    The dorms are difficult to live in. It's hard adapting to the noise and a LOT of kids here act crazy. After a while it calms down though. Aside from that, I love Carbondale. It's beautiful and there are tons of things to do. The strip is right next to campus though, and it's nice being able to walk only ten minutes if you want to go out to eat or shop.
