Dorm life at Kelly Hall: not so bad after all
After having spent my freshman year living in the well-known Kelly Hall, I’ve had both good and bad experiences with Drexel University’s housing system.

Be smart about off campus housing
I like to compare dorm life to ice cream sandwiches — great in theory, but in practice, just messy.

My new family at Millennium Hall
Standing tall at 17 floors with its curvy structure and shiny appearance, most people are in awe when they see Millennium Hall at first glance. I was definitely excited to be living there for my freshman year. The exterior design of the building makes it look far more superior to the other buildings, and what’s inside makes it even better. I advise all freshman looking to truly experience dorm life to give Millennium a chance.

Fry stated in this second letter that he did not want to avoid the topic and as such, described both the incident and measures to react to it in additional detail.

Three Ways To Maximize Your Bedroom
The first sacrifice I made when I came to college was my slight Panera addiction. The second was my beloved bedroom. I traded my room for walls that I can’t paint or put holes in and furniture that I didn’t choose. I suffered for a year in the quintessential college dorm room. Between the poster-filled walls and cold, tiled floors, the coziest decor in my room was a “couch” my roommate and I created using our drawers, a carpet and some mismatched pillows. This year, I returned to campus with a battle plan to transform my urban matchbox into a suitable
