Calhoun hall is one of the prominent buildings in Drexel campus. With its unique arch-shape and the huge size its truly is a site to behold. However unlike its architectural beauty and stunning front layout, residence life at Calhoun is quite unpleasant. I have only been to Calhoun a few times, however those few trips and some conversation with a few friends of mine who live there was enough to tell me what the dorm is really like.
Building layout, Room and Living Conditions:
Building facilities, service and staff:
The front desk staff at Calhoun, like any other residence hall at Drexel, is friendly, helpful and courteous. They are staffed 24-7 to help its residents and provide security to the building. Like other halls, you will require to either scan in to Calhoun or sign-in any other non-resident student.
Advantages of Calhoun:
However Calhoun sort of makes up for all its lacking with its location. It is a block closer to the centre of the campus than the other dorms and it has the tennis and beach volleyball courts right across it. Also the importance of each floor having its own laundry can never be underestimated. A few of this perks make life bearable at Calhoun.
