Ok, so I have a housing update.
I'm still in talks with a few guys about splitting a house in A2, but there's been no progress in the search for a place in the last couple months. I really want to get housing taken care of, as it's the last nagging concern I have for the fall. As a result, I want to keep my options open while housing is still available in A2, so here we go...
I started talking with Woodbury Gardens about possibly getting a 2 bedroom, 2 person apartment.
I'm looking for one male roommate. Woodbury is really close to campus, and has a bus stop right next to it for the cold days. Some info about me and what kind of roommate I'm looking for:
-21 years old. From California (near Los Angeles). Graduate of USC.
-I'm really laid back, and I usually keep it quiet a night. You won't have to worry about excess noise with me. I spend most of my free time watching sports/TV shows/movies, reading, going to the gym, and just going out. I'm really looking for someone who is friendly but also quiet in the evening, since noise/sleep is a big concern for me.
-I'm open to possibly having a pet, but I think there are fees at Woodbury and I'd probably prefer not to have one, at least as a 1L. One less thing to worry about, and they can get in the way when you don't have your own backyard.
-I want someone who will be willing to clean the apartment fairly regularly - I don't mean every week, but quite a few times per semester would be nice. I spent the last year living with four other guys who didn't clean AT ALL. It wasn't fun.
-Many of my past roommates have been very irresponsible and immature (forgetting to turn the stove and other appliances off for long periods, leaving the doors unlocked all night, etc.) and I'm really trying to avoid that.
-Non-smokers please (I'm from California and I'm kind of a health nut)
-I'm probably going to either bring a car or buy one in Michigan, and I would be happy to do joint grocery trips
The places I've looked at have two bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath, and most seem to come with a washer/dryer (although those will probably go faster than apartments without W/Ds). The guy at Woodbury said to figure about $575 per person per month.
PM me if you want more info.
