I think Sproul Cove and Centennial are great housing options for freshman. I think it's crucial to be in a large dorm with lots of people just so you can get acquainted with many different types of people and maximize the time you have as a first year getting out of your comfort zone and exploring. Sproul Cove has a great location near the gym and a dining hall, and Centennial has an amazing building, and both have good sized rooms and floors with mostly 1st and 2nd years. If you want a plaza, I would probably recommend Rieber Vista or Rieber Terrace because of pretty good access to dorms and restaurants close by. I wouldn't recommend either of the suites just because they are more isolated and have a lot more upperclassmen.
