Yeah, I get the reason why the residents are called Vermin.
Never did I mean to imply that every dorm is going to be as nice as off campus apartments. There's only so much you can do with what you've got. Carroll first became a dorm while I was at ND (I can't remember who lived there before, priests?). I pitied the poor souls.
I know from lousy rooms in a decrepit setting at ND, by the way. First semester freshman year I lived in the old, no longer extant St. Ed's annex. I also don't think the entire dorm had been renovated at that time since it was built. In 1882. It sure didn't look like it. The most lasting memory of I have of St. Ed's is the smell of roach powder.
