Transcript lAlkire, U$ Ink Cm: on versus off campus living 7~h< here are two types of students in the melting-pot melee of life outside of class: those who live on campus in one of UH's three residential facilities and those who live off campus at a parents' home or an independent apartment. As we step out of the classroom life, we step into houses, apartments, or dormitories; the door closes and another life begins. Style of living is a personal recipe, where a difference in spices can create a range of palate sensations. What do UH students look for in their individual recipes? Something fast and simple? While most commuters are circling the parking lot for the nth time, dorm dwellers are getting a couple of extra zzzs in the morning. And what about that afternoon nap between classes? Those dorm people are in their own beds while the commuters are sleeping head down on Problems Of Calculus in the library trying to prove the theory of osmosis. If flushing noises aren't a bother, then the bathroom couch is another option. For every catch comes a downfall. Craig King, a Bates Hall resident for three years, said, "Usually, I can look at the food and know what to avoid. It's food made by the lowest bidder, what can you expect?" Noise level also hits high on the list of complaints. April Bass, a four year resident, said, "The worst scenario is living next to 'loud stereo' or 'loud sex."' If your quality study time occurred during red lights and your tan was from waiting for the bus, you were probably a commuter. The common consensus is that commuters love privacy and space or have a lack of funds for a dorm room. First year student Micah Webb's worst nightmare was ending up with a "Roommate from hell." For some, it became apparent by college-age that the only person they wanted to tolerate was themselves. Best of all, if you lived with folks who thought that rent, food, and clothes could only be repaid by your familial act of love, well, who could beat a deal like that? Of course there were those who felt the only relationship they had or could have with their relatives was in name only. Convinced they were either adopted or switched at birth, they ventured out into the world to experience "freedom." "Choice, Discretion, and Independence" was their bill of rights. A downside of this philosophy was lack of time for social lives and a feeling of disassociation from the campus. Asked if she had a choice between choosing to commute or to live in the dormitories, one student said," Getting maybe a year of experience in the dorms would be good to get a foundation at school that you normally wouldn't get while commuting. Once you've lived in the dorms you can move off campus, taking the close friendships, maturity, and knowledge with you." -Joannie Sah
