"Social" dorm?

Is there a dorm at Colgate that is considered the "social" dorm for freshman? Or a dorm that is definitely not social?

    Social meaning partying? If so, it depends on the class year. For Class of 2014 it definitely was Curtis. When Class of 2013 were freshmen it was Andrews. It will probably change next semester.

    I mean, everyone at Colgate is social but the quiet/less social dorm is always substance-free. You make friends and you go to the social areas. You aren't bound to your dorm. I prefer a quiet/less social floor for sleeping purposes and to make friends with the social butterflies to have the choice of being social/hearing noise or not.

    Dorms aren't "typed" like that so much. There are basically four freshman dorms (five if you count that other little place . . . ), Stillman, Andrews, East, and West Halls (names beloved by generations of Colgate students, I assure you) and they will develop their own character depending on who is in them. It varies from year to year. But, even each floor is going to have a different feeling to it, to some extent. Since all of the four main freshman dorms are right next to each other (or across from each other), you visit friends in the other ones and life goes on. None will be better or worse, no matter what anyone tells you. They're all nice enough. I wouldn't give it a second thought.

    Curtis was all freshman for class of 2014.
    Class of 2015 it will be freshman on floors 1-4 and sophomores on the 5th (which is about half the size of any other floor anyway)

    I lived in Curtis and loved every second...but I wanted hall style not suite style anyway. Which is why I chose to live in Drake next year
