which dorm?

<p>I'm thinking about living on north side, because i hear it's quieter, which is what i'd like freshman year. Do many freshman do this? I don't want leonard, but what's the difference between McDowell and Hughes? Doesn't one have more sports teams? Would I be the only freshman in those dorms? Thanks!</p>

<p>there are freshman in ALL the dorms (except centennial) and on every floor. I am in Leonard now and really like it, though I'll be in Hughes next year just because that's where my future roommate wanted to stay. I have heard that McDowell has many people who do sports, but there are plenty of people there who don't as well.</p>

<p>thanks!, anyone else?</p>

<p>I just filled out housing and this is where i've decided to live:</p>

<p>1) Letts- because its on the south side, and although i'm not into the "huge" party seen, i like how on the south side things are connected. Of the three halls on south, one i can't get into (becaue i'm going to be a frosh) and i don't want to be in the greek mix.</p>

<p>2) Hughes- On the North side which is fine and the chance of getting in on an all female floor is slim. I stayed in this hall when i went to my AU overnight visit and it seemed like a really nice place to live. </p>

<p>3) McDowell- Its on the north side, which is nice again for the type of person I am. I am sort of into sports (meaning i played like varisity soccer and swim, now i just swim for fun)... well more meaning I like to play sports but i'm not very good. Yet at the same time i met my best friends playing a sport, so i think that i'll have a good time on this floor. </p>


<p>Although its not much, here is a brief description of the dorms:
The AU residence halls are divided into two sections, North & South.</p>

<p>The North Complex includes Hughes, Leonard & McDowell Halls. </p>

<p>Hughes... is known for the strong sense of community and involvement shared by its residents and houses two Honors floors. Hughes has five coed floors, one all-female floor and a computer cluster.</p>

<p>Leonard... is the international/intercultural hall, in which multiculturalism is a primary focus. Leonard has five coed floors, two all-female floors and a computer cluster.</p>

<p>McDowell... houses the North Side Fitness Center. McDowell has five coed floors, two all-female floors and a computer cluster. </p>

<p>The South Complex includes Anderson, Centennial and Letts Halls. </p>

<p>Anderson...housing more students than any other hall, is home to an Honors floor, several Greek Chapter rooms and the South Side Computer lab. All floors in Anderson are coed.</p>

<p>Centennial...is the upper-class hall noted for its semi-private bathrooms. All floors in Centennial are coed.</p>
