I lived in Covenant, which is the farthest from classes of all the resident buildings. We each get one roommate, compared to the other girl's dorm which has 4 girls to a room (although sometimes you can get in with less). I thought in Covenant, the room size was great. You have the opportunity to do all sorts of things with your room, in the other dorm, not so much. I spent the night in West and I found it claustrophobic. If you don't mind the walk (and I actually love it, gives me some exercise :) ), then Covenant is great! The bathrooms are shared with the whole wing, but they are kept very clean and I have enjoyed the community that comes from having shared bathrooms.
Review Dordt College
I am currently a senior at Dordt College. I have absolutely LOVED the past four years at this school. The campus is beautiful and close, so everything is an easy walk away (helpful when running late to class:) I have found the faculty to be extremely helpful and passionate about my learning. All have been more than willing to write references for me, and I can be confident they can attest to my identity due to the small ratio and personal relationship with each. Finally, the students on campus are phenomenal. I am not looking forward to graduating out of this campus and leaving all of the wonderful people I have met and my roommates. Dordt has been fundamental in my physical, emotional, and spiritual growth as an individual.
I currently attend Dordt College. I am enjoying the experience of being a college student. The facilities are very nice. The campus center, classroom buildings, chapel, rec center and dorms are all very up to date. The campus is beautiful especially in the spring and fall with all of the flowers that are planted. I am currently a Communications major. I am able to take a number of my major courses right away as a Freshman. The professors are helpful, and they are willing to meet with you individually if you need it. They have also been helpful in guiding me on which classes to take during each semester. I appreciate the different activities that are held on campus. These have helped me to meet a lot of different kids from other areas of the country.
