College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live off campus and do not live in the dorms, but from what I here, they are fairly nice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For a residence hall, I had an amazing experience living on campus. The dorms had proper amenities and set ups and the staff was incredibly helpful. Each hall has it's own dining hall, the only inconvenience being the limited cafeterias opened on the weekends and the lack of options for gluten free students.The RAs were always nice and listened to students. The best part for me, however, were the students. After having a negative social experience in high school, coming to college was a huge relief. I still have yet to meet anyone that was not friendly, kind, or made me feel less than or not worth their time.

Campus Housing: Western has done some remodeling since Ive been attending and I must say that campus housing is one of westerns strong points. The best option for students second year and up are western view apartments where rent can be paid month by month or through financial aid! As for freshmen, the valleys have always been home to first year students and within the next few semesters, they'll be putting a brand new several floor dining hall for students in the valleys to dine in.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The current dorms are just really old and need to be updated.

Campus Housing: living in the dorms was probably the worst choice I could have made.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The majority of freshmen lives in the "Valleys," which are large and contain cafeterias within the buildings. However, student opinion is pretty divided on these halls, as students either love them or hate them. There are a few other specialty dorms located on campus, reserved for transfer students and University athletes. The freshman dorms are located in the far corner of campus, which makes the trek to class long and hilly; however, there is a bus that will take you from the dorms to your classes.

The few dorms located on Main Campus are near most of the buildings where classes are held. There are also a variety of apartments on campus that are available for rent, reserved for upperclassmen. The dorms are basic and contain cable and Internet, which are included with your room and board fees as part of your tuition.
