Nice Move

After a year in on-campus student housing, you’ll feel violated by the university. The prices are astronomical, and in return, you get to share an oversized closet with a friend or a complete random. Either way, your personal space will be close to nonexistent, and you’ll more than likely hate the person you live with by the year’s end. Also, bringing a girl back and shacking on your twin bed is far from ideal.
