If you need a single and have a bad number, Hewitt is there. Also, if you loved Quad life in your first year and want to stay there, Hewitt is there. Not super special or fancy, but it is consistent and standard.
“I loved Hewitt. It’s the homiest dorm I’ve ever lived in. There’s a certain Hewit scent™ that made me feel at home as soon as I turned the corner in from Sulz.”
“The views of Claremont onto the river are amazing, especially at sunset.”
“The only downside to Hewitt are the showers. I’d recommend showering in Sulz or Brooks, but that’s nowhere near a deal breaker for this dorm. Sulz showers slap.”
“I would say that it’s a very typical dorm room look. it’s almost all singles and you can hear your next-door neighbor quite clearly. This year is nice because there are only 5 girls on the whole floor so it’s generally quiet and the girls are nice. If you are on the Claremont side the wind tunnel is LOUD. As a light sleeper I am not a fan. This year I had/have a mouse problem and it was mortifying. It was crawling in my stuff and I swear I couldn’t sleep properly anymore because I’m scared I heard one. Overall it’s not a terrible place to live but as an extrovert and someone who is terrified of mice, I am not a fan.”
