At 1800 a semester, depending on what dorms your in, is it really worth it? For the space, the use of utilities, and frustration with fellow hall members, don’t you think there may be something better out there? Sure, dorms are convenient because they are on campus, but does convenience make up for the other issues? Lets take a look. You and your buddy find a descent 2 bedroom house for only 550 a month. Split the cost and thats only 275 a month! That comes with a much larger living space, privacy, use of your own utilities, and so on! The more people you want to get a house with, the less the rent will cost individually. Personally, i think dorms are a complete rip off!
