Super chill dorm — facilities are amazing, everything’s super clean, dining hall is pretty sweet! Only downside is that the community definitely isn’t that solid.

You get a/c in becker, and tbh the only issue is t...

Perfect sized room and the common area was really nice and accommodates a lot of people. The view from the 5th floor was amazing. The elevator can be a bit unreliable and the walls are a little thin but those are my only two complaints. I would love to live there again.

The Best on West. This is the only dorm on West that has air conditioning that can be individually controlled in each room. Rooms in general are a decent size and are comfortable. There's a dining hall on the ground floor and the building is ideal. The quality of the bathroom depends entirely on w...
