Liked: Great location, beautiful main building, helpful staff, comfortable space.

Disliked: The only thing really was the funky smell permiating the dorm building. Be nice to use some aromatherapy to mitigate the problem. Also the messiness of other guests but thats not the fault of staff.....its a personal thing.
