Freshman dorms provide academic and social events that aclimate incoming students to the college experience. Some of the older residence halls lack air conditioning, though they are well maintained.

While Greeks do offer some social events, many dormitories host their own parties, though alcohol policies are strictly enforced. By far the largest party and social events are those associated with sporting events. Most students are North Carolina residents, so on the weekends the campus is fairly empty.
