Like many college students that just graduated from high school, I had grandiose ideas about campus life. I had watched so many movies I only saw the comedic side of the frat parties, drama, and wars with the dean. After my first semester, I knew it was time to move off campus. Had I known the reasons below, I could have saved myself a great deal of trouble.
All college students need peace and quiet. I had term papers and studying that required a certain amount of solitude. The interruptions that take place in dorm hallways can be sporadic, but uncontrollable. Athens, Ohio rentals gave me the quiet time needed to be focused.
There’s no better alternative when it comes to privacy. When you live on campus, everything is shared. From the actual living space to showers, tubs, and even small luxuries. I always had to be mindful that my radio or TV might disturb someone else. If you think you can have anything to yourself, you are in for a rude awakening. My roommate’s friends stole everything from my food to my clothes.
Perhaps the best area I found to take up residence was Athens. It took me awhile, but the experts at Warhol Realty helped me find a rental that met all of my needs. The property was clean and affordable. Aside from that, it was in close proximity to my school, but just far enough to address my personal space.
