There are many choices about the dormitory in UIUC. For example, we lived in Sherman Hall, which is for upper-division undergraduates and graduate students. The room may be small but complete in every detail, such as microwave, fridge, and lots of storage spaces. It is also a prime location close to the Quad.
The purpose of Quad Day is to expose students to the diverse opportunities available for becoming involved in the campus community, especially student organizations.
