Review Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts
For freshmen year you have to live in either the main dorm building, Hoosac Hall, or the suit style building, Berkshire Towers. After than you can live in either those two or in the Flagg Townhouses at the back of campus. Most people want to live in the townhouses because they offer a greater feeling of independence and you get to live with a larger group of friends. It is relatively easy to change your housing throughout the semester if you need to, but most people like where they are assigned. The dorm buildings have both been renovated in the past few years and are very modern and updated, the townhouses are a little outdated but still pretty great. It is very easy to socialize and find fun activities to do within your building. All the housing options are within a five minute walk of all buildings on campus. There is a mandatory residency requirement of living on campus from freshmen through junior year, which is not unreasonable and most people live on campus all four years.
I am a member of the Greek community within my school, yet the school fails to recognize my fraternity and other organizations on campus, to be completely honest, Greek life plays a major part in the social aspects within the campus, yet non-Greek students can't see past the parties, but fail to realize that Greeks, at least in my school actually have the highest GPA on campus and do multiple hours of community services collectively and individually. Hopefully faculty within the school, recognize the hard work Greek members within the campus do positive things, everyone should be open-minded and believe in stereotypes and stigmas. I am proud that I am a member of a fraternity in which there are members of different races and ethnicity but also of different sexual orientation together forming a brotherhood.
Not all sides of political aspects are represented. People who do not conform on the liberal side are left out and targeted. It feels as though everyone is against you, although they say they are trying to incorporate that other side as well to be peaceful. I find that it is very hard to make friends here and the social scene is hard to tap into because everyone is so secretive about everything.
