You COULD walk, but you're looking at 30-40 minutes (1.5ish miles each way).
If you really don't want to drive, I would recommend the stuff close to Drake even though the area isn't great. It's really not that bad, and the buildings are pretty secure. Old Main is gated and walled and has security onsite (plus it's a block from campus police).
Another good idea might be to get a duplex in Beaverdale. It's a quiet and quaint neighborhood near Drake with a lot of great housing. Most of it is $900 or less for 2-3 bedrooms, and they tend to have basement storage and garages.
Just go to Gateway, get the same schedule as me, and CARPOOL!
Lol I paid my reservation deposit and have been approved at Gateway. Loft 335 is mine! Just need to sign the lease next time I'm in Des Moines.
Yay, congrats! =D I need to call/harass the people at Old Main to see if they've received my security deposit check yet >.>
Yeah, I was tweaking about that. Lol I sent in a $270 check (2 application fees and the reservation/holding deposit) and was freaking out she didn't get it (I've been raised to worry about that sort of thing). I just kept emailing her and thankfully she let me know the second it got in
