Dorms here are most definitely high quality compared to other campuses with a similar price range. The best options here are most definitely Chemnitz and Coburg because of their suite style living and air conditioning, but the other dorms are not all that terrible. Katherine is also one of the better dorms here because of the open layout of the rooms. Applications for housing and listing your suggestions is also very easy! The amenities are really great for such a small school with good dining options (more on weekdays when everyone is here) and a wide variety of activities like sand volleyball courts, video games, and pool. Cost is definitely one of the negative aspects of CUW, but it is very easy to get a lot of financial aid from them just for having good grades and a good communication with an admissions counselor that can help you find all of the aid options for you. The tunnels make getting around camps very convenient and I will probably never have to go outside in the Wisconsin winter, which is a definite plus.

Best dorms are Coburg, which is mainly a senior dorm. Worst are Augsburg, which vary from 1-person to 3-person rooms. Chemnitz would now come into a close second with the latter, however, because its occupancy has recently been changed to 3 people per room. Everyone has literally compared Chemnitz to a sardine tin now. Also Heidelberg has no AC, so expect the first 3 months in Fall to be a hothouse. House pricing has gone up a bit. It's more economical to live off-campus, but for those who live more than half an hour away, it's pretty convenient considering the rooms come with a fridge and microwave. The social atmosphere in Heidelberg, Wartburg, and Wittenberg is pretty open and friendly, considering more/mainly lower classmen live in these dorms. The bathrooms are nothing special, but they do the job.

Overall, I feel that the classes and the professors are great, but the nursing program could use a lot of work because to me it seems disorganized. What I mean by that is, the nursing program at CUW, tries to get everything down the first year by making you take all these science classes, so students can do their clinicals their sophomore year. This strategy makes me feel rushed and too fast. I understand that they want to be different from other nursing schools, but I feel as if they are making it a bit hard and impossible for nursing students to graduate in 4 years, making them graduate in 5 years. The science classes that the freshmen have to take for the nursing program, to me, seems rushed and difficult to understand because the professors and the class needs to rush through the material until the semester is over, therefore, causing lower grades and the inability to perform the best we can. I think that the class order should be the same as any other nursing schools.
