Now that I’m a senior, it’s crazy to remember back to freshman year and think about living in the dorms. Sometimes it seems like so long ago, and sometimes it seems like just yesterday. I lived in Parkside Arts & Humanities, and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer place to live. I met so many of my friends in that dorm, and we still get together for Parkside reunions. Some of my favorite things about Parkside were its proximity to Parkside dining hall (right next door), it’s quietness (I could do my homework in my room without needing to walk to the library), and the suite-style living (I lived in a room with one other girl, and we shared a suite of 8 girls, 4 rooms, 2 bathrooms, and a common room).

For more info about my experience in Parkside, check out my blog from last year.
