DormSplash.com ranked the best dorms and RAs across the country and Georgia State University ranked No. 1 with best overall dorms. It also ranked highly for best RAs.
The site ranked the Best 14 Dorms in the Country, Worst 14 Dorms in the Country, 14 Biggest Party Dorms in the Country, 14 Schools with the Best Dorms, 14 Dorms with the Hottest Residents, and 14 Schools with the Best RAs.
GSU was No. 1 with best overall dorms in the country.
GSU was No 4 in Best Dorms in the country. (It is not clear to me what the difference is in these categories.)
GSU was No. 6 for Best RAs.
I can’t tell exactly what the rankings were based on. It looks like it was based on the 7100 reviews on the site (at the time). I found this one paragraph of explanation but didn’t find any other info on how they were picked:
“Today we’re excited to launch DormSplash.com! A dorm review website with over 7100 reviews as of today! Check it out to read and write anonymous reviews of college dorms all across the country. Along with the launch, we’re releasing our first annual Dormy Awards!”
It is still great for Georgia State to get some recognition even if the methodology is unclear. UGA and Ga. Tech are not ranked in the top on any of the lists.
Are you surprised that Georgia State’s dorms were ranked above other universities in the state? Have you had a child stay in the GSU dorms? What did they think?
Did your college students stay in dorms or apartments when they went to college? Which dorms did they have the best experiences with? What were you looking for in dorm life and what were your kids looking for? Did you have much faith in the RAs? Did you feel like they were really keeping an eye on things?
