"Best" is a relative term. Some students choose their residence hall based on specific amenities, such as suite-living or shared bathrooms. Other students may choose their hall based on their academic interests or the location on campus.
Because freshmen have classes throughout campus, proximity is not a factor. Our undergraduate residence halls are coed, and although some floors are single-sex only, many common areas are shared by both men and women. Computer labs, study rooms, laundry facilities and the dining hall are all shared by students.
Chances are, no matter which residence hall your student chooses, in a matter of months, your son or daughter will think it's the best place to live on campus.
