Just like with any other college, the reason students live on campus is for the experience. Dorms here are pretty typical of a small private college. There isn't a ton of room, the buildings are all about 60 years old, and its crazy expensive, but that's all part of why students do it. I couldn't imagine not having been on campus for my freshman year- I have friends who pulled it off but there is still a lot that they miss out on. Living on campus is beyond convenient; I think the longest walk I have to any class is 5 minutes tops. Not only is everything incredibly close here, but it makes it too easy to meet up with friends at any give time. I've gotten to the point where I feel guilty if I'm ever not doing something, because there's always someone I could go grab coffee, watch movies, workout, or even just sit and study with. When it comes to the halls, St. Joseph's is usually everyone's favorite. The social aspect is on a different level there, and everyone is very close. Regina isn't bad either, but it is a bit quieter and it takes students a little while longer to meet each other too. Hruby is typically for sohpomores, but the freshmen who live there usually like having their own room but hate how secluded it is from everyone else.
