Tercero smells like cow every now and then, but they are getting beautiful dorms that will be open Fall quarter! It's pretty much a trade-off. Haha.
The first day I moved into the dorms, I hung out with my high school friends at dinner, and then met up some new friends that I found on Facebook. It isn't too hard to have the best of both worlds. Sooner or later, you'll start to hang out with one over the other, so do what feels right to you.
. Definitely make friends with your roommate and neighbors so you all can go eat at the DC together.
