    got my acceptance letter from Iowa State yesterday, housing suggestions?

    Just got my congratulations/acceptance letter from Iowa State yesterday. I have to admit i'm pretty excited. Any suggestions for housing? best dorm rooms closest to campus, etc?

    I'm pretty far removed from the housing situation. Hopefully some of the younger guys here can help you. I'm thinking the dorms where Helser used to be are the closest. Maple Willow Larch was nice when I lived there.
    Congratulations either way.

    Stay where I stayed, Storm Towers baby! Oh wait......

    In all honesty if I moved in now I'd want to be as close to the UDCC as possible. I'd look at Friley.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    If you want the best experience available I'd say Friley. If you want comfort/nicest dorm then Eaton or Martin would be the choice but they come at a premium price.

    Every dorm is close to campus, except the towers. The closest are probably dorms in the UDA, followed by the RCA, and the farthest away are Maple, Willow, and Larch (but, still not too bad as those are right on the Orange route, and just a block farther away than RCA).

    The bus makes everything easy access from MWL. We had to pay when I lived there.

    I liked Birch-Welch-Roberts.

    The very good side of BWR is that it has some of the larger rooms on campus.

    Downside is that it is an all guys dorm. (but Oak-Elm is an all girls dorm right across the courtyard.)

    I also heard they got a new dining center there as well, some people have said it's better than the UDCC? If so, it must be pretty good!

    I really liked living in Friley and BWR. There really isn't a bad residence hall on campus though...some would argue Helser.

    Close can really depend on what your major is/how long you plan to live in the dorms.

    Definitely...join a Fraternity. Live in the dorms for a year maybe, but then join the big leagues. That's where the parties and hot girls are.
