Freshman year is a wild and crazy time filled with new experiences in a new environment. One of the best experiences is moving in and meeting all of the people in your dorm. Freshman year I lived in Marks Hall where I grew close to all of the other students living there. Marks Hall was only three stories so it allowed all of us to really know each other. These relationships are ones that transcend graduation and are the type of friends you will keep for years to come.
Marks Hall was also close to all the essentials. A stone’s throw away from the dining hall and the library, it was an ideal housing location. In addition, the building itself was situated right beside the other dorms so making friends was quite easy. Overall, there is no such thing as a bad housing option on campus–the atmosphere and culture lends itself to promoting new friendships.
