Well, the new residence hall last time I checked had cracks in the foundation on the higher floors and it scared me when I leaved there. I rooms are okay but you have a few rooms in different buildings that are not suppose to have two people in them and then there in one building that got shut down, but it didn't stop them, but anyway that's life. Amenities are most times you get to choose your roommate and social atmosphere depends on who you are. They believe in everyone being closer to similar or doing the same thing if not you will catch the devil because you are different, but if you blend in you are good. Cost is great. It's affordable. Residence halls are convenient because they are only a few steps away from the buildings the classes are in. housing process in fine. Just fill out an application and show up on time and get in before the rush it will be simple for you, but over all the housing is okay to be here.
Review Allen University
The policies are strict on most of them but I answered the questions from what I see. It depends on the student and if they want to help the students rather than drop them, depending on the person because we have personal relationships here between people. Pros and Cons.
I returned a few semesters ago and my financial aid did not get completed until that following semester and they are still working on my financial aid for Fall 2015, because they could find some of my paper work in the archives.
