I really like living on campus. It's great to be near friends and my classes. However, some of mercer's dorms are in serious need of renovation. The dorm that I stayed in during my freshman year had serious problems with moisture. Some of the rooms and bathrooms clearly had mold and mildew in them. Some of the windows were not well insulated, so in the winter months cold air could seep through. However, the sophomore dorms are much better! I really like the dorm that am living in now with my three roommates. There is plenty of, even extra, space for all of us, so it gives everyone their own private space. As for the housing process, it is pretty simple. For the freshmen, their housing options are primarily determined by when they submitted their enrollment deposit. Those who submitted them earlier have first choice.
