A fun place to stay. Freshman year, I desperately wanted to avoid Towers because of their reputation, Sutherland because of the walk and I knew if I was in a single room or all girls I'd go crazy. Forbes seemed like a natural fit. Spacious rooms, shared half-baths that make getting ready in the morning wayyy easier, huge hallways which are great for hanging out, and even some rooms had little patios. The lounges on every floor always had someone in them, which was great. Every could really find their niche with people here. And the large deck, pool table, kitchenettes, mini library and pingpong table meant you never had to go very far to find a nice study space or hang out environment. I had very mixed feelings about the people I made friends with there, but the dorm overall was great. Worth the walk down forbes daily.

The honors dorm, but hardly the stereotyped scene you would think. You'll find engineers solving the mysteries of calculus, you'll find people tripping on acid, you'll find people who are out partying 3, 4 times a week--mixed personalities and people for sure

Forbes was the best place I could have lived as a freshman. It was a real community feel, and I made friends that have lasted throughout college. I loved Forbes.

No kitchens but only two rooms share a bathroom.

The most unique experience you will receive. Year after year, residents who live here leave with a new family. There is a fitness facility with treadmills, elipticals, and a ab machine. We have a pool table and are the only dorm with a ping pong table. We have an outdoor patio, library and an enormous lounge on the 2nd floor. Don't let the "Honors" title fool you into thinking this is a boring place.

Nice sized apartments but had to share a bedroom.
