3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Clean dorms but could use some updating. Small campus so dorms are close to classes. Bathrooms are clean but could use a few extra showers. Floor meetings encourage interaction with others on the floor. Rules are enforced but it takes a few warnings before anything serious would happen to you.

Campus Housing: Decent rooms but need some updating. Bathrooms are always clean. A few more showers would be nice. Floor meetings encourage social interaction. Dorms are close to classes which is nice during the winter. Good value.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms on this campus are mostly awful. The buildings are ugly, the rooms are ugly and have poor lighting. Mary Lyon is very nice but a standalone. There is not much community at all, nor any effort to foster any.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I select bad, because the buildings are not in the best repair. Most of them are older buildings; for example, the dormitory I live in was built in the 1950s, and has been renovated, so I've heard, but in appearance, is still in disrepair. The heat in the individual rooms is ridiculously high, but the hallways and lobbies are freezing. The wifi is awful and only works for five minutes at a time (if you're lucky) before you'll have to troubleshoot and reconnect in some buildings, and the furniture (with the exception of the sofas and stuffed chairs) are in bad shape (in most residence halls). I have no issue with any of the CAs or the RD, they are wonderfully friendly, but the building itself is in awful shape. I also appreciate the people who clean the building, but since they have so much to clean in so little time, I honestly didn't know that they even touched the showers until two weeks into second semester. The showers on my floor have rusted pipes in them, with the paint peeling off, with black mold growing in the grout between the tiles, which is also growing on a pipe above the entrance to both showers. The bathroom itself also has clearly not been revamped since the 70s or 80s, as everything is teal and tan, with darker teal swirls. I have not been very impressed with anything about living on campus. The students on campus are rude and boisterous, constantly screaming outside the dorms from Thursday to Saturday night. Don't even get me started on the food. Sodexo is quite possibly some of the worst food I have eaten, depending on the day. There is a rumor that goes around every so often that they put laxatives in the food to get us to eat more, more frequently, and if you look on the app Yik Yak, there are daily complaints about the food making people sick or warnings about how the food is that day. If you go anywhere other than the dining hall, everything is preposterously marked up in price.
