    according to my brother who lives in the commons this year, apply to the commons halls in this order:
    1. aston
    2. krueger
    3. dunn
    4. mosher

    and commons are by far the best on campus dorms

    Anyone else have any opinions of dorms?

    I do feel like the commons dorms are the best dorms but i feel that aston kreuger and dunn are about the same while mosher isnt as inviting it seesms. to many engineering students in one place.

    i went with the southside modular dorms

    Blem, I think I recall reading that you are majoring in engineering. Any reason why you didn't pick the engineering living learning community?

    Your basically in the same postition I am. Im debating living in a modular southside dorm or Mosher. I am going to visit the campus again, but this time I will be looking at the housing. (I didn't last time cuz I came over the winter break so all I got was a tour of the campus.)

    I got an NMSF scholarship to TAMU, and on the stipulations form for my scholarship it says nothing about needing to live on campus....can someone verify if this is correct? After reading this thread, I'm kinda interested in Calloway House. How much more does it cost than living in an on-campus res hall? And if my scholarship covers room & board, it won't cover Calloway House, will it?
    if anyone has any answers or can share their experiences, I'd really appreciate it!

    Callaway house compares to the modular dorms in price in the two person per room apts. That is set up where a 2 bedroom/ 2 bath apt is shared with 4 people, It is very close to the same price. There is one situation where Callaway house is actually less (not much) than on campus dorm. The difference comes when you go to the one person per room price. That set up is more. I have the price break down if you want me to post.
    My daughter will be in the 4bedroom/2 bath set up at CAllaway house with 3 other girls.

    My S is a NMF. They deposit all your scholarship funds into an account. You pay your room, board, parking, etc. from that account. Off campus housing is covered with your money. Anthing left over from your account can be deposited into your savings or checking account
