797 words - 4 pages

1. Ever walk outside and there is ice all over your car and no way to make it to campus on time? Or do you ever feel unsafe where you live? Well if MCC builds a dorm on campus it could save money, be a safer environment and be a positive experience for students.
2. Most people of the opposition think that building a dorm would cost too much money. With all the building supplies, workers, etc. it is sure to cost a lot of money; money that the college could spend on better things such as more parking spaces.

4. It is said that people don’t enjoy living in a dorm life in college because of the lack of privacy, invasion of personal space, and having roommates. Most people don’t like to have to share a room with somebody or shower in a multiple person shower. People especially don’t like the feeling that they have no privacy and most dorms are just non-appealing. While it is true most people have negative opinions about dorms, if done right it could be a hit with students. Instead of it just being a lack of space and privacy create an area where there are four separate bedrooms with doors and a little communal living space. The fact that the rooms have door is more then enough to get people interested. Not only will having a door provide privacy it will take away the feeling of having no...
