Living on campus is great because it is a flat, small campus and easy to get to classes. For first year students living in the Davidson dorms are the best (AC! and it's like small apartment), or living in Carmel (AC and elevators), or EHouse (AC!). There are some dorms that do not have AC and can be really hot. Many people do not stay in their rooms, they hang out in the lobby and watch tv, do homeowork, or play outside the dorms. When it comes to the housing process, it all depends on the year you are in and your grades. I believe it is a fair process but I wish we had a new building for more room.
