I'm living in chitwood too! I went to visit a month ago and walked around the dorm and it didn't seem that loud..
Ah no way :) I'm excited but I'm not going to know anybody since I'm from Michigan
Ha no fear no one really lives close. I live in texas but at the tip so I'm a 11 hour drive lol. I'm on the third floor. Everyone I meet when I visited seemed super nice so no worries!:)
Lol I'm all the way up on the 11th floor! And wow that's gonna be a long drive and good gonna see some southern hospitality :) are you going to be rushing?
Yes I'm going to rush :) so we move in a week early ha. And if you call and ask they'll let you move to a lower floor if there's room. :)
Ah no way! You should text me 248-298-6576 :)

For the most part, dorm life is like living with your best friends and worst enemies with no parents to regulate. Every incoming freshman must live in one of the dorms. For those who find loopholes around this rule and live off campus, they are missing out on quite an experience. Some of the dorms have movable furniture, but the most popular dorms (Chitwood/Weymouth, Stangel/Murdough, and Horn/Knapp) have the furniture built in, and you are an arm’s length away from your roommate (hope you get a good one!). There are six dorm complexes that have guys living in one building and girls living in another connected by a common foyer. Swiping your student ID is the only way to unlock the door that lets you into either the girls’ or guys’ building, and no, the key doesn’t work on both sides. This is supposed to prevent dorm parties and the intermixing of sexes, but it doesn’t really work out that way—so when you are using the community bathroom, beware.
The students who tend to dislike their dorm experience live on the higher floors and have to get to their rooms via elevators. More often than not, these elevators are either broken or stop on every floor. (Note: You will get nasty looks from fellow elevator riders if you live on a lower floor and don’t take the stairs.) Colds are another drawback of dorm life. With everyone’s air circulating through the vents, germs are easily spread, and it is not uncommon to be sick several times your freshman year.
