Dorm vs. Apt Style at Laurier

A photo of cloevia cloevia
Hey guys!

So I have decided to go to Laurier for BBA, I get my choice of residence style but I really do not know what to pick.
I am torn between a Single dorm style room or apartment style.
I know there are a lot of pros and cons for both, hence why I am so confused! If I could hear some opinions it would really help me out! I just want to have the best residence experience I can!

Just finished my first year BBA at Laurier and I can honestly say it was the best year of my life and wish I could relive it again.

As for dorm vs. apartment, I had a dorm and really liked it. I had a single room and shared a bathroom with only one other guy which was pretty nice. I feel living in a dorm also introduced me to a lot of different people and if you like to socialize or would like to meet new people definitely go with a dorm. The one thing I didn't like about dorms is the fact that you have to buy a meal plan and the food at Laurier sucks.

All in all, living in a dorm is one experience I will treasure for the rest of my life. If you do choose a dorm, socialize early and get a good core group of friends.
