I'm a freshman there right now and I live in newsom. Its alright but i would only choose it for its location...right next to the im fields and not to far from classes and everything else. Corbett and parmelee are pretty good choices, but you can only choose 2 suite style dorms if I remember correctly. So I would go with corbett and parmelee and then whatever standard style looks the best. Don't go with allison though...it does suck.
