Most students and parents wonder what residential culture is like, but it's hard to figure it out if you've never actually lived in one of the halls.

What do students do when they're not in class? What is it like sharing a co-ed bathroom? Where can you study in your building? How does one find a suitable roommate? Is anyone in charge of new residents?
