Mcmahon Hall offers a wonderful dorm experience. With views overlooking lake Washington and the campus, it sits on top of the hill and has magnificent balconies with views that go on forever. The rooms are grouped into quads, with a small central area with a microwave and a fridge. You share a bathroom with 8 people as the rooms are all doubles. You get a great chance to meet new people. The floors are mainly tile although some are carpet. The hot water heater is very nice, and the bathrooms are kept very clean and orderly by the excellent staff who cleans them out 2 to 3 times a week. The elevators are quick and the food is amazing.!
