Living in the Dorms
This aspect of college may be the most challenging for some freshmen. As for others, this may be the most exciting part about their whole college experience. Many colleges are different when it comes to the dorms. Some colleges may have privatized dorms where each student may have there own rooms and share there own private bathroom while others may be a traditional small dorm room with a roommate and community bathrooms. Whatever the living arrangements may be the experience is still somewhat the same. Of course there are rules to follow when living in the dorms such as quite hours, visitation hours, and what items are allowed in the rooms. But having that first year college experience and living in the dorms gives students the opportunity to meet new people and interact with the people on there floor and building. Some colleges have special events or activities that they host for their building to engage the students and get them to bond with the other students in their buildings. Although the rules may be a drag, the experience is still one that's worth going through.
