Dorm life is largely enjoyed by the underclassmen, though this depends on both the location and the inclusion (or lack) of air conditioning. East Campus dorms, including Chesapeake, Potomac, and Shenandoah Hall (aka the honors dorm), offer some of the most beautiful views overlooking the campus. These dorms are also in close proximity to the usually packed recreation center, just minutes away. The downside to these dorms is the time it takes to get to the main part of campus. Unfortunately, you have to give a little to live in luxury, and in this case, this means sacrificing 15 minutes to arrive on class punctually.
If you’re really looking to land the best, Wayland, Wompler, Logan, and Converse offer not only air conditioning, but also a prime location for classes and a view of campus overlooking the spacious Quad. Of course, Lakeside dorms and Village dorms provide a grimmer portrait of on-campus living. Devoid of air conditioning, with kids living in tight, close quarters, Eagle Hall in particular has sometimes been referred to as a "tower of sex, booze, and parties."
