So the freshmen dorms are booked and I'm set to live in The Towers in the fall. I've talked to a couple of people who have said that the best way to get off on the right foot meeting a lot of people (I'm a pretty social person) is to live in the freshmen dorms. None of these people have lived in The Towers so they point out they can't speak from personal experience, so I figured I'd ask around here and see if anyone has first-hand experience. Will it be difficult to make as many friends and meet people living in The Towers freshman year? Bear in mind, I am from NYC and definitely have no problem hanging out with other "coasties", although I don't want to ONLY make friends from the coasts - I'd love to hang out with people from different backgrounds, as well. Anyone have advice/know anything? I have absolutely no idea what I'm getting into and dreading the idea that I'll feel socially isolated, so really any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!
PS - I've never used any of these message boards before and don't know if I get notified about responses, so if it's possible, it would be better to private message me because I'm guessing that goes straight to my E-mail..
