College: Quiet floor / Single sex floor/ Substance free floor?
1) obviously the quiet floor is best for doing work and sleeping with little trouble. However its easier to get into trouble if you decide to have a fun time in your room. 2) in college, you get really lucky if you have a well behaved floor, or even luckier if the floor above you is good. There will always be discrepancies with the cheerleaders upstairs yelling and stomping around and the jocks next door who drink a case every night. However! I would say that single sex floors (if you're a girl) are known to be kinda catty and not fun to be on. Women are mean, they talk behind each others back, and they do passive aggressive crap to one another instead of just coming out and trying to fix a problem. I would try to get floor that has both genders on it, that gets rid of some of the catty tension and guys are usually more fun to be around. 3) Most dorms and floors are the same on every campus with the exception of furniture and size. 4) I have lived in dorms before and it can be lots of fun. It can also be kinda crappy. It all depends on who you room with and who is rooming around you. I would say your best bet is a mixed gender dorm or floor. All dorms have quiet hours, they usually start around 10 p.m. and if you have a good RA you'll have no problems with annoying, loud, or rude roommates or floormates.
1) the Quiet Floor 2) of all these, I think single-sex would be the most boring. I lived on the substance-free floor at my college and I LOVED it! Never a dull moment. You can totally have fun without alcohol. But boys are a must. 3) The Quiet Floor will have quiet hours, which will often depend on the night of the week The Single-Sex Floor will be just that: all girls or all boys living there. The Substance-Free Floor is basically alcohol-free. You will get in trouble if you have alcohol or are caught high, but it's perfectly possible and relatively easy to have fun without the alcohol I've never been in an honors dorm, but they're most similar to the Quiet Floor (except it usually extends to more than a floor). 4) I lived on substance-free my freshman year of college and I totally loved it! Everybody on my hall was a nerd (in a good way. It's obviously not that way everywhere) and it was always easy to go down to the kitchen and find friends to play Apples to Apples or make pudding. Don't go with the quiet floor or single-sex floor if you want crazy stories. Because you totally can't have crazy stories without guys being involved!
1. Quiet floor. 2. They could be boring, it really depends on the RA and the students. I find that students on the quiet floor are more well behaved because they have to be so quiet all of the time. Throwing a party is pretty hard on the quiet floor. 3. The honors floor also tends to be well behaved, but isn't necessarily quiet. 4. I haven't, but my friend was the RA of the quiet floor. Quiet hours started at 5PM and she hated it (since she likes to play music and watch TV). Just because the floor you live on is quiet doesn't mean the floor above you will be. You still run the risk of not getting sleep on a quiet floor. The bottom line is that you can make friends in any dorm. It depends on you. If you're not outgoing, you might do better in a traditional dorm. I noticed that on quiet floors, students tend to keep to themselves compared to the traditional dorms where students socialized.
