"Lived in Meredith South my Freshman year. Overall a great dorm to live in as it was built really recently and is very modern. Rooms are great although a little small, but the furniture is really nice. There are study rooms and study areas on every floor and each pod has 2-3 private bathrooms along with a communal bathroom. Bathrooms are really nice although sometimes they do get a little dirty when they haven’t been cleaned for a while. Panera and Qdoba are also on the first floor of the building which is super convenient as they take meal swipes. However Meredith South is pretty pricy compared to many of the other dorms so that’s definitely something to consider"

"First Street is a nearly brand new dorm with all single rooms. They’re hella expensive rooms but very nice. Spacious rooms, private bathroom, super clean. It’s a bit far from classes but close to dining halls and Aspire food court. Nice lounges for studying, but there is no community whatsoever. RAs host events but no one shows up, everyone stays inside their rooms, the place is so quiet you can hear a pin drop. If you value community, want to save money, or often get lonely this is not the place for you, but if you really like you own place and nice rooms this is for you."

"Great place to live, especially as a sophomore and above. There's a Chick-Fil-A and sub place right in the building and, since it's a new building, all the lounge places are comfortable and have plenty of charging stations. The bathrooms are great and the bedrooms are nice."

"Best freshman dorm on campus. Great location: could wake up, roll out of bed, and walk to class in less than 10 minutes; close to dining courts and has Cosi downstairs; Third Street Markets is right across the street; not too far from any of the other freshman dorms or Mackey/Ross-Ade. You share a bathroom/shower setup with 2-3 other rooms, which is a much better ratio than Shreve or Earhart, and there are plenty of private bathrooms if you're into that. 3 full sized lounges and 5 small lounges per floor in Honors North. There's a computer lab and printer in Honors South too. A half-kitchen (fridge, microwave, oven, sink) in Honors North basement and a full-kitchen (same as North plus a stovetop) in South. Only complaint is the price. Oh and you have AC!"
