The dorm rooms themselves are pretty decent. A double in Sennett is spacious and plenty of room for two people, and the singles in Dorward are great! At first they seem kinda small, but once everything you have is actually put into place its absolutely perfect. The heating is nice, on occasion it almost feels like a window could be opened, which is much preferable during the winter season that freezing. Though Dorward is a little farther away from Torrey and the classrooms it's perfect for those who don't get out much and physical activity. The social atmosphere is pretty good, it's best to stay away from the sororities and fraternities though.
Greek life affects the social atmosphere of campus by just having someone to talk to and the competition between each Greek is entertaining. Greek students are viewed by non-Greeks by telling rumors about what they do when people pledge but they are all just rumors. Other then that they view them as fun, educators, and friendly. There are currently 8 greek organizations. There is Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Kappa Delta Phi, Kappa Mu Alpha, Omicron Delta Phi, Phi Tau Phi, Psi Delta, Sigma Chi Lambda, and Kappa Alpha Kappa.
My favorite experiences so far would be the classes and activities that they have planned for us. I love my psychology class and I currently got back from a Blind-182 concert, where I had the best time. What makes my school unique is that we are a small campus and could easily help out the community with stuff like volunteering. We also live near the east costal beach. If I could do it all over I would choose this school again because of the small class room and I could easily learn in a small atmosphere. The only thing that I would change differently is the housing. I would rather get an apartment then live on campus.
