The rooms are all bigger than most college dorm rooms. There are some buildings that are very old and you can tell their age, but it is still better than most of the state school dorm rooms. The school makes it impossible for students to choose to live off campus in most ways. Henry is the worst dorm, there are bugs everywhere and it is a motel set up. I currently live there and it is honestly very loud and the ventilation system is not very good. The apartments are very very nice and each student gets an individual room and two people share 1 bathroom, and 4 people share a living room and kitchen. It is actually a great space. There is a workout space in one building and not really many amenities in other buildings. Laundry is usually a hassle, but I feel like that is typical of any college except that our laundry is free. The housing process is simple, so there can't be any complaints there besides the fact that the housing lottery is just time consuming. On campus housing is very expensive, so I feel like they should allow for some off campus options for more students. The best thing about housing is that you are always less than a 5 minute walk from all of your classes!

There are three sororities and three fraternities at LaGrange College. They are currently building a new "Fraternity Court" with brand new fraternity houses that will open in the Spring of 2016.2-3 guys will live in each house. Pretty much everybody at LaGrange has something to do with greek life, but nobody takes it personal if a person is not a part of greek life. There are a lot of philanthropy events held to support the fraternities and sororities on campus weekly, and all of the groups are very supportive of each other. There are 3 sorority houses on campus as well and there are 2-3 girls allowed to live in each and those people are chosen by their sorority to live there. All of the sororities attend each other's parties; however, the fraternities are picky about what guys are allowed to enter their house. Non-greek students usually get along with greeks really well, and I know that I personally am friends with many non-greeks. Non-greeks are constantly invited to the socials and parties, so there is a very good relationship there. It is really great.

The school is great at providing students with job internships, has great relationships with alumni, and has many employers constantly giving people. The career center has paperwork you fill out and they will doubtlessly find an internship for you to go to. The army, waffle house, and many other places constantly come to the school to recruit workers. There is even a month (JanTerm) when students are encouraged to take part in internships. There are even chances for students to earn class credit hours for completing internships. The career center is awesome and can help provide anybody with an internship or job shadowing experience if they need it.
