4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are clean and spacious.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms on MSU campus is at best cozy. However, I do feel that the amount students pay to live in the dorms is well beyond the quality of the offered living. The rooms are meant for not one, but two people to be able to sleep, eat, have an office, a kitchen, changing area, and be able to relax and hang out. The size of these rooms is perhaps adequate for ONE person to be able to live in with all those.

The dining hall is also less than satisfactory for the amount students are required to pay. The food is typically not friendly to those with food allergies such as gluten intolerant allergies. For another reason, one of the dining halls has been slowly closing off during the course of the year from construction, forcing the resident students into smaller and smaller dining areas.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is a good environment but a little outdated.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I never lived on campus, so I do not know.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living in campus is great. You get the access you need and its easier to go to classes if you live in campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

By requiring freshmen to live on campus, MSU does everything it can to ensure its students will be well taken care of and meet plenty of people. The often overworked resident advisers provide counseling for their residents, organize floor activities, and introduce students to each other. Oh, and they also write up residents for breaking any of the rules, the one aspect of their job that makes them slightly less popular. For students who want to party, the high-rises on the West Side of campus are their best choice. These include Roskie and the two Hedges, North and South. The walls are thin, the space is crowded, but friend-making opportunities abound. Roskie has a bit of a reputation for attracting the outdoorsy, hippie type that likes to smoke some illegal substances, and the hall has interesting, triangular rooms.

The low-rises—including dorms such as Mullan, Langford, Hapner, Hannon, and the Quads—are typically quieter than the other side of campus. The Quads are a favorite of the low-rises, and their residents do not normally venture out of the Quad courtyard to find a friend. The other low-rises are not quite so full of cliques, but many residents in these agree that they can find plenty of likable people in their own building with which to hang out. Overall, living on campus ends up being a highly-positive social and academic experience for first-year students, and some even return for another year or two.
