Teter Quad Residence Hall (Dorm Review) - My Home Away from Home

Indiana University Bloomington is a public research university located in southern central Indiana. Home to the Hoosiers, some nationally recognized schools like Kelley (business) and Jacobs (music), and known for its men's basketball program, it's also one of the most beautiful college campuses in the United States of America. Many famous alumni have attended and graduated from Indiana University and you could be one in the future too! Your journey starts in the 12 or so residence halls that make up a first year student's college experience. These residence halls are as follows (currently): McNutt, Foster, Briscoe, Collins, Eigenmann, Ashton, Union Street Center, Wright, Teter, Forest, Read, and Willkie. We will look at Teter Quad Residence Center in more detail.

Teter Quad Residence Hall has been my residence hall home for the past year and a half. I signed up for residence hall housing like many freshman do and preferenced the Central Neighborhood which Teter Quad is a part of on my housing form that I submitted to the Residential Programs and Services Housing Assignment Office. A few weeks later during the summer, I got my housing assignment for my freshman year. I was going to be living in Teter Quad in the Central Neighborhood and I was pumped to meet new people and my Residential Assistant (RA). During the whole move-in process and Welcome Week, I met and became friends with many fellow students on my floor and got to know my RA on a personal level as friends. Currently, I am still living in Teter as a sophomore college student. The residence hall experience is something that no one individual should forget because it allows you to bond with fellow students and expand your comfort zone when transitioning between different environments (high school to college). 

Now, why do I love Teter Quad Residence Hall? There are five main reasons. First, it's centrally located on the Bloomington campus thereby being closer to your classes. Second, the faculty and student staff who run Teter Quad are super friendly and helpful. Third, the proximity of Wright Food Court and Union Street Market make it really convenient to get food when you need it. Fourth, Teter Quad has its very own game room and theatre that you can relax or have fun in with friends on the weekends. Finally, the Central Neighborhood's only Academic Support Center is located in Teter Quad! Those are just a few of the reasons why you should seriously consider living in Teter Residence Hall!
