Senior-year perfection. Great location for hosting parties, and you get to feel like a somewhat-real adult. Not having a view is kind of a bummer, but maybe you’ll be too drunk to notice?
“There’s a good number of noise complaints, weekends especially, but overall it’s definitely one of the better living situations.”
Picturesque common room
