As a band member Landon Hall was convenient. Plus you were close to Grand River and the Union. Adams field right in front was a great place to hangout during the few weeks of nice weather.
Still remember playing Halo in Emmons with Naymick back in 2003/4. He would show up once in a while and hang out. Brody was a fun place to be, and the RAs were cool as long as we didn't break anything or drink in the halls.

I actually feel like I got a pretty good deal with McDonel (Only year in the dorms). The food specifically there sucked, but I had Holmes right next door that was always open, and pretty much every class I went to, I went right by SnyPhi. I was maybe 10-15 minutes walking from any of my classes, the biggest drawback was that it was a very bad hike to get to basketball games, but I had a bus pass second semester, so it worked out.
Chalk another one up for Wonders (South Wonders is where I was). Cool thing about this thread is that you have all parts of campus represented. MSU is a good time, a great place, and a fine school. Doesn't matter where you live, really. It is what you make of where you are. Opportunities are endless there.
I lived in McDonald Hall, and it was very "meh". I had fun, but it is the bottom of my living history. That said, there is not enough West Circle love in this thread. I lived in 3rd floor Gilchrist Hall in 04-05. I had a single room. The floors were small enough that you could literally know everyone on your floor. Huge chunks of the floor would hang out and find a house party on weekends. The location is great. Short walk to downtown and the neighborhoods. Walking to Conrad in the winter was a bitch, but that's why you skip class, isn't it? Hitting up The Union for a $5 Hot-N-Ready at will was crucial. I loved the cafeteria, but maybe that was because I worked there. Did the whole student supervisor thing for a couple of years in West Circle, and it was probably the best job I've ever had. There was a downside to Gilchrist and West Circle however...the band. I have nothing against the band, and in fact, I love the band. But dinners from August to mid-November sucked. They would practice in the late afternoon at Demonstration Field, and then at 6pm, fucking slam the cafeteria. If you were working, they kicked your ass for about an hour. Food would run out, lines would be insane, the dishroom would back up, whatever. If you just wanted to eat, well, let's just say there are few things in this world that are worse than expecting to get waffle fries, only to find those awful Smiley Fries instead.
But yeah, Gilchrist Hall all the way. And I know...cool story, bro.

I'd probably pick Emmons again. Closest dorm to Munn. Also, the cafeteria is a trillion times better than it was back in 2006.
Reading this thread got me thinking about advice for a non-student regarding eating at the new Brody food complex. Haven't eaten in any of the dorm since my faculty days a million years ago but live in the area so thinking about giving Brody food a try. Any suggestions? Is it a hassle to pay for someone without a food pass?
If I could do it all over again, I would probably still choose Case (I lived there all 4 years). Stupidly close to Munn/Brez/SS, brand new caf, the football team lives there, Madison is in it, and no community bathrooms.
Shaw may be in the middle of campus, but it's nowhere close to anything. I would rather take a dorm close to stuff, than making it a walk for everywhere. Plus community bathrooms suck.
If it wasn't case, I would still roll in South Complex, just because of the suite bathrooms and proxemity to MSU sports. The #2 choice would be Wonders, because of burgers and that's where the hoops freshman live. #3 would be Wilson for late night, #4 would be Holden.
I did two tours in Akers before getting off campus. The rooms were good, but geographically speaking it was like living in Afghanistan.

What do you have against Holden?
Doesn't the train roll by at 3am?

Before you ask, yes, I am a girl.
Trains roll by all the damn time but after living there for a week (two max) you completely tune it out.
South Hub in 08
Some of my Spartan artwork and Keebdaddy!
Souf hub 06. Go on witcho bad self
I lived in Wonders all 4 years. Great spot. As others said, South Complex, or South Neighborhood, or whatever it's called now, is close to all the athletic facilities. I was an Urban Planning major, so all my classes were over in the UPLA building by the tennis courts, and I was a scout player for the women's b-ball team, so I was at the Bres quite a bit. Wonders was right in the middle of it all.
In all, I'd say South Complex is most ideal. Case or Wonders would be my selections if I had to do it all over again.
Wait, you were South 06? So was I. Awwwww shit son
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
SOUF HUBBBBBBBBBBB Y'ALL. What floor?
Nostalgia is a human weakness.
I lived in N. Hubbard and East Holmes coed floor. The coed floor was nice (lots of hot girls) but I was too much of a wuss. Did meet my wife while staying there but she lived in Wilson and I met her in Shaw. Hubbard had a lot violence but the food was good if you like Nachos and fried chicken for meals 2 times a week each.
On second thought, go for Shaw. A lot of upperclassmen there to make liquor store trips and a lot of people having fun. Centrally located and not a bad caf.
I would disagree with this. I lived in North hubbard (03-04) (also near the train) and would constantly get woken up by it in the fall semester when you had to keep the windows open to cool down the room.
I really hated that train.
I used to party on the 8th floor. I probably know you
Oh, and "Akers and Akers of sh!t!!!!!"

And you end up missing it when it's gone, I loved that train after a few weeks, and missed it during the summers, and when I moved out of the dorms.
