We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting the college. This place is so nice and the perfect place to stay if you want to check out the university. The staff is friendly and helpful to a degree us eastcoasters are not used to. There are food and activity options right in the building. The information session was held in this building and the tours leave from this building. It's a nice place to hang out and watch students. Everyone here loves the university so you can get the inside scoop from just about anyone while having coffee or working on your laptop in the lobby/study union area. The front desk is so helpful with cabs, restaurant recommendations and directions. I can't say enough about this place. I'm thinking about reserving my room now for orientation and parents' weekend to ensure I get a room and my son hasn't even committed to the school yet.
