    Living Arrangements

    Well we're less than a month away from school. For those of us heading to (or back to) Ames this fall, where's everybody living?

    I'll be at the grove. Anybody else lived there this past year? I'm hoping how nice it is will outweigh how poorly it seems to be managed. I haven't lived there yet though so we'll see.

    Also, for anyone who has lived there, I got my assignment today. My building number was something like 1423. Anybody know which building that is?

    Watch out with threads like these, people will **** on them. I would give you a real answer, but it seems that ******** is appropriate in this situation.

    Re: Living Arrangements

    I know there's plenty of dorm type threads around. But I didn't see one worth bringing back that might address my question. It's more of me asking about the Grove than anything.

    Cyclone Plaza next year! So pumped but I have heard horror stories about Campustown property management.

    You won't like it as much as you think. Seems to be a common theme with people that live in campustown.

    To the OP, I'm in a house this year.

    I'll be living in a house on hilltop road which is right off Tripp St. It will be the furthest I've ever lived from campus.

    As long as they take care of maintenance requests and aren't too nitpicky about parties, we should get along just fine. I have some friends that say Cyclone can be a blast if you know how to throw parties right (as in not letting it get crazy to the point campustown is banging on your door). But I also had some friends lose their party priviledges at campustown due to a rando. I'm hoping I have learned from them.

    Living there now, or will be?

    I'm really excited to move in! Just wish I knew which building it was. And do you know by chance which room corresponds to which room letter? (ex. 240A..240B..) I just kinda want the room down the hall haha

    Yes it is. Just thrilled to be out of the dorms. Wasn't a huge fan of my floor and looking forward to be able to have my own space to get away.

    Re: Living Arrangements

    University Village. Of course that is where I am staying at right now and will continue on through the fall.

    Probably the best place to live in Ames as a student.
