Spring is here and in college that means picking a place to live when returning in the fall! It gives students something to look forward to but can also be nerve racking at the same time since you never know if you'll get into the Res Hall or Apartment of your choice.
Next fall I hope to be able to get a spot in the Langdon Woods suites with 3 of my friends but when I started looking into the ResNorth Housing Selection Process process I realized that students that already live in ResNorth get the choice before other students around the campus to keep their spot or change to another spot that is located in the ResNorth area. I don't see how that is fair. Why do the students that already live there have the upper hand of the draw? I realize that a lot of upperclassmen live in these areas, but the ranking numbers are based by student's age and credits earned. For the most part that means that they should have a high enough ranking that they would be above underclassman anyways.
I think that the housing process should be just by ranking number. That would give more of a equal chance for everyone to get into the dorms/apartments that they would like to live in.
