    Re: Top dorms at ISU

    Do you want to be pampered in luxury or do you want to party your balls off? Do you want to live around other people in your major, or a mix? Do you want co-ed floors or non?

    Picking a dorm is 100% dependent on your preferences.

    I lived in Willow. You can't go wrong with co-ed floors. It is right by Seasons dinning center, lied rec, and a bus stop. A lot of parking is also available.

    Old RCA, BWR now. All dudes, but there is a dorm that is all women less than a block away. Not to mention close to Jack Trice. Also huge field to play ultimate, football and any other shenanigans. Best 2 years of my life were spent on Welch floor.

    Forgot to add, The rooms come furnished. 2 lofts, a dresser, walk in closet, computer chair, desk and small cabinet. Not to mention the rooms are pretty big compared to others on campus.

    If Farch tickles your fancy, you may also want to consider Knapp or Storms Halls.

    Definitely go to MWL. I lived in Martin this semester and it was super nice but MWL has much more going on if you are looking to meet a lot of new people

    Most popular if you're a cake eater, maybe.

    Re: Top dorms at ISU

    For an engineering student I would highly recommend Friley, which you can be guaranteed a spot if you join a learning community. For any other major I wouldn't know, but avoid Helser if you know whats goof for ya. I would also avoid Willow and Larch if you don't like the sound of fire alarms going off 24/7.
