Pros and Cons of Life in the Dormitory

Pros and Cons of Life in the Dormitory

Living in a dormitory is probably the most memorable part of studying in college. There is no better place to learn how to solve a conflict with your roommate, who decided to drive you crazy, stock food you took from a dining hall or host three times more people than your place can actually fit and conceal it from an R.A.

Are any of these reminding about your being a first-year student? If you do not remember it, read the list of pros of dorm life to recall about alma-mater times. Don`t worry, we didn`t forget about cons.
