It's just more convenient and a lot less expensive doing the math. That's probably about five thousand dollars cheaper than living on campus, and I have a four and a half bathroom for bedroom townhome, which I share with three other remains. Definitely, because I chose the right roommates, but I have a lot more room, a lot more privacy. What? Not, uh, comes with the washing dryer whole nine yards. It feels like it definitely feels like a home away from home. As I said before, three other roommates, the only downside, I would say, is the stairs. I really like the set up of these because it's definitely a lot more open in a dorm room when I was in my dorm. This is my room To the window sill on that window sill was a bit on the other side, where my dogs can always was where My bad wass. Now I have a full sized mattress versus the extra large twin, which is in the dorm rooms again. It was fully furnished, so it didn't have to pay for furniture. I just had to pay for my betting clothes and whatnot. I currently pay a little under six hundred bucks a month and doing the math. On an annual basis comes with a shoe closet in my other roommate, which will be down the hall, his separate living space given example of other spaces. I wanted to offer additional perspective for those living on campus. I personally prefer living off campus because I like to cook. We're living in town, so we're gonna give you different perspectives. I prefer it because it was just all know things like it's old and not whatsoever. Had a lot of problems have a leaking flooding and stuff. So we lived in Carpenter Wells, and they kind of like they tried to compromise between dorm life and apartment life, and they tried. I would say on campus it didn't have some benefits. The experience is, there's just nothing like it And being on campus, you are so close to classes. It was, I guess it was nice for just the first year, but after that, very quickly, Yeah, very quickly wanted to move off campus and definitely not too far off campus. We're only like, maybe like a ten minute walk from campus so bad and this way, like it's definitely that's It's a good investment, but I prefer off campus because it's you can really grow into yourself a lot more. So Andrew actually live in the dorms here, but he's living in a couple of apartments around. Can you describe it? Because there's good bad, all right. So when I first came to Texas Tech and started living at the Avenue and that was a town home and at random, roommates have no idea what I was doing. Remember the first day I came attacked that night, I was like I'm gonna learn how to cook and I learned how to, like, Teach us About could take care of myself, just all the responsibilities that you didn't really think about it when you were living at home. I have to recommend living off campus because you learn so many morals and values. You learn a lot about yourself and what you can and can't do. Just howto live on your own and how to take care of yourself and also get to be a lot of really cool. You mean cool Roommates get, too make a decision after the year lease is up. Jonah lived in the growth for a year before living here in the lot, and that was an experience to say. I would definitely say living close to campus that living close to campus and not living far away is mainly the key. When you're living off campus, because when you have to take the bus and you're about five miles away and you have a class is in thirty minutes, you're going to be late or you might you might wanna skip class or something because of over time. Like, enjoy living off campus because of you. That cooking, you learn howto Just take care of yourself. You get to have pets, but we have two dogs here eleven.
