My D2 was accepted EA to UGA. In the letter that she received yesterday it said tha she should register for housing asap for the best chance of getting her requested dorm. We will not have a chance to visit until March but she is going to go ahead and register based on what we have read. She wants the typical freshman party experience, so it looks like Russell and Creswell would be her top two choices but which is better. Is the hill to get to Russell really steep and is it much further from classes, dining hall? And in Creswell, what is the Living/Learning Community like?
It says that you need to enter your top three choices. For 3rd choice she REALLY doesn't want all girls dorm (Brumby) but is it worth it to live there just to be close to the majority of other freshmen? What other dorms would be very social and have a large percentage of freshmen?
And last question.. she has no idea of a roommate yet as she is out of state. Is there a facebook group to find roommates? And can she register for housing now and then add her roommate request later?
