5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorm room that I am staying in. My RA is really funny and a cool guy. I have no trouble in my dorms and if I need something fixed it is usually fixed within 24 hours.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The bed is very comfortable, the space is reasonable. The community in my dorm is awesome, and the people are great. My dorm is farther away from my particular classes then other dorms, but it offers me a good walk every day. The housing application process is well laid out and easy to follow. The amenities are good, especially the no-pay laundry room.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: i believe the social atmosphere of the dorms is the best part. i believe this cause in the dorms is where you will meet some of the best people and you will build your circle of friends and people to know. who knows you may even find love in the dorms. overall they are the best option for your first year of college.

Campus Housing: I lived in the nicer dorms which were extremely overpriced which didn't help me out financially at all.. but they were very nice. The others that my friends live in were run down but they were able to live there.

Campus Housing: The particular dorm I lived in wasn't amazing. But the newer dorms are supposed to be incredible.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Living on campus your freshman year is definitely the way to go. The campus is relatively small compared to other major universities, so each dorm is within an easy walking distance to classes or the dining areas. Be wary of the resident assistants, though; some of them can be extremely cool, and you'll wonder who put them in charge, but other RAs will seem like their sole purpose in life is to write up students. Each dorm has its own social scene and role on campus. Humphreys, for example, has a Mardi Gras party every year. Also, Pomfret throws get-togethers throughout the year. These parties are usually non-alcoholic, so if getting drunk and getting wild and crazy isn't your scene, these socials might be just right. 

The nicest dorms for freshmen are definitely the Maple Hill dorms. They're relatively new, and they have all of the amenities a college freshman could ask for. Having a private bathroom in the suite is one of the biggest perks. It is more expensive and further away from the center of campus than the other dorms, but living in Maple Hill is well worth it. Two of the most commonly lived-in dorms for freshmen are Humphreys and Yocum halls. They are located smack-dab in the center of campus, and they're next door to Brough Commons and across the street from the business college and Kimpel Hall. Humphreys, however, lacks an important aspect of comfort that Yocum has: air conditioning. But luckily the mild Fayetteville weather only makes this dorm uncomfortable for a couple of months.
