Exeter Dorms

edited March 2012 in Prep School Admissions
I know everyone says not to ask for a specific dorm, and none of them are the best or the worst, but what are the pros and cons of each? (girls dorms)

for example: who has the best single rooms? best bathrooms? biggest rooms? best view? closest to stuff? everything!

i am particularly interested in single rooms.

    I want to know the same stuff, how about dorm traditions and personalities too?

    I got a double in Lamont, I don't know if that's good or bad lol.

    FYI
    My Son is bringing his bike - - Exeter recommends that all bikes be registered with campus safety and also have locks. There is an online super quick registration form - all you need is your Dorm and room#, email, extention #, and bike model, color and serial #. The campus safety officer will visit in the evening to verify and apply the sticker.

    on the other exeter dorms thread someone said that gould hall was changing to a girls dorm, and the head was going to be an art teacher. can anyone verify?
  • collegeprofcollegeprof Posts: 82Registered User Junior Member
    Yes, I can verify :-) All right, you want proof? Go to the new Exeter ebook at http://www.exeter.edu/documents/EBook.pdf. It lists all the faculty members who live in all the dorms in 2008-09 (p. 74). You'll see that Ms. Misenheimer is the dorm head of Gould House. Now go to the faculty directory at Phillips Exeter Academy | Faculty to verify that Ms. Misenheimer is an instructor in art. As for the fact that she's awesome, you'll just have to believe me... :-) By the way, you can figure out the "gender" of each dorm by looking at the list of proctors on p. 75 of the ebook: male proctors = boys' dorm; female proctors = girls' dorm.

    Gould was a girls dorm last year too so it's not completely new
