Where Would You Live?

Imagine for a moment that instead of being alumni, as many Slice readers are, you went back in time and became prefrosh again. (!) Would you make the same housing choices that you did the first time around?

To get you thinking, we pulled together a handful of fairly recent i3 videos (Interactive Introduction to the Institute). Take a look, and let us know what you think. Does it seem that things have changed a lot since you were a freshman? Would you ever return to dormitory living? Where would you live?

I lived in two places off-campus and two places (Bexley and Senior Haus) on-campus, so I have to think about this.

Bexley and Senior Haus both had their own unique “charm”, so it’s hard to choose which one I would have liked to lived at for four years.

Can’t beat either location for getting to class in ten minutes after waking up. Of course having a room facing Mass. Ave while at Bexley almost trumps the chance to have a room with a balcony at Senior Haus.

I can’t decide.

East Campus for sure.

If not, maybe no. 6.

If not, maybe Bexley had it not been passed through strong tribal inheritance.
