on campus and the furthest walk I had to class was <5 minutes. I was in the newest dorm, Memorial, and it had the best housing on campus (besides the apartments which are technically on campus but at the edge and an additional cost). Not too much to say about housing except it is pretty straightforward, and as long as you don't room in Ketler, it'll be nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being with hall mates is the best part of living on campus. I also had awesome RAs who took amazing care of all the girls on my hall.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are outdated and old, so the furniture is not updated. Some of the rooms limit the ability to rearrange the furniture.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Very pretty campus, lots of scenery, and pretty buildings.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Full-time students are required to live on campus, unless they are married, have significant health concerns, or commute from their parents' home. This policy keeps several hundred students within 150 acres of each other and lends itself to a closer campus community. All dorms are single sex. The divide is emphasized during freshman orientation activities like South of the Border-a Mexican theme outdoor dance on the guy's side of campus-and Northern Hospitality-a semi-formal dance on the girl's side. Inter-visitation hours are designated weekend hours when friends of the opposite sex can cross those borders and mingle or relax in a friend's dorm room. The rules of inter-visitation (door left partly open and light always on) are enforced by student residential advisors. However, Hopeman Hall has been nicknamed "Hopeman Hotel" for its behind-the-scenes female visitors.

Freshman women can expect to land in North Hall, a part of the larger MAP (Mary Anderson Pew) Dormitory. When most girls see their rooms, they wonder how they'll ever fit all their stuff-never mind their roommates'-into the cramed space. But after the necessary hours of rearrangement, they usually find all the niches they need. Memorial is the newest dormitory and serves 70 percent of the freshman men. Memorial guys live it up in their comfy lounges-big-screen TVs and leather couches-all included. MAP residents also enjoy heading over to breakfast without ever leaving the building. Many sophomore and junior women end up in Harker or MEP (Mary Ethel Pew) dormitories. Harker is closer to the heart of campus, but has inconvenient storage space and not-so-sound-proof walls. Male upperclassmen have a choice between Ketler, Alumni, Lincoln, Hopeman, and Hicks. Fraternities and independent housing groups hold designated halls in several of these dorms. Parts of Alumni, Hopeman, and Hicks appeal to a wilder party crowd. Overall, dorms are somewhat aged, which inevitably leads to plenty of maintenance needs and lots of umm, character.
