Vassar is a beautiful college with old historical buildings - The Alumnae House is absolutely beautiful.
We booked a "dorm room" because it was the only option and we were quite surprised to see the room also - as "hanleyster"stated. His description is very adequate - although I will add that it is not horrible. If you are just sleeping and are happy to save a little money (only 65.00 a night ) than why not? You do have to share bathrooms - there are about 3-4 bathrooms on the floor with showers and stalls. We were able to move after the 1st night to a private room - it was very very nice. Even though we did not see anyone else using the shared bathrooms I still preferred to have my own bathroom. I could have gotten used to the tiny dorm room but not sharing a shower. There are no tv's in the rooms but there are cozy living rooms with tvs. There is also a library that you can sit in. Breakfast is included - a good basic continental breakfast. For some reason they just can't cook scrambled eggs - they were a big hard cake of stuck together eggs - the most horrible scrambled eggs I have ever tasted. But that was the only negative thing.
Peaceful, quiet, beautiful - you become part of a different age while you are there.
