Campus Housing

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I stayed in Woodsen my freshman year, and would really recommend it. Its very close to the dining hall as well as the academic buildings. My room was a really nice size, and had plenty of storage as well as a sink. The hallways as well as the bathrooms were always clean. The laundry was free. Woodsen is not nearly as fun as Spencer, and you don't develop the same sense of Freshman camaraderie, as it is a mixed grade dorm. There is only one small kitchen, which is always dirty and was infested with ants. There were no good "study" areas, and the community areas are always taken up by people binge watching TV. It is also apparently haunted. Overall, the rooms in Woodsen are very nice, but the communal areas are lacking.

Campus Housing: The food will ruin your stomach, they close at 6:30 p.m., and have no late-night alternative. The dining facilities on campus haven't passed health and safety in a few years and they have been guilty for cross-contamination of the food. Also, cockroaches, flies, and rats are found crawling into the dining facilities at night and early in the morning. The town closes early (around 8 p.m.). The closest places to eat are approximately 1-3 miles away so you need a car. The places in town are too expensive for college students.

The dorms are falling apart, they're covered in mold, are infested with cockroaches, there is no air conditioning in the summer months and you can't open your windows because the screens have holes. The dorms also have no bathroom ventilation system and there is inconsistent house-keeping.

The school cleans up for visitors but does not clean up for the students. When there are events on campus, the students must relocate their vehicles as parking is taken away from students and given to visitors. Freshman parking is dangerously far away. Parking for Faculty is also poor as they often must park on Staunton streets and move every two hours.

There is also a huge disconnect between the board of trustees and the campus body. For example, throughout the years faculty and staff have mysteriously disappeared with no words nor explanation.

There is a serious problem with security as there are only two in-shape security officers currently employed. The rest of the officers are over the age of 50, smoke, and have health problems.

Tuition is too high for what you get, it is not of good quality for the money spent.

Campus Housing: It's dirty. The showers never get washed. And it looks and feels like we live in jail.

Campus Housing: I personally feel like the housing could be a lot better. Students pay $36,000 a year to stay in dorms that have not be renovated since the 1980s.

Campus Housing: Housing at Mary Baldwin is pretty nice and definitely not something I would take for granted. I live in the Tullidge Dorm Building which is a very long walk onto main campus, but the other dorms are directly on campus.
