The idea of living on campus can be pretty exhilarating because, for many college freshmen, it’s the first time in their lives they are living on their own. No parents, more freedom—meaning they can even create pillow forts with their hallmates and friends if they wanted to, like Troy and Abed from NBC’s “Community.”
One of the coolest aspects of dorm life is living in a dorm atmosphere that’s conducive for making friends and socializing. Hall events, contests, and meetings are common in residence halls across the country, but according to students, some dorms are more social and fun than others.
Based on the College Prowler ranking Best Dorm Atmosphere, students are sounding off on Whisper, the app and website dedicated to public secrets, sharing their favorite aspects about their college’s dorm life.
