Complain all you want about dorms, but there are some advantages to living on campus. Assuming you and your friends have already figured out your housing group and have already begun
arguing thinking about all your options, you can head over to the ResCouncil website and fill out your housing lottery form.
Once you submit your application, you can spend your spring break plotting and making lists of potential housing options (or was that just me?) — the site also has pages of past results, so when your group gets its number in two weeks, you can see where you might fall and what your potential housing options are. And make sure to check back here the night of the lottery for ways to make your housing experience a bit more fun.
