Loving at Traditions was great for my son. He met friends, bonded and enjoyed the interaction. They should have more staff on the weekend to help with the intoxicated kids who break everything. Food is good but not for the price… Full Review ▶

The dorm is nice for the first year to make new friends, but you also have to put up with slow internet, black mold, and puke on the carpet after a long weekend. The security staff is a joke, I once… Full Review ▶

In my opinion the BEST place for a freshman to live. I thought it was going to be way out of my price range at 1000/mo. Then I visited on a whim and I learned that that 1000/mo had MEAL PLAN… Full Review ▶

Overall, the trad is fine. It's not great, but for a dorm it's really not bad at all. I think it's an ideal place for freshmen, but I certainly wouldn't live here as an upperclassman. It's a lot nicer than the… Full Review ▶

DO NOT LIVE HERE!!! Yes, the location is one of the closest to campus but it is NOT worth it. First off the food is absolutely disgusting and you are required to buy a meal plan. The staff is rude and… Full Review ▶

I only stayed at the Tradition at Northgate this summer, but living there was pretty enjoyable. The best thing about the apartments, I would say, is its proximity to campus. The apartments are literally right across the street from campus. Having… Full Review ▶

The Tradition at Northgate is a very enjoyable environment to live in while you are transitioning into college life. It is nice to be able to get up 15 minutes before class starts and just walk to class. Its also really… Full Review ▶

I'm going to be brutally honest and tell my account of The Tradition how I experienced it this past semester. The Tradition has many features, more so than you might think a dorm style complex might have. The free tutoring center… Full Review ▶

Tradition at Northgate is easily the worst place I've ever lived. The only good thing about it is its proximity to campus, but that's where the pros stop. Cons: The price you pay for rent is absolutely ridiculous. After being forced… Full Review ▶
