Dorm Life at its Best
The perception people have of dorms in general is definitely not what dorms are really like. Here at Valdosta State, dorm life would be more compared to life in jail. The living environment isn't the greatest in dorms. Living on campus in a dorm is supposed to be homey, like your home away from home, but that is not the case. Dorm rooms are very small, and it's hard living with someone else in such a small spaces. Along with being confined to a small place, there is no privacy.

The bathrooms in the dorms we have now are very unsanitary and disgusting too. I think bathrooms should be in all the rooms, just for convenience. All of the doors in our rooms have key locks and they do not lock behind you. Some people forget to lock the door and that often leads to serious...
