Bwog Recommendations:

  • Carman is very social! If you like talking to new people and making new connections, then Carman is for you.
  • The bathroom situation is quite nice since you’re only sharing it with 3 other people. This may seem like a lot but keep in mind everyone has their own (vastly different) schedules. 
  • Carman is literally right next to Butler, so utilize it while you can!

Resident Opinions:

  • “As an introvert, I didn’t really get the whole Carman experience, but the bathroom and AC were really nice. And I liked my roommate.”
  • “All my friends tell me how great my bathroom situation is. I think that’s really the biggest plus.”
  • “I love how social we are!”
  • “We’re the best freshman dorm.”
  • “My floor was pretty quiet compared to other floors which I did not expect. It was nice.”
