Kathryn gives parents the best advice when looking for a dorm for their children. I really wish I had thought of a lot of this back in my college days. She suggests some features and amenities to look for that I wouldn't have even thought of now, after the fact. Highly recommended for those about to go off to college, or even those who already have, and are looking for a better living arrangement.
