Real thoughts from real students:

“You’ve got the dining hall right there. You’ve got a computer lab inside, that’s pretty convenient. It’s pretty centrally located on campus so everything is relatively close.” — Daniel Campanyo, Senior

“Everything – food, printing, etc. – is in this building, so it’s very convenient. You have access to all floors easily. Rooms are bigger, and each wing has a living area that’s just for the people on that wing, so it’s more private than Ann’s or Martin’s.” — Katie Lipko, Junior

“I’m tired of walking into my hallway and having people smoking cigarettes on the fire escape.” — Eli Badaczewski, Sophomore

“There’s always a long wait for the elevator, and the cleaning ladies clean while everyone is trying to get ready.” — Katie Lipko, Junior
