I had a great living experience my freshmen year that I still reminisce about all the time. I lived in Parkside Arts & Humanities Residential College, which is located in the southwest corner of campus. It was the perfect place for me and I was very lucky to get the roommates I did.
Looking back now, my favorite memory from freshmen year was watching the Super Bowl with my suite mates. We got a ton of food and all cramped into one room and watched the game on my suite mate’s TV. Suite living was a really positive experience for me, and I highly suggest considering it when looking at housing options for your freshmen year.
