I loved my room and made a lot of my friends in the dorm. My room was dirty when I moved-in, but I washed the walls and they were fine. I moved in with a lot of stuff (a car and a truck, for reference) but was able to easily organize all of it and still have enough room to have other people over. No...
Can be loud at times, but a talkative community. Living areas, bathrooms, and rooms are fine but feel old (Dickson is one of the older buildings)
Relatively clean, no bugs or anything in my experience. Bathroom quality depended on floormates; mine were relatively good so bathrooms were clean as well, although showers broke a couple times. Plenty of space in single and great for introverts or people who just want their own privacy some times. ...
I want to first say that there are far worse dorms that i could've been placed into, so i really can't complain too much. that said, i will point out just the major pros and cons i experienced pro: - the fact that i didn't have a roommate. don't get me wrong, i would definitely put myself on the w...
The bathrooms can be kind of gross if your floormates are messy. Having a single was great, it was enough space. Most of Clara Dickson is singles with a few doubles and triples throughout the building so making friends will be difficult if you don't hang out in the lounges in the first week. The wal...

I liked having my own space and a single though. Happened to meet my best friend here though, so wouldn't change a thing. The bathrooms ...
Unless you live on the second floor, you’ll need to bring your own lamp. The bathrooms do get pretty gross, but that also depends on who’s living on what floor. Other than that, it’s a pretty solid building
Looking back, Dickson was a great dorm! I did not request a single, but it ended up being a good experience. Because Dickson has a lot of singles, it's still easy to socialize. The rooms are cozy and comfortable and its in the center of north campus which is really convenient. The building is old an...
Even though there’s spiders occasionally in the halls and the bathrooms aren’t amazing, it was a great dorm for singles. If you want space and sleep you will get it!
