Can someone tell me the pros and cons of each of these dorms (eg. location, social life, type of people in the halls, distance from gym and library)?

    They are all near each other, but fevans is prob closest to the gym. LSM is closest to the library, and as far as social scene I have heard fevans and LSM are greater since they both are new and have much more lounges and places to socialize.

    They are essentially equidistant from the library and gym lol. I suppose it may take a few more seconds or a single minute more to get to the gym from LSM and Turman.

    Thanks for the feedback! I had few other questions.

    Are the same kinds of students in each dorm?

    I hear the halls are not too social at LSM. Is that same at Fevans & Turman?

    Also, did you guys use the roombug app? If so did that work well or is random roommate better choice?

    It didn't work for my daughter. She "interviewed" a lot of people and the girl she decided to room with didn't disclose that she was bipolar and not taking her meds until the had been room mates for a month. It was a rocky year!
