    The Perks (and Drawbacks) of Living in a Dorm

    By Xu | April 24, 2013

    Now that my time as a dorm-dweller has almost come to an end, I have decided to reflect on my experience living on-campus as a freshman. To make it easier to gather my thoughts, this post will be divided between the benefits and the pitfalls of living the dorm life.

    Benefits:

    Pitfalls:

    Continuously living in a dorm is not for everyone, but it is definitely an experience that all college students should have. It is a great way to meet people as a freshman, and you are likely never to be bored with the constant itinerary of activities. I personally will be moving off-campus next semester because I will have early classes and will need to go to sleep early too. Overall, however, I enjoyed the experience and am grateful to have made more than a few friends out of it.
